Today I would love to rant & rave about one of my favorite teddy bear designers....Aerlinn Bears by Esther Pepper. I came across her very special hand-made teddies on Etsy, and instantly fell in love with quite a few of them. Then I did something that I really should never do. I looked at Aerlinn Bears' past sales. I came across a bear called "Little Prince" and my heart suddenly started aching for him. These bears are all made to be OOAK (one of a kind) and so I knew that I would never have a "Little Prince" bear. But after several emails to Esther, I worked out a custom order for "Blue Bell" that you see here in the photo. She is from the same pattern as Little Prince, and is all of 2-1/4" tall. I love the shape of her head, her pointy nose, and "smokey" fur. She is my very first Aerlinn Bear, but I am confident that somewhere in the future I will be receiving another package from Esther in Australia.
