Memory Bear / Teddy Bear

I took some time today to make a teddy bear. I had a new pattern and wanted to give it a try. It’s been a long time since I made any stuffed animals and thought this would be a fun project. Sure enough – it was fun!

I didn’t have any fur fabric on hand but I did have an old sweater. So I cut it apart into usable pieces like this:

Then cut out the bear pieces and sewed it together. Look how cute this is!

He’s soft and cuddly, not over stuffed. And sits nicely.

I just used an old sweater I had, but if this had been a special piece of clothing from someone who has passed away, it would be a Memory Bear. What a nice way to remember someone dear to you.

Have a great day!
