Thank you for visiting! I hope you'll enjoy browsing my site.

Here at Potbelly Bears you'll find sweet, soft, stuffed things; usually teddy bears, but sometimes pin cushions, dolls, or other textile treasures that squish and comfort and charm, and are crafted from warm, woolly fabrics -- my favorite kind.

Everything I create is 100% original, made from the highest quality materials I can source, built to the most exacting of standards, and designed to last for generations. I do my very best.
