Memory bears, growing up bear – ‘Emily’

When an old friend Tracy saw my bears on Facebook she just knew she had to have one….. or two….. or three!!

Tracy arrived with a huge bag of clothing which included outfits that her family had worn at special times in their lives.

The first ‘Mellor’ bear I made was ‘Emily’

Emily was to be a ‘growing up bear’ made from Tracy’s daughter’s Christening gown, a little corduroy baby dress, a bridesmaids dress and a school blazer.  The blazer was significant as Emily is leaving school later this year.

I used the school logo on the foot pad and also used bow details on the paws.

I also used the lace from the Christening gown to trim ‘Emily’ bear with.

I used the letter beads to personalise it.

Emily was the fanciest bear I had made to date and had a lovely vintage feel about her.  Now onto Mellor bear number two ‘Ruby’
