Football Shirt Keepsake Bear – Man City & Ireland Combo!

This has to be the brightest and most cheerful bear yet! Marie had already seen one of my bears in the flesh and this convinced her to have a football shirt bear made for her husband for his birthday.

The old gold coloured Man City away shirt perfectly complimented the green Ireland shirt. We also used a headband worn by his daughter for Irish dancing for the detail on the paws.

The family were going to Ireland for a holiday over Easter and to celebrate his birthday, so I ensured that the bear was ready in time to take it along,

I always pick out important details when I am cutting the bears out, this all takes time but I think it’s worth it!

 I finished it off with an a ribbon in the Ireland flag colours, which was perfect!
This was a really fun bear to do, I really enjoyed seeing the transformation from old forgotten footy shirts into a gorgeous unique keepsake bear, that can be displayed proudly!
