Thank you for visiting the buttel bears website. Feel free to browse; you will find a selection of handmade bears, individually designed and made by me, Kathryn Buttel.

I take inspiration from everything around me, particularly different textures and fabrics. As I'm mum a very imaginative son, childhood plays a big part in my ideas. I have recently set up a pinboard on Pinterest where I intend to pin materials and images that spark an idea for a bear.

I usually have several bears on the go at one time so that I can be starting new projects on creative days while continuing with the stitching of existing designs on other days. My poor bears can be headless, armless, earless or noseless for a while before coming together!

If you like anything you see, please let me know by giving buttel bears the thumbs up on facefook or if you would like to buy a bear you can do so through my folksy or etsy shop.
