    My quilting buddy just made a teddy bear with an old fur coat… she had issues during the process but her bear turned out very adorable. She’s planning to make more and I’m sure each one will be sweeter!

    A friend recently lost her father and asked me to make memory bears for her grandchildren from his shirts. Se had distinct memories of his singing special songs to each of the children, and even had photos of him singing to each child. Barbara assigned shirts for each bear based on those photos and also asked me to embroider a line or two from the songs on the bears… a special project, to be sure! I posted a photo with my blog url, but it’s not on my blog…

    No I have not done this. Sounds wonderful. I wish you luck, it will turn out adorable.
    My grandmother took a lot of the clothes the five of us kids grew out of and made square patch quilts for us. All by hand. They are precious to have. The same with your bear will be. I look forward to watching it come together. Have a great week.

    I have made a quilt from baby clothes but not a bear. Sounds cute though! Love that hippo fabric!

    I haven’t made a memory bear though it is a wonderful gift. Sewing is such a great way to be creative and try new things. I look forward to seeing the finished product!

    What an interesting project. I have never made or seen a memory bear. I have been asked to make a memory quilt but have not received the clothing yet. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.

    There is always something new and fascinating to learn about here. From scout quilts to memory bears (which I have no clu about!)… Awaiting with excitement!

    I haven’t done that, so I can’t give you any advice…sorry. What a sweet idea. I can think of several situations in which this would be very meaningful.
