Last summer, Marie, a member of our extended family (through marriage and love) died.
I asked her daughter for one of Marie’s sweaters so I could upcycle it to make little bears for Marie’s close kin with it.
I unraveled the sleeves of the sweater and used the Comfort Bear pattern LINK to pattern
It’s taken awhile, because, I think that I needed to design the Comfort Bears first.
I was so pleased when I had an ‘AHA!’ that I could use the Comfort Bear pattern to make the Memory Bears for Marie’s daughter and her partner, her son and grandson and her grandson’s Mum.
They’ll be able to cuddle a little of their Mum and Grandma whenever they need a small bit of comfort…..
I am finding the Comfort Bears to be very inspiring… They have many aspects, and more keep being revealed.
Tiny bears, made with love. ❤
