My name is Irina Shapnevskaya. I'm 48 years old. I'm from Belarus. I love to be creative. Creating Teddy Bears is one of my Hobbies. I also sew dolls, like to embroider, crochet. Know how to draw oil paintings and sometimes even engaged in filting))). I love to learn something new and interesting. Before the bears, there were dolls.But one day at an exhibition of handmade products, I picked up a Teddy Bear! This is unforgettable! My delight was comparable to that of a child who was given a super toy to hold . So I decided to sew my first bear.Yes, now I understand that I made a lot of mistakes when creating it, but it was the first one and brought me to the world of Teddy-a country with its own history, wonderful craftsmen and loyal friends. I hope that you will like my Bears and someone will become a friend.
