I was given this clothing by a friend Craig, who wanted to use his Dad’s old army uniform to create a special keepsake for his Mum
There was a camouflage jacket, a hat, a pair of trousers and two shirts, one of which was complete with Sergeant stripes and a lanyard.
There was also a gorgeous little medal that Craig’s Dad had been presented with for long service. I was so excited about this bear!
I just had to incorporate this lovely vintage label with ‘1965’ at the bottom.
I was also given 3 t shirts to use belonging to Craig’s Mum
The Sergeant stripes and lanyard, its all in the detail!!
The cool label sewn into the inside leg of the bear!
And here he is!! I used the pockets from the shirt on the body of the bear, sewn the medal on and I also resized his hat to fit perfectly!
This husband and wife combo is my favourite bear to date, I love him!!
