Oh wow what a busy desk I've had here this week....the work keeps flooding in, my sewing rail has filled and emptied a few times and orders for my Memory bears have also kept me busy. My special offer for 10% off for my Facebook followers has been taken up by many.
So I am quickly going to show you my latest Memory Bears.....
These two were made from silk ties....I love how they've turned out.
The one on the left was made from a pyjama jacket and the one on the right out of a dressing gown.
I so love the fact that each one takes on it's own charachter.
This one was made from a much loved mum's coat that had been hanging in the wardrobe many years....isn't she beautiful? I love that she has given the coat a new lease of life and is now giving a lot of comfort to my customer.
This one came with a very sad story. He's been made out of the pair of job bottoms a young man was found in when he collapsed and died at just 21 years old [cause still not known].
I just know this bear is going to give a lot of comfort to the grieving family so am really chuffed at being able to make it for them.
As you can imagine there hasn't been a lot of spare time for making dolly clothes this week but I have managed to make this little dress....it has 4 layers of net underskirt! [Maybe another you might fancy Jan?]
It still needs a pair of matching leggings to go with it....and of course I will now have to make 2 more for the other girls. :-)
Thats all from me for this week. I have two [possibly three] more Memory bears ordered that are coming today so I will be head down sewing but will do my best to pop over to yours at coffee break times. Thanks for your lovely comments each week.
