Mindy and Lyn
Meet Mindy and her little elephant doll Lyn.
They are all dressed up and ready to go to Grandma's house. Grandma is baking cookies for them and they are going to have a tea party.
Mindy is so excited. She loves her Grandma!
Mindy is almost 5" and is made from a sparse curly mohair. She has black glass eyes and her nose is embroidered.

Little Lyn is almost 3" and made from a vintage grey upholstery velvet. she wears a matching dress and has ultra suede "stockings" that have been hand embroidered.

If this is not the most darling duo EVER, I don't know what IS! What a cute story about them, too! That lil' nose on your bear is so sweet, and the fabric you chose for their matching dresses is perfect! Really pretty! Did you embroider the shoes, too? Wow! You put such incredible detail into these teeny pieces! They're wonderful!

Aha! Now I know where you've been. Working on this cute pair, that's where! Such wonderful detail.

Too funny that her doll is an Elephant. Were we mind melding this week or what? LOL!

I don't know how you keep coming up with ideas for these bears -- each one is cuter than the last, and all so unique. These 2 are absolutely precious.

Very cute and so beautifully made, Yvette. You are so good at making them so small yet so detailed. Love them both. Mindy is very lucky to be able to go to grandma's for cookies. (I would love to tag along if she'd take me- please!).
