April OOAK

I made a new little bear named April and listed her late Sunday night on eBay. The next morning I got up and checked to see if I could find her in the listings on eBay. I was doing a slow burn as I was not able to find her out there and I checked every page. I understand that it can take a few hours for a listing to show up but this was pushing it a bit for me. Understand that I had shut my computer off and had not checked my e-mail. I was using mom's computer on my way out the door on my way to work.

Finally I logged into my eBay account to find the listing. Upon doing so I discovered that I sold April. I was a bit shocked that someone snapped her up so quickly, but I am glad that she did. April is on her way to live in Ohio.

Below are just a few pictures of April for your enjoyment.

April is a 7" orginial design mohair big head Teddy Bear. She has been carefully created from Schulte mohair hand dyed a creamy white. She is fully jointed and secured by the use of lock nuts, bolts, and discs. Paw and foots pads have been created from a hand dyed merino wool. April is filled with excelsior, fiberfill, and pellets for a nice weight. She can stand alone with a little help. Her sew-in tag is dated and has my signature.

Her flower is a hand made pale pink tissue chrysanthemum. Wrapped around the stem is a "Think Spring!" banner.

Her paper mache' box is hand decorated and painted, featuring a copy of early 1900's postcard art. It is oval, measuring 3 1/4" in length and 3" tall. It comes filled with pink & yellow crinkled paper shreds.
