Rhapsody (15)_edited

Introducing another of my newer creations, 16” Rhapsody.

Rhapsody (9)_edited
She is made from tea stained white mohair and has wool felt paws. I’ve done a little airbrushing around her eyes, ears and paw pads to give her a more realistic appearance.

Rhapsody (7)_editedHer collar is hand crochet and also airbrushed a bit. Her sweet little nose is made from polymer clay that was baked and sanded to make it look a little old.

Rhapsody (21)_edited

She is stuffed with poly pellets and polyester fiberfill so she is squishy and completely lovable.

Currently she is for sale in my Etsy shop.

Hugs from Vicki and Rhapsody!


  1. Love her! She is adorable. Great job on her.

  2. Vicki, Rhapsody is adorable! I love her sweet sweet face and her quizzical little expression. She's wonderful..

  5. So cute! How long does it take you to make your bears? Is that a really long process? You are amazing!

  6. PatC-Thank you for the compliment. I love your dolls, too, you know!

    And my friend, Laura.... it is so nice to hear from you :)

    I appreciate you coming over to my blog Hillary. I love visiting yours, too!

    And Kim, it is nice to meet you and thanks for following my blog. We do have fun here, you know.

    and Angie.... how long to make a bear? I honestly couldn't tell you...hours and hours and hours. And it all depends on how much detail I put into it. One of these days I will actually keep track... but the way it works is that I get sidetracked by all kinds of things here at the house and seldom just get time to steadily work on a bear project. So, the time it takes simply escapes me.

  7. A very sweet bear! I love the tea stained mohair,it gives a nice color.Love that old style!
