Creating Teddy Bears and Art since 2007.

About Me

Welcome to Woollybuttbears

I'm Di and I have always enjoyed creating things using various forms of art and craft.
I am inspired by nature and by the environment around me.

The natural bush around Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia was my inspiration during my childhood and I often recall climbing the Darwin Woollybutt Eucalyptus trees that grew on our rural property. (Hence the name Woollybuttbears). 

The tree had beautiful big bright orange flowers with large gumnuts, a woolly trunk down the bottom and white bark at its top.  


Whilst traveling in Europe I learnt the art of needlefelting from an artist friend and became inspired by the felted teddy bears sitting around her home. 


Woollybuttbears was born in 2007. 

 Over the years I have practiced, failed at designs, made strange creatures, experimented and succeeded sometimes. I have never had any formal lessons in bear making and learnt from magazines and a couple of patterns purchased many moons ago. I wish I could sew better as I would love to make cute little bear outfits, maybe in the future.

But, for now my bear making and indeed my life journey continues :0)  .......
