What is inside this little matchbox case with it's miniature luggage labels and leather handles?
Bonjour ! It's Pierre the bear, complete with little felt beret and spotted bandana.
His little case is lined with some French children's rhymes from an old 1920s encyclopedia.
And here he is, out and about in France, seeking directions to the nearest patisserie for some pain au chocolat.
This well travelled bear will be visiting my Etsy shop soon.


  1. Very cool! My daughter loves making miniature things, especially for model horses. You might want to check out her blog @

  2. oh my goodness, doda......he is TOO CUTE for words!!!! i love him!!! :))

    p.s. i saw your question about the pan pastels on my blog.....yes, i spray a fixative on the page when i'm done. it's very stinky, but it keeps the pastels from smearing!

  3. I have one daughter, and possibly her Mum, who would love this!!

  4. Hi,
    I just love you tiny bears. Do you have a pattern for them that you would share with me? I would love to make one for my friend who is a bear lover!
    Thanks so much,
