Wilde & Woolly Bears

Award-winning Teddy Bears


Years ago, my parents were making doll carriages and other kinds of doll accessories for doll collectors. They were buying dolls to showcase their merchandise. I was making cloth dolls at the time, but they asked if I could create an old fashioned teddy bear to show with their creations.

Wilde & Woolly Bears was born. They won Best in Show, Best Dressed and Most Unique Bears at different shows. Some were featured in Teddy Bear Review Magazine, one in Texas Monthly Magazine, Texas Co-Op Magazine and the MacNeill Galley along with some newspapers. Some were included in the International Teddy Bear Connection film by Spectral Vision.

They’ve found homes all over the world: Australia, Canada, France, Belgium, Russia, Kazakhstan, South Africa, and all over the U.S.!

    I think she would like to live with me because she will have lots of friends to play with and she can help keep me company when I feel sad and lonely

    So I can’t like because I use blogspot… but I love stuffed animals, and she would go nicely with my others as she will have many news friends to be around.

    Terry, this cutie would have the heart of my ‘sleepy time bear’ that my hubby bought me years ago from a craft fair out in Washington, that cost him way over a hundred bucks just to keep me company while he was at sea, the navy, I have been wanting a lovely little lady to keep him company now since he sits by his self on my bed each day. Please if she is to be gifted, please let her come and live with my little ‘Peppermint’ , this is what I named my bear since he carries a small white and red pillow and a sleep cap of the same color.

    Your babies are so beautiful! I’m not surprised that they have found homes around the world. There is just something about a teddy bear that makes them immediately lovable.

      Thanks, Marcia! It has been really wonderful. As soon as the internet came of age, I had my bears up there for the world to see. They truly are a universal gift of love. 🙂

    She could keep the wolf and dog that I have gotten from Kate Douglas company as all three guard my shelf where I keep all my signed books. 🙂

    Love the red dragon red bear! Is he for sale?

      Cherri-Anne ordered him. But I have more red fur that I can make another and one more cloak cut out that I can make into another. So if you want him, he’s 59 + $8.75 shipping. The dragon fabric is like a satin with dragons embroidered on it. They don’t have any more of that fabric, so I can only make the one more. And thanks, Elizabeth! 🙂

    Thanks, Lori! It soooo needed it. It’s looking so nice. Replaced the water heater, but looks like it’s the electric that’s the trouble. Still waiting on the electrician to call back. I love that faux mink bear. She’s just the cutest. I’ll add her to the list. Thanks, lady!

      Hi, Toni, she sold. I’m in the middle of moving, so don’t know if I have more of that fur. I’ll check after I’m settled, but it will be probably the end of January before I can make any more bears. Thanks for loving her!

      Hey, Lisa! 🙂 I can make a purple/lilac bear! That’s so cute about the koalas! I would have to create a pattern for one, and with writing books, I just don’t have time. 🙂 Would you want the purple bear with suede paws or something embroidered on the paws? Name?

      Thanks so much, and sorry, Nancy! I’ve just found stuff in my spam folder and didn’t know my blog comments were all going there.

    I would like to have a bear for my birthday in September, if possible. I live in Germany and I am willing to pay the same amount in postage as the bear will cost for it to arrive safely. I have a paypal-account, so paying will hopefully be not a problem.
    Please contact me, if it will be possible.

    I purchased Celeste a number of years ago at a craft fair in Tulsa. She is #1 of 75
    and you gave me the magazine she was featured in. Can you tell me what her value would be today?

      How neat! Well, like anything, it’s the price someone would be willing to pay for any collectible. 😉
