Bruijntje Bear by Liesbeth de Bruijn

Liesbeth lives in Delft, famous for its blue porcelain, with her husband, two dogs and two cats.  She has been making bears since 1997 when she discovered a book about bear making at a local book store.

Since participating in her first teddy bear show in 2000 she has won several awards and nominations for her lovely bears.

Liesbeth uses either Schulte or Heimbold mohair and alpaca, adding character with hand painted and needle felted details.  If dressed, the clothes are from her own designs and hand knitted from mohair/silk yarn which she finds complements the mohair that she likes to use.
