I Made a Bear....Once!

Years ago I knew a lady who made Teddy Bears.  She said one day, do you want to make a Teddy Bear like mine?  Sure!  (This is about 15 years ago, so I was a lot more eager back then!)

And with her help, I made a lovely Teddy Bear.  And, I have never, and I think I am pretty safe to say, never going to do it again!

Oh, I know, she is sweet and wouldn't it be nice to make some for gifts or even to make some money.  Ladies, in my opinion, no one, and I mean NO ONE would pay me what it would take to make another one!!

So enjoy....the fruits of my labors in Bear Land!!

Cute, cute, cute! I remember that fabric from years back. Isn't it a Debbie Mumm print?

But still so cute. You did a great job.

Well, I think you made such a gorgeous bear that you really won't need to make another ;) She is precious, love her dress and pantaloons but her sweet face is my favorite! Hugs ~ Mary

Oh, Ceekay, the little bear is precious! I love the fluffy fabric you used for the bear itself and all the little clothes are adorable. I kinda know what you mean. I've made lots of stuffed animals and literally burned up a sewing machine trying to sew through some fluffly fabric for a rabbit I was making. Well, I got a new sewing machine! :) Thanks for popping in to see my home tour. I was just so honored.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Ceekay, You did a fantastic job with that sweet bear!!!
the dress is adorable and I know it probably gave you headaches making this...
Can you make me one for a MILLLION dollars? LOL

I can say the same about a china doll! Never again! And it cost me triple what I could have bought one for - ha ha on me!!

Glad you loved the tablecloth - it was only $24 for 120 round! I was so thrilled, I decided to buy instead of rent for the reception- it was cheaper and I got what I wanted!

Oh that is so funny! I've never made a teddybear before. I bet it would be fun if I was a kid, but I don't think so now. LOL! Your bear is cute.

Oh she is adorable!! I can't imagine the work that went into making her...lots of pieces and patience needed, but I think it was well worth it. You did a lovely job and should be quite proud!! I'm so happy you dropped by my party and shared her with us!!
Blessings,
Doni
