Memory Bear Made From T shirts & A Hat

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Claire gave me this clothing to make into a bear for a wedding present.  The clothing held special memories of a trip to New York and The Christie, fundraising t shirt was also significant to the happy couple.

When I was given this clothing, I wasn’t quite sure how the bear would turn out, the colours were quite dark and I had never worked with anything like the novelty foam hat before!

I cut the pieces out carefully to ensure that the ‘NEW YORK’ logo ran up the right arm and down the left!

I cut the logo from The Christie T shirt for on the body, I used the text ‘Happy New Year 2011’ down the right leg, and picked out bright orange for the ears!

I thine finished the bear with couple’s names and wedding date, with the letter beads.
