Little Scruffs by Jean Grogan
Hello, my name is Jean Grogan and I have been creating miniature bears for the past 9 years. My first and only much loved childhood bear went missing during a house move some 20 years ago. Perhaps it was with him in mind that I began making 'old bears'. I find that each one seems to take on an identity of his/her own and I never tire of making them.
I suppose you could say that my bears never look pristine!! I much prefer the well loved bears full of character.
Along with the traditional bears, I have also designed a doglike bear and 'Fat Head' bears that have been selling really well. Please look in my gallery of bears to see past creations. I make bears 7 days a week and almost in my sleep so there are always new bears going on the site!
All my bears are hand made using the best quality materials including mohair, alpaca, and vintage upholstery velvet . I have become quite obsessed with sourcing out vintage fabrics and love using them to make different bears They are all fully jointed and are weighted with steel shot. Each bear comes with a sewn in label saying Little Scruffs.
