Special Bear 'Pilgrim'

  • Please meet fundraising bear "Pilgrim" Designed & handmade by me Rachel Summersby of Wee Beary Tails. I hope you like him, he is a special bear I have created to help raise money for the Pilgrims Hospices. Nige & in a weeks time will be walking the Pilgrims Way from London back to Canterbury.100 miles and we have a maximum of four days to reach home. On our way we want to try to raise some money for the amazing Pilgrims Hospice. They are truly incredible, helping people facing incurable illness to live well in every moment. We popped in at Canterbury last week & it doesn't feel like a hospital, but like a home from home, a relaxed space to be. 100% of little Pilgrim's adopting fee will be donated to the Pilgrims Hospices via our fundraising page.

    If you would like to help us support them please visit our page and here you can make a donation, any donation helps, however big or small: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/walkingtheway19 

    Little Pilgrim measures approx 6" tall when he is standing and 4" when sitting - due to his design he does prefer to sit!

    He has been created from wavy blue tones batik mohair - chosen as it is in the Pilgrims Hospice blue colours, matching blue cashmere fabric paw pads and inner ears. Fully jointed with cotter pin joints and has a secure wobble joint for his head, he is weighted with steel shot in his body, all his joints move freely making him very poseable. 

    He also has a sewn in woven ribbon tag in his back, black glass eyes, tones of blue perle cotton thread nose with sparkly blue highlights. Black perle cotton thread smiley mouth & eyebrow detail, he has a needle sculpted face. He wears a blue satin ribbon tied in a bow around his neck and also a silvertone scallop shell pendant around his neck. The scallop shell is said to be a metaphor, its lines representing the different routes pilgrims travel from all over the world, all walking trails leading to one point.

    Pilgrim will arrive with his own signed swing tag label, he is a collectors item therefore he is not suitable for children under 14 years of age.~ NOT A TOY ~ If you would like to see more photos or have any questions or comments please email me, thank you for looking!
