Hello everyone! This is the first stuffed animal I’ve ever made, it was fun! This memorial bear is for a friend of mine.
The owner of this bear was really good friends with a little girl who was taken from this world way too soon. The aunt of the girl gave Paige one of her old t-shirts, which is what this bear is made from.
One of the girls’ symbols is peace, so the charm on the bears necklace says peace. I really think this bear is super adorable! If I were to make another bear, I really want to find a pattern that has the belly, ears, and paws as contrasting fabric.
I used the Simplicity 2613 pattern that is shown above. I used the cat pattern and changed the ears and tail so that it would resemble a bear. I think I may make the elephant, I have a girlfriend who LOVES elephants.
What do you all think?
