LTCCB #40 Memory Bear

It's November 1st and time for another challenge at the Love To Craft Challenge Blog! As always, the theme is Anything Goes. We encourage you to create!

This month I made a memory bear for my son and DIL or should I say, my granddaughter. She's due any time and I knew I needed to make this for her. My dad passed away in 2013 and will never meet his first great granddaughter.

I'll be honest, it was tough. It took close to two months to convince myself to cut into his pajamas. But then I just took a deep breath and cut. I did a search in Pinterest that led me to PA Country Crafts.  This is a pretty basic sewing project and includes a pattern. The overall size is approximately 8" tall. Of course if you want to make it bigger, you can enlarge the pattern.

My mom will cringe when she sees the hack job I did with my hand sewing, but it's in the back so it'll be ok, right?

Here's a photo of the bear with the tag I placed on it for the gift. My parents are deaf and that's why I put the ASL I Love You sign on it.
Now it's your turn. Make a project - any project - and link it to the LTCCB before the end of the month. Have fun!

  3. What an adorable project that surely brought tears to everyone's eyes. Might even be a bit of yours that fell onto it as you were creating? The ASL image is the prefect touch to the sweet sentiment on the tag.


Thanks for visiting. I appreciate your comments. I love sharing my projects with you and hope to encourage you to create things on your own. Thanks again!
