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’
