Army uniform bear ‘Bebe’

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.

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!
