Hunny, Haycorns and Thistles by Kristie Bonner


My name is Kristie Bonner and I have been making bears since 1996. In a relatively short time, these little bears have come to take over my life. I specialize in miniatures and with my busy life-style, I have two children, I needed something portable. Miniatures are perfect. Everything I need to work on a bear fits in a little bag that I take everywhere I go. You never know when you are going to get a few minutes to sew.

email My bears range in size from 1 1/2" to a large 4 1/2". The majority of my bears are 3", which is the easiest size to work with. I sew all my bears by hand with right sides together. The pieces are then carefully turned with hemostats. I use upholstery velvets, cashmere, rayon, and mohair as a medium. Black onyx beads are used for the eyes. I generally 4 way string joint the bears and use cotterpins for the heads. In some designs, I use glass pellets in the feet of the bear to help them stand better on their own. The average bear takes anywhere from 5 to 8 hours to complete, but they are a true labor of love.
