Unique OOAK Bear!


Anybody collect teddy bears?

I have a unique & one of a kind bear, a Burra Bear. These bears are all handmade, each one unique, & come from Shetland Islands, Scotland.

On the site: “I designed and made my original bear in 1997, as a keepsake gift for my sister. My concept, to recycle an entire handknitted Fair Isle patterned Shetland woollen jumper into a bear, brought such a positive response and demand for more bears, in time gave me a full-time job. All the other Burra Bears sewn since then have been given the same characteristics of my first bear. It was made by salvaging fabric from a worn out, but unique Shetland jumper.”

Upcycling at its best!

This bear was donated, & rather than sell it at an event, I want to make sure it goes to a good home.

If you’re interested in this bear, please email me @ 4briannesbasics@gmail.com
