Everyone who goes to the and follows the easy entry directions has a chance to win this prim little guy made by me!

I am delighted to present to you, a Boggy Bottom Bayou Blackwater Bear. Boggy Bottom Bayou’s Blackwater Bears are a combination of my long love for everything prim and my even longer love for bears (way back when I was little!). They are so fun to make and equally hard to part with as they take on their own little personalities. Thank you for stopping and having a look at him for our PFATT Blog Giveaway!

Daniel’s fur is a sparse density pile 1/2 inch long, curly, matted, old Kaki mohair with a medium tan backing. and gives him a wonderfully warm and well loved appearance. Hw2qwdce is 12 inches tall.

He has fully jointed (arms, legs and head), using durable discs, tap bolts, and lock-nuts. His eyes are imported from Germany and are of hand-blown glass. Daniel’s nose is stitched layer over layer with coral colored pearl cotton. Paw pads are made from Kaki Merino wool felt with hand-stitched claws. He also has the characteristic hump in his back common to many antique bears.

Daniel is all ready for Valentine’s Day with a prim stitched heart and flower on his little plaid overalls and gold matte heart shaped buttons. His ruffled collar accents the colors in his outfit

All designs are original. All pieces are signed and dated by the artist, me. People who know me laugh when they find out that my hand-drawn patterns all start out on elementary school notebook paper…can’t sketch a thing on plain white paper! I began my Folk Art career while my boys were in grade school and that was the only thing that was always handy!
