I have been sewing teddy bears for almost 20 years. My creativity comes through during the process of putting one together. I thoroughly enjoy making teddy bears for others, especially those who need a special hug.
My Memory bears are made from grandma's old fur coat, or grandpa's favorite bathrobe, coat, or flannel shirt. Favorite blankets, sweatshirts, or t-shirts also make good memory bears. These bears are jointed or unjointed. Boo-BooBears are bears I normally donate to children who have a small boo-boo, or a big boo-boo. A band aid is placed on the bear where the boo-boo is for the child. These are usually bears without moveable legs and arms. My own written poem is included with the bear.
I have created many real and fake fur teddy bears. These bears are decorated accordingly depending on the length of the fur, condition of the fur, and size. Let me know if you like Victorian style, a bow, or a man's necktie on your bear. Mohair bears are my true hobby. They are the most expensive to make because of the fur. So I don't make too many of them.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. All the bears are made with love. "My intention is not to get rich, but to enrich your life with joy."
