My bears are all designed and handmade by me. I use the best materials which I have to buy from foreign countries. Denmark being a relatively small country have no shops dealing with this kind of stuff. Luckily there is the Internet.
Of course, my bears are not for small children. They have glass eyes and are filled with polyester and steel shot or glass pellets for extra weight. My bears are always 5-way jointed and for the head I always use discs. However, I seldom use discs for the arms and legs as I find that the limbs sit tighter to the body when they are string jointed. The size is normally about 3.5 inches.
For foot pads I use high quality patch work fabric in colors matching the fur.
