Baxter is an original Teddy Bear by Lorraine Cathey of South Carolina. Originally a painter, Lorraine has been a fiber artist for many years, and became a member of our Craft Guild in 2014. Along with her teddy bears, she also creates wonderful needle felted wall hangings.

Each Teddy Bear is hand-crafted and hand-stitched by Lorraine, from her own patterns.  She uses a variety of fabrics for her bears, and no two are alike.  Lorraine considers these to be collector’s items, and not necessarily children’s toys, as the bears do have small parts (eyes and joints).

Baxter is a medium sized brown bear with big feet and a big heart.  His arms and legs are jointed, as is his head, so he can sit, stand, and look around.  He is approximately 12 inches from head to foot, and just about 9 inches high sitting. Lorraine used faux fur to make Baxter. He comes a name tag which has care information on the back.

An artist statement is also included.
