I'm thrilled to let you know that my Dandy Lion has won an Industry's Choice TOBY award in the category of miniature friends! His head and tail are made from that wonderful Tissval fur fabric. He stands nicely alone at a whopping 4 inches under that swell top hat!! Thanks to Teddy Bear and Friends magazine for these awards which mean so much to all of us bear (and friends) makers. Voting for the Public's Choice Awards will be later in the year.
