Here we are another week closer to that light at the end of the tunnel....I hope. It's been another busy, bear filled week for me here at Sewing by Annie's so that's what I have to show you today.
It never fails to surprise me how different each of my bears are depending on what they are made from.
This one was made from a gentleman's favourite cord trousers and shirt.
I was then brought a bag full of football shirts, shorts and jacket that were grown out of. I was to make a Memory bear first as requested and then make a cover for the 18" cushion my customer bought to go in her son's bedroom.
The bear went together like a dream but it was a work of art finding enough fabric to make the cushion cover out of....and in the middle of making it my one sewing machine started playing up so I sent it to the naughty corner and used one of my other machines to finish it. My customer was thrilled to bits with it and after a weekend in the naughty corner my machine was really sorry and is playing nicely again this week.
This is the latest bear I've made. Very different again and I have to say one of my favourites. It's made from a Mum's blouse who sadly died of Covid pneumonia in hospital so I'm hoping it will bring her daughter comfort and be a focus for her grief as she was unable to be with her in hospital.
It's in my favourite colours and went together like a dream.
This one brings my Memory bear numbers now up to 435 :-)
Finally I thought I'd make you chuckle. You will all be aware I make a lot of Memory bears of course. To make these bears I use a lot of stuffing and here is my latest delivery....10kg!!
It fills two huge boxes and inside each it's compressed into five 1kg bags so if I let it all out at once it would probably fill my sewing room. :-)
On that note I will leave you chuckling....if it all escapes please come looking for me :-)
