Teddy Bear Artist Peggy Fleming, The Pleasant Ridge Collection, Des Moines, Iowa


Handmade Art for the Home and Heart

Creating art is like breathing to some of us. The Pleasant Ridge Collection is a world of little mohair teddy bears and their friends, needle-felted creations, hand stitched pieces and other delights. All pieces are designed and made by me, award winning artist Peggy Fleming. I do occasionally offer some pieces that incorporate cross-stitched designs charted by other artists, because I like to cross-stitch, but don't have time to chart my own designs right now. In that case, credit is fully given.

A full-time communication job and volunteer activites don't leave much time for making art, so only a limited number of pieces is available each year

Since I do social media for a living, it's where you will find news of any new pieces I have available or any new projects I am working on. Look for some spun cotton adventures and experiments with different media in doll-making. There's also my blog (link above) which is updated irregularly, but has lots of pictures!
