Recently I had the privilege of making a sweater teddy bear for Sharon of Gentlestitches, both shown in the photo below. Sharon sent a well-loved carousel-horse-print sweater all the way from Australia to Kansas, USA and wrote such a lovely post when her bear (now named Eddie!) arrived home. Here’s to bloggy friends near and far! ♥ P.S. Click here and here for more bear love.
We LOVE Eddie the Pillows A La Mode Bear. My young son said “Eddie should sit on the living room couch so everyone can see him, rather than in a bedroom.” Even though he is a Teddy Bear he has a “pillow” look about him too. Lol! Your “pillow making” is subtly shining through. 🙂
Hugs from Sharon and Eddie. ❤
Yay! This post makes me smile…a collaboration between of my favorite blog buddies in the world! Eddie is adorable…and so is Sharon.
Thank you, Sharon and Lauren! Hugs, Katherine
That’s so cool! 🙂
Thank you, Danielle! Our family should all go to Australia to meet Sharon in person someday! 🙂
I agree! 😀
ps. first stop, we will hire minivan and go see the penguins on Phillip Island. ❤
What a wonderful way to recycle sweaters. The bears are so cute. 🙂
Thank you, E.C.! I’m working on another one now made from a friend’s daughter’s special sweater. 🙂
How nice to have such a cute bear to cuddle! (I guess one could cuddle a sweater, but this little bear is so much better!) You are so creative and generous. Enjoy your creative day!
What a sweet comment, Vickie! Thank you! Hugs, Katherine
Have a wonderful weekend Katherine! Hugs back at you!
What a terrific story! I can “bearly” contain my happiness for you both. Have you ever thought of playing “Where In The World Is Eddie-Bear?” Best wishes always.
What a great idea! I should have taken him around my city for a photo shoot before sending him home! 🙂
Lovely story, all way from USA to Australia 🙂
Thank you! So happy to have friends all around the world . . . including you! 🙂
Thank you read your blog make me happy 🙂
Wonderful story! I love this idea so much!
Thank you, Danielle! I’m working on another one now from a friend’s daughter’s special sweater. 🙂
