The Evacuee

My latest creation is The Evacuee. At the commencement of the Second World War, British children living in cities and other vulnerable areas were evacuated to the countryside. School children were often evacuated along with their teachers. My handmade bear, named Florence after my grandma, is dressed as an evacuee schoolgirl complete with her label.
Florence is made from quality German straight hair mohair with English glass eyes and an embroidered nose. She is stuffed with a mix of traditional wood wool and polyester with additional weighting in her tummy. She has a growler.
Florence is beautifully dressed in a lined, grey wool coat which I have made myself. Her label is attached to her coat collar and she carries her gas mask box. A hankerchief has been pinned to her sleeve. (It must have been a very sad experience for parents and children.) She is also wearing a handmade felt green beret.
