I felt sure that I had seen this bear type in one of my reference books but no - it must be because he reminds me of one of the Steiff Teddy Baby from the 1930's BUT the ears are too low down on yours and the nose stitching is vertical on the Steiffs (they also re issued some similar in the 1950's). He also reminds me of some of the Hermann & Co bears of the 1950/60's but he doesn't have the bent paws? Try googling antique /vintage standing teddy bear?
Well whoever made him he's lovely and is yours now bear_original bear_wub

I had a similar thing happen to me when I first started and discovered there was an established and wonderful artist working under the name of Padgate bears (I'm Padfield bears BTW) also in the North of England and I thought OH NO people might confuse the name as it is so similar. As I was the newbe and his bears were much more accomplished than mine I decided it only fair to email him and ask if he was concerned or unhappy about my name. He was very charming about it and as our bears are of a different style wasn't worried and said there is room enough for us all in this bear world. I know you are in more of a pickle here as your name is the same but why don't you contact the other Stawbeary designs and see how the land lays? They may not even still be trading or have even changed their name as I can't find any googling on them? Good luck  :thumbsup:

Found this: is this the one you meant Strawberry not Strawbeary??

-1995 no longer trading
or Strawbeary Shye Bears??

-I think the 'Shye' bit makes enough of a distinction from 'Designs' myself but its your call.

Hi Leikela welcome to TT  bear_flower What a great first fluffy you have made. Don't worry about the shading it will come with practice. Always test on a bit of scrap first but I expect that you thought of this after you got over excited and dived straight in. It is amazing how colours can change (frustratingly) when applied to fur. Acrylic fur takes colour better than natural ones like mohair and alpaca as they are basically plastic which is why a lot of artists use it but the natural fibres are not impossible to colour if not a little more resistant.. Here is a link from the library from last year  https://www.teddy-talk.com/viewtopic.php?id=54032
or https://www.teddy-talk.com/viewtopic.php?id=53803 that might help. Good luck bear_original
