I made my first bear when my son was about 4 years old (about 35 years ago) and the next one when my son and daughter-in-law told me that I was going to be a new grandma! The first bear I made was about 2 feet tall and made of navy blue corduroy. I now make them out of recycled fabrics which include men's discarded suits, dresses, and, on one occasion, I made a memory bear and matching quilt from a little girls crib bedding.
I've made two others since then and it's becoming and obsession!
I'm happy to have found this website and hope that it will inspire and incentivize me to make many more. I'll post pictures whenever I complete one!
Glad to be a new member!

Welcome to Teddy Talk, Judy! I especially appreciate the memory blanket. Giving comfort is what teddies are best at.
Welcome to Teddy Talk, Judith, from a fellow Texan. Love your memory quilt and bear and look forward to seeing your new creations.
Hi Judith and a very warm welcome to TT!
The memory blanket and bear are so beautiful and I can't wait to see more of your work.
Hello Judith and welcome to TT That's exactly how I started making bears for a new baby in the family and I haven't stopped for since! Memory bears are always so special and Becky is right bears give so much comfort. Your bear is terrific and look forward to seeing your next
