One of my cousins is pregnant and the baby shower is in a week. I debated what to do for her and finally decided on a Teddy Bear. I posted about this pattern previously but this time, my fabric selection is a bit different. From my favorite, the Goodwill, I got a denim curtain panel for 1.49. The fabric is really soft and was plenty to make two bears, one for another friend due later this year. Instead of just using the obvious 'front' of the fabric, I reversed some of it. It has a great two-toned effect. For an extra bit of interest I added a few patches on the bear. My cousin is waiting to find out if she is having a boy or girl, so with the denim it work for either. I still need to add a ribbon around the neck, but haven't found anything I like yet. Most likely it will be red or blue. Hope she likes it!
I accomplished a years worth of creativity on a budget. Now this blog is just for all of my creative outlets. My creativity involves a lot of craft projects, artwork and a few odds and ends.
