This week I spent time making Memory Bears from the shirts of a neighbor’s family member who passed away.
I tried to incorporate those things which made the shirts unique like embroidered patches and special tags. When possible, I use the shirt’s buttons as the bears’ eyes.
Fortunately I was almost done before a certain stinkymonster noticed what I was doing and wanted to play with the bears.
If you are looking for a gift for that special man in your life, consider this classic tweed cardigan so you can show your love for him for years to come.
This cardigan and many other fine gifts are available in my shop.
I LOVE THE IDEA OF THE MEMORY BEARS
I do Memory Quilts, too! 💕
Not surprisingly, I didn’t know about these things. It’s strikes me as a very nice and thoughtful thing to do. As you say, the key seems to be storing them above the height that a certain Cairn terrier can leap.
It is also very important in phrases such as, “Don’t pick the grapes below the level of the dog”. 🍇
Those are so cute! What a great idea…
Aw, thanks! ❤️
They are awesome
Thanks! I hope the little girls that will receive the bears have good memories of Papa.
What a wonderful idea! They are so cool! Every child should have a teddy bear to cuddle. 🙂
Hey, Toby: Maybe every dog should, too! 😉 😛
(((HUGS))), PATS and RUBS!!! 🙂
If by “cuddle” you mean “dismember”, then yes!
Sure, Toby, that works, too! 😉 😀 😛
I think my niece is going to do this – her dad just passed and she’s having a very hard time
Oh my goodness, I am so sorry. Are you and she near each other that you can offer her support? Sending hugs to you both.
Not physically close but I’m there for her.
