Here is the portrait of Christine Child, Australian artist
who is one of my favourite creator of teddy bears.

Thank you very much, Christine, for giving me the opportunity to write this article.

My name is Christine Child and I design and create my bears under the name of Boot Button Bears.

I have a particular love of older bears, and I just think that their dear little souls would have so many stories of comfort to tell. I think that this is why I love to recreate the antique and vintage style bears.

I design and handmake all my bears and will often dress them in little vintage outfits or decorate them with some vintage accessories.

I only use the best quality materials to make my bears and all seams are double stitched to ensure a lifetime of hugs and cuddles.

I started making bears in the year 2000, when my young daughter wanted me to make her a bear.

I was so captivated by the process that I decided to research more into this craft, and I then took several courses with some wonderful bear artists, who were so generous in sharing their knowledge.

I make about 80 to 100 bears a year, and as each is an individual, that is about my limit.

I sell my bears from my website, www.bootbuttonbears.com and also on Ebay.

It has been such a joy meeting other bear artists and also the wonderful collectors.

It is so heartening to discuss bears with people who share my passion.

I hope to be able to keep creating my bears for a long time to come, and to continue to try and perfect the recreation of the wonderful old-timers.
