I love to make teddy bears. I did it professionally for more than 10 years. What I love about making them, is no matter what pattern or fabric I use, they always turn out different. They have personality, its a surprise, its as if they come to life with the last stitch.
In 1986 I started The Roosevelt Bear Co. By 1990 I sold my bears in 200 stores worldwide. I stopped making them commercially around 1996, and have since only made them for myself. Because of
eBay.COM, I can share and make available some of my own prized bears and creations. I hope you'll become as fond of them as I am. They are like my family and friends.
Although I've only made a few pieces over the last 10 years, I've been in the mood to sew again. Thus I must make room in my cabinets for new creations. I've been working on dolls, mice, and bugs, as well as traditional bears.
Most of these bears and creatures were made from 1986 to 1996. They are from my personal collection and truly unique. Most are one of a kind. And becaus eeach bear has its own style and personality as it was made, I feel they are all one-of-a-kind.
Without further adieu let me introduce you to 2 of my friends:
mohair bear and his spotted doggy,
are ready for a walk and play.
yellow mohair bear is very special,
he wears a paper collar and ribbon
tie. His mohair pelt is the palest
of colors, like butter. He is all
jointed, has wool felt paw pads,
tiny glass shoe button eyes, and
detailed stitching on his nose and
claws. His little felt dog, who is
less than an inch long, was made by
an artist in
Australia. I found him while on a
trip down under. He is kept at bay
by a red thread leash. He is highly
I like bear
paired up with a friend, and these
two are ready to go out for a game
of 'fetch the ball'. The bear has a
black glass head pin attached to his
paw to represent a ball. The par
are so small it was hard to get a
good photo, but
they are all charm and whimsy.
yellow mohair bear has a paper logo
tag that is signed and dated 1992.
His paper collar is pinned on, and
slightly curled. They are both ready
for the dog park.
just over 2.75 inches tall or just
over 7 cm tall.
Although there is no logo hang tag
on the bear and his poochie, I will
add one before they
are shipped. These bears were never
made for resale, I made them for my
because I love bears. Cathy

Our Choices in Charitable Giving:

of our choices in making giving a part of the our Ebay experience.
First United Methodist Church, Ventura, CA- is
where my grand-niece attends preschool. They're a wonderfully kind group

she was 2 years old and now is nearly 4. The preschool is called Happy
Ventures. It truly is a happy place for little ones to grow and learn.
Dirty Dog Squadis dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abandoned and
neglected pets. We are an all volunteer, grass-roots organization based in
Environment and Protection of Animals Marina del Rey CA. I have
always had a soft spot for dogs. They are the best friends ever and in our
home have become part of the family.
For this reason I also support Boston Buddies. Which rescues
Boston Terriers all over Southern California. We adopted 2 of their rescue
dogs in 2011. They're absolutely a delight.
Boston Buddies Inc.Is a non-profit organization
dedicated to assisting any Boston Terrier in need in the Southern California
area. The Corporation will accept Boston Terriers from animal shelters, backyard
breeders, strays and private individuals who must surrender their pet, with the
intention of placing these animals in appropriate loving homes after interviews
with the potential adopters and home checks have been made.
Environment and Protection of Animals Huntington Beach CA.
Breast Cancer and other Cancer related charities. Cancer
has a prevalence in our family. Any sort of research that supports a cure,
or teaches patients how to manager their disease is near and dear to us.
We look for centers here in California and have supported the John Wayne
We also follow Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church in Houston Texas. As a
lifelong Christian, I feel his is one of the best messages of hope, whether you
believe or not. The power of positive thoughts are valid in any faith.
May God bless us all.
Blessings to you, Max Rainet.
