More Teddy Bears!

Hey everyone!  Before our big family get-together a couple of weeks ago, I decided I wanted to make Teddy Bears for our two little nieces we had not met yet.  I dug through my fabric stash and came up with four pieces of  fabric that I thought would work.  
I much prefer using at least two different fabrics, if possible, or even more sometimes.

                                   

This one I thought would be sweet for our cutie-pie niece, Avey E (not to be confused with Avey Q or Littlest Miss aka: Busy)!  I had this cute piece of flannel that just made it so cuddly.  See the little heart?  That is one of my first efforts in learning to crochet -- I was so excited!







Just a reminder of what Avey Q's bear looked like!
I have to get more little crocheted hearts made so I can add
them to some previous bears I've made for our "Grands."
 
Greta (she didn't want anyone messing with her cookies that she was saving for dessert.....lol) got this one with the soft blue ticking fabric and sweet little cowgirl print.  Yep, this one has "heart," too!  It's always fun to dig through my button jar for just the right eyes, also!  Sweet little Greta has gorgeous blue eyes -- lots of blue eyes going on around here!

It was so cute when I gave them each their bears, they didn't get them mixed up after that.  My sil said that back at the condo, they were very possessive about "their" bears.  
I guess I haven't met a child yet who doesn't like a Teddy Bear -- no matter how old they are!  
As Martha would say, "Bears are a good thing!"  

On that note, I hope you all have a day filled with "good things!"  Thanks for stopping by!

I know I've said it before, but you are so talented! I love the added detail of the hearts! You're almost inspiring me to learn to sew. Almost. :) My favorite thing is that each one of your bears is unique. Love your fabric choices!

I think hand made gifts are the very best. Your bears are adorable!

Carol, your bears are so pretty and your grandbabies adorable! Thank you for your comment on my porch. Your comments are showing up on my email as non-reply. This has never happened before, so I couldn't email you back and thank you. Enjoy the rest of your week!

What cute bears for those sweet girls, Carol! I used to make bears. Thanks for the reminder! I'm going to go dig out that pattern. I love the crocheted hearts you added.

Thanks so much for visiting! Your bears are just about the cutest things I have ever seen, next to those adorable little girls!

I used to make teddy bears all the time. I wonder if I can find the recipe up in the attic.

Thanks for the inspiration.

So precious! I know they're all proud of their bears. (I still have my Teddy Bear from my childhood--except he's more of a Teddy BARE these days!)

Kadee Willow said...

Ahhhhh.... this post just warms my heart! Those little girls are just too precious and you can see how much they love their new teddy bears! What a lovely mix of fabrics to create such adorable little bears... so perfect!

How sweet, I bet they loved them. I like how you used different fabrics and made them look so scrappy. Thanks for sharing at the Cabin:)
