This is "Violet", a miniature crocheted bear. She was crocheted using a pattern by Berta Hesen Minton. Please check out her website ThReAdTeDs at http://www.threadteds.com/ Berta has a wonderful new book out. If you love bears, and love to make bears, I know you will adore her new book and her wonderful patterns and kits.
Violet measures only 2 1/4 inches tall when standing. Her head is cotterpin joined and her arms and legs are thread joined. She is a tiny fairy bear with fairy dust sparkles on her cute little nose. She has real butterfly wings. Note: no creatures were harmed in collecting these wings. They were found lying out on my deck in the back yard. Violet also has a white real leather quiver, tiny golden bow and four tiny golden arrows with real feather fletches. Violet is in apprenticeship to Cupid and just loves to shoot her tiny love arrows into unsuspecting passersby.
