Hand Crafted Teddy Bear Clothing

The teddy bear clothes offered for sale in this section are all hand knitted by my mum!. Mum is always busy knitting for the old bears for sale on my website which led to many requests to purchase her hand crafted teddy bear clothing separately..

Here's a selection of mum's hand knitted teddy bear jumpers, waistcoats and pull-overs for sale. These are mostly for bears 14 - 16 inches in height but I do find many are quite versatile in sizing and will fit slightly larger old bears too. All measurements are shown so you can check a garment will fit your teddy bear.

Ps.. "Barney" my old 15 inch British Chiltern teddy bear is just modelling the clothing to give you an idea of size (sorry he's not for sale!) but lots of antique and vintage teddy bears always for sale on my antique bears page

Doll Supplies - Doll Re-Stringing Service & Supplies

Most antique and vintage jointed dolls were strung together using elastic cords or rubber bands. These are prone to slackening/perishing with age and will often need replacing at some time during a doll's life. Always ensure this is done correctly as incorrect tension can result in unstableness or damage to head and weakening to doll's body openings.

Here at Diane's Dolls UK, I offer a professional restringing service for all antique bisque, composition and hard plastic dolls. Prices start from £15.00 (depending upon your dolls type/size) plus their return journey home. This service includes a freshen up of your doll using professional quality cleaning products and your doll is usually returned home within the week. Please contact me for further details.

If you prefer to re-string your own dolls, I can also help!.. I'm often asked if I can supply the elastic cord I use in my doll re-stringing clinic so here it is!!..

An excellent professional quality elastic cord with multi stranded rubber core encased by strong woven polyester outer sheath. Extremely tough and long lasting, it provides excellent tension for doll re-stringing and has the capability to stretch to 100% plus.

4 sizes of Doll Restringing Elastic

Due to popular demand, I now supply the largest size elastic cord used in my re-stringing clinic. These 4mm and 5mm sizes are superior quality elastic cords, essential strength, durability and tension for re-stringing larger sized antique bisque and hard plastic dolls.
