Clara and Belle

Clara and Birdie are an unlikely pair, but that doesn't stop them from being the best of friends!  The same goes for Belle and Fishly, who enjoy each other's company very much! 

Clara and Belle are made from long-pile mohair and measure about 4.5 inches tall.  Each was completely hand sewn and coffee stained to create a well-loved, vintage look.  I added ruffled seam binding to their necks and then secured a tiny flower on for each.

Birdie and Fishly are made from brightly coloured Japanese felt that I embellished with embroidery thread.  I used glass beads for their eyes.

Above left is Clara the kitten and Birdie, and of course at right, Belle the bear with Fishly.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend:)
