Carved Wooden Teddy Bears that are for sale

Last winter, I had a wonderful time carving wooden Teddy Bears and Pandas as part of my 100 day carved wooden day project.

They all have jointed arms and legs, so they can sit and move about.

And, now it’s time for these little darlings to find their new homes…..

1- This Panda is approximately 7 1/2 inches (19 cm) tall $75 + shipping

2- This Panda is approximately 6 1/2 inches (16.5 cm) tall $75 + shipping

Note: It has a beaded necklace that can be removed if you prefer them to not wear a necklace.

3- This little Panda has a gold heart, red bead necklace and red shoes and is approximately 51/2 inches (14 cm) tall $75 + shipping

4- This Panda has a gold heart, a gold bead necklace, red shoes that have flowers on the soles, green and purple leggings and a flowered body suit and is approximately 7 1/2 inches (19 cm) tall

$95 + shipping

5- This Teddy Bear has red bead necklace, red boots with flowers on the soles, blue and white striped leggings and a flowered body suit and is approximately 7 1/2 inches (19 cm) tall $95 + shipping

6- This Teddy Bear is approximately 7 1/4 inches tall (18 cm) and has a pinkish gold necklace, pink and purple high top boots that have flowers on the soles, a floral body suit and leggings. $95 + shipping

I have made a couple of dresses that are available, too….

A hand knitted old fashioned looking dress: $35 + shipping

It fits the taller bears but is too big for the smaller bears

This is what it looks like on the bears (the bear is not included in the purchase of the dress…. they are all sold separately)

And here is a little sewn dress that is reversible. It fits all the bears. At this point, I am just pinning it in place on the bears, as it fits each bear differently. $15 +shipping

Here’s what the dress looks like on the bears (dress and bears sold separately)

If you are interested in purchasing any of the bears, please drop me a note in the comments or send me an email and I will get back to you asap.

Teddy Bears Adventures and Picnic

The Saffron Woven Teddy Bears invited some wooden teddy bears and tiny woven bears to have an adventure with them, and then to join them for a picnic.

They climbed onto some tractors and into some wagons and even a bulldozer to ramble off to the picnic place.

The tiny Blue Bear of Happiness was thrilled to drive the clockwork tractor, but found changing the gears was challenging and sent the passengers tumbling a few times.

They didn’t mind, in fact it was kind of fun.

Jimmy Bear drove the larger tractor with style and his passengers enjoyed the ride in the various trailers, carts and chariots, but did find the heat to be rather intense. (It was blisteringly hot!)

A bulldozer was the ride of choice for a few of the Pandas and their friend….

All the bears sang ‘The Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ at the top of their lungs.

Sadly, the carved wooden teddys found the heat to be un-bearable, so they scampered back into the studio and sat in front of the fan to cool off.

The woven Saffron Bears were perfectly happy in their sun hats, so the sun didn’t bother them.

Jimmy Bear played his guitar and all the other bears loved it.

Two of the bears had brought along a telescope to watch birds, but were able to keep an eye on their carved wooden friends to make sure they made it safely back to the studio.

Only one of the bears had remembered to bring a parasol, but shared it when anyone need a little rest from the sun.

The pandas wondered if the grass might taste like bamboo, but the hot sun had dried it out so much that they decided to not sample it.

And two little bears leaned back in their folding chair and quietly dozed off right after this picture was taken.

The tiniest bears were so glad that someone had remembered to bring their travelling bed along and after some giggling and wiggling, they fell asleep, too….

While the Blue Bear of Happiness and Wee Brown Bear enjoyed the shade of their umbrella.

All in all, it was a fine afternoon on an incredibly hot and sunny summer day.

I designed and wove all the Teddy Bears for the Mirrix Summer Weaving Challenge 2022.

The Saffron Bears were all woven on the Mirrix Saffron Loom. LINK

The tiny Bears were woven on the Baby Duo looms from Hello! Looms. LINK

All the ‘how to’ links to the videos for the step by step process of weaving all the looms are listed on

L I N K (Note: They will be added one by one through the week of August 8 to 15, 2022 and will remain available once they have been released, so there is no time limit on getting the weaving done.)

Happy Weaving! And, may the teddy bears bring you delight!

A Wooden Teddy Bear Carved in Response to Grief

The death of our beloved 15 year old small dog has been really hard on both my husband and me.

I wrote in my previous post about the Comfort Doll that I carved from a fallen branch- LINK

When I was carving her, I was inspired to carve a Teddy Bear that would have an open space in it’s heart…..

I used amber color shellac to paint the Teddy Bear to look like our little dog, and then…

My husband and I each placed a tiny scoop of our little dog’s ashes in the open circle.

Then I glued a gold heart over it to seal it….

The glue seals it completely.

It took a while to dry and turn clear.

We both held the little teddy bear and found it to be very comforting….

We sat Teddy Bear and Pollydolly in front of the box of our little guy’s ashes, but when I finished weaving her outfit and knitting a red sweater and blue jeans for him, we sat them on top of the box:

My husband loves working with metal, so he made a little steel doggie: Edward Alloy in tribute to our wee fellow, and it has joined them on the box…..

We have found this tender making of small things in celebration of our wee dog to be very comforting!

Carved Little Wooden Teddy Bears

I took a break from social media last summer and spent my time carving and weaving 😊

One of the oh so fun series that I carved are these little bears with moveable arms and legs.

These darling little wooden Teddy Bears are approximately 3 1/2 inches tall, although Teddy F is 4 inches tall.

They fit perfectly in the palm of your hand and are very cuddly.

I carved them from very old Douglas Fir.

Teddy A has sold.

Teddy C has a ‘Birthmark’ on the left hand side of his/her face, from a tiny branch that revealed itself in the carving.

He/she wears an oak acorn cap from the lovely oak trees around the corner from us.

Teddy D has sold.

Teddy F is painted gold, but all the others are varnished.

They are all $95 each + shipping
