Tetley tea teddy bear cloth keepsake handmade children

I have been busy making in my studio over the last few days and Tetley Ted this new and adorable chap is one of the 2 cloth companions that I have made. They all live with me in The Studio. Here he is taking a nap in his very own cup! A cheeky chap and yet ever so polite. He is lovingly filled with sawdust ( it so reminds me of my dear Grandad’s shed and the smell of the woodshavings) and his long shorts & braces are hand stitched. I embroidered his features. I just love his face.

Here he stands ( or is he lying down?) at ease.

Tetley Ted sits on my sewing table surrounded by scissors, needles & pins, cotton & thread. Happy Days!
