About Me

My photo
I am a teddy bear artist by profession. I also play rhythm guitar with a local bluegrass band on weekends that I am not off to teddy bear shows. I have a very funny papillon named PJ. He is 10 years old and he keeps me mobile by making me take him walking every day. I love antiquing and use many of my finds for my teddy bears. I am just starting to do mixed media artwork and collage. You can find some of my things my website:www.marthasbears.com

New owl

I just finished a new owl.  He is 7" tall and made from an antique wool skirt (over a sturdy wool underlay.)  The wool "feathers" are not hemmed or fray checked.  I wanted them to fray a little to look like feathers.   He was very fun to make.
Hallo who ween

Wonderful!!! What you've done with this fabric is so well suited to the owl creation. I'd be very surprised if this little guy stays with you for very long - unless of course, he's not for sale. Great job!

How wonderful your owl looks, He should be in Harry Potter or some spooky story. I adore him.

Wow, Martha, your imagination has no end! I'm impressed... and he's just the thing for the Online Hallowe'en Tour, don't you think?
