My name is Ingrid and I live in Boskoop, the green heart of the Netherlands.
As long as I can remember I was always busy doing things with my hands.
Knitting, making my own clothes and even making my own soap.
Once, I bought a bear making kit on a fair.
I didn't touch this kit for years, untill all of a sudden I wanted to make the bear.
After making one bear, I wanted to make more, I was infected with the bear "virus". I started with making bears out of kits and use other patterns, but that wasn't enough. I started to design my own bears and other animals.
All my bears and other animals are handmade and one of a kind.
I use several techniques and materials for my creations, like (felting) wool, fabric, mohair, faux fur and apoxy sculpt.
All my bears have a Golden Elm tag in their back and come with a birth certificate.
Because of the small parts my bears are not toys en therefore not suitable for children under 14 years of age.
Unfortunately I can't keep all of my bears to myself so I will have to put some of them up for adoption.
I hope you enjoy looking through my stall and maybe you will find one you would like to adopt and give a lovely home.
My bears come from a smoke free home.
