Last week it was all bags, bags and more bags and this week it's bears, bears and yet more bears. I had many pending orders for school Memory bears and decided to give a 10% discount to the first 10 through my door to encourage some to bring their items of clothing before they got caught up in school holidays.
The first one taking up the offer came through my door the very next morning wanting a School Memory cat quickly followed by the next customer who wanted 9 Memory bears making in memory of her mum....they were for 3 Grandsons, 4 Granddaughters and the 2 daughters!!
That of course meant all 10 offers had gone barely before the ink was dry so I then extended the offer to 15 to catch up the school bears....there's only 3 spaces left now!
It was commented that making the same things over and over again would get boring so I have written a step by step blog post [below if you'd like to read it].....really to record the steps I had to take for myself as a reminder of how you make 9 bears from just 5 items of clothing and also get all 9 of them different as requested!!.....Please believe me it was quite a challenge and there is no fear of me ever getting bored. :-)
So my pics today are...
The nine different bears for one customer.
This one was to remember a much loved Grandad.
Amy's three children go to a lovely little country school and little Lulu is my very best advertiser by far. The last day of term the children are allowed to take a favourite toy into school with them and she likes to take the school Memory bear I made for them with her. Of course she loves to proudly tell everyone that her Nanny Annie makes these little bears and this latest bear was the result of her efforts.
The headmistress from the school asked if I could make it for her to keep in school....I have a feeling there may well be more orders on their way now. :-)
That's all from me for today. Please leave me a little comment so I know you've called in and I will do my best to pop over to yours ASAP......Oh and don't forget to check out the post below if you fancy a challenge.
