What a beautful thing to be doing. I wish there were pictures attached of her work. It would have been nice to see some of the bears.

So little time, sew much to do...........

What a great idea! I have some gorgeous embroidered fabic left from Katies wedding dress that I wanted me make as a keepsake for her - I would never have thought of making a bear! I was thinking of a cushion cover but that would get too easily grubby - now I am thinking outside of the box...
love and kisses, Jan

One of my co-workers makes these 'memory bears' and had started doing them out of a favorite piece of the deceased's clothing for the family members. I got the idea that I'd love one done for my daughter out of the wedding dress fabric and got her to make one up then I dressed it in a veil and made a sash for it, plus a bouquet. Now she's doing all sorts of bears, not just the original ones. It's a great keepsake, that's for sure.
