Sunnie Bears by Sonya Shaw
My name is Sonya Shaw and I am the artist who creates Sunnie Bears. I live in sunnie Southern California in the middle of the Mojave Desert with my partner, Mike, and my babies, Tilly, Ladybug, Sunnie, and Sunshine (all 3 1/2 lbs of her). Tilly is a poodle/terrier mix, Ladybug is a Yorkie/Silkie mix, and Sunnie and Sunshine are AKC registered Yorkies. All of them provide me with much inspiration.
I have been creating my bears since February 2002. I use the highest quality mohair, joints and German glass eyes to assure that you will have a long lasting heirloom bear.
My bears range from 6 to 30 inches and are all one of a kind. I design my own patterns and create the entire bear with my own hands. I am easily bored, so I am always changing my patterns to give each bear individuality. I make both undressed and dressed bears, my favorites being vintage styled sailors in child's wool uniforms. I also do custom orders using a loved one's uniform and badges/medals or an infant's christening gown.
I pride myself on creating a top quality bear that you will be proud to show to your friends and treasure for years to come. I am very proud and honored to have won a TOBY (Teddy Bear of the Year) in 2004 and also a Golden Teddy nomination the same year.
I can accept credit cards on my website or over the phone, and also offer Paypal as a payment choice. Layaways are also available.
