Traditional and original handstitched miniature and small bears using vintage textiles and threads.
Welcome to Little Teds, a world of unique and beautifully designed hand-stitched collectors bears. My name is Suzanne Carss and I’m the creative talent behind Little Teds. I’ve had a lifelong interest in art and textiles and have been designing and making teddy bears for more than 23 years. Born in the beautiful North East of England in historic County Durham, the village of Norton has been my home for more than 30 years.
Created from a wide variety of quality textiles both vintage and modern, my inspiration is drawn from an enduring passion for classic teddy bears and all things miniature. Little Teds isn’t just about bears. I also love the challenge of designing other fabulous creatures, from herds of tiny Ultrasuede elephants to magical dragons and other mythical creatures.
I joined the wonderful Hugglets Festivals when Sebastian and the Team took over and have exhibited at Kensington since 2018. It’s always a lovely experience connecting with other teddy bear artists and meeting up with enthusiastic collectors. I can’t wait until we’re all back together again in London.
Meanwhile, I’m delighted to be part of the latest Hugglets Online Festival. Enjoy the show!
