Furry Friendship Bears

friendship-b02I frequently have people ask about a lower priced fur bear option.  They are just looking for an option that allows each family member to have a little keepsake of the original garment.  So, I’m thinking about adding my “Friendship Bear” option but am very conflicted about it.

I prefer to make the jointed bears from fur because they are a higher quality final product that should last a lifetime if taken care of.  However, they are time consuming and the price I have to charge reflects that.

I created a little pattern for about a 10″ non-jointed bear many years ago.  I call it my “Friendship Bear”.  It is much simpler to make than a jointed bear so I could bring it down to a price point of $65-$75.  However, it doesn’t convey near the quality that my jointed bears do and I don’t want to dilute my brand.  Any thoughts?
