Another craft show project


I found this odd colored teddy bear and thought he'd look awesome with a CQed vest. So I made a pattern and cut the foundations from muslin.

Then I pieced the muslin with fancy fabrics. The hardest part was choosing colors that I liked with this bear. Finally I settled on purples, pinks, and navy blue, with some gold lace overlaying some of the fabrics.

It's not all together yet, but I like the way it's coming so far. The bear is odd, don't you agree? He's sort of purply-pinky tie-dyed, but he's cute, and he might just be the best dressed bear at the fair. I also have a garden variety brown bear, but he may end up in camouflage overalls. We'll see.....

What a great idea for Moms who have loads of stuffed animals that they hate to 'just toss' - dress and sell them! Your choices are perfect!

Janet,
This is going to be *so* cute!! I'll bet you'll sell this in a heart beat. BTW... how much do you want for it. LOL! Very good idea for a craft sale. I know you and Lauri will have a great craft sale.
Hugs, Ingrid ;)
