Teddy Bear's Tea

Two Victorian teddy bears made from retired quilts repose and converse on the Victorian settee leaning against pillows made from antique draperies at Carnegie Antiques.

I’m not big on teddy bears, but these ingeniously made from patterned, worn quilts have less cuteness and more art. Note the shape of the teddy bear’s nose, more pointed than fleshy and round—this is the Victorian pattern for a teddy bear, the “original” teddy bear, named for Teddy Roosevelt. I just learned that today from the proprietor, Judi Stadler, and a few other people who were discussing the bears.
