Thank you so much for stopping to see the little ones.

A little about myself----My name is Ece Hanson and I am absolutely addicted to teddy bears.
They have this incredible power over me and everyone I have met through them. I began designing
my own bears over 12 years ago. I began making
medium size bears at the beginning until I discovered the tiny little bears with hearts bigger than
the universe. My mom always encouraged me to sew and taught everything about hand sewing to me
when I was very young. So when I decided to make the transition from medium size bears to
miniatures was the perfect choice for me. I love to see the transformation from a flat piece of
fabric to a bear with a soul. It takes me about two full days to finish one bear from start to
finish. I love taking my time when I am sewing those tiny stitches, while I am stuffing them and
especially when I am working on their tiny sweet faces.
I pay a lot of attention to detail while I am creating them. I want them to be loved by their
mommies and daddies as well as warm as many hearts as they can from generation to generation.
I canít wait to hear from you.
Lots of Little Bear Hugs,
Ece and all the little ones : )
