Tina Jensen is a Danish tiny teddy bears creator.
 

As I appreciate her work, I felt like writing this article and I thank her very much to have giving me this opportunity.

I am 47 years old and live with my husband in a very small village half an hours drive from Copenhagen (the capital).
I have two grown up children now living on their own, wich giveme more time for my bearmaking.

My passion for bears started in 2000 where I was visiting a fair with bears, dolls and miniature looking for some small stuff for my dollhouse.

My daughter was with me when she saw all those bears displayed.
She so much wanted one, so I bought a kit for a very large bear (about 17 inch) so I could make her one.

After the first one (which came out okay), I thought that I would make her another one, just a bit smaller. Then I was hooked.

I visited the next bear fair in Denmark and saw how some of the artist had made some very tiny ones. I decided, if they could, I could too.

Then I started to make my bears smaller and smaller until the size they have today. Mostly between 3 inch and up till 6 inch.

I create and design all my bears and they are all sewn by hand.
Most of my bears are made of mohair, but somethimes I like to try different materials as syntetic or vintage rayon.

I started selling my bears at bear fairs and through my own website in 2001.

Since then my bears have found new homes all over the world. I now participate in several online shows through the year and in Bear Fairs in the UK as well.

This year I´m going to travel to the Teddy Bear Artist Event in Stratford-Upon-Avon, UK in June and The Hugglets Fair in London in September.
