“Gamma make me a bear?”

“Gamma make me a bear?”

The other day, my phone rang and, when I answered it, a small voice said “Gamma make me bear?” It was my 4-year-old granddaughter. So, what is a grandma who makes bears supposed to do but spend the first free Saturday she has, making a bear. I think this one is about as tall as she is too. 🙂

Carrie Street contacted me with an urgent problem. Here is the note she sent to me with pieces of teddy bear:

“We spoke on the phone. My niece had a bear made from her great grandmother’s clothing that was torn apart by her dog. Anything you can do with the fabric/pieces we have sent you would be wonderful. Also, when we spoke on the phone to include this note of our conversation and you would expedite our orer. Thank you so much for your help!”

The bear’s body was torn pretty badly. He was missing a head and there where holes in all of the arms and legs.

I had to do some guess work about what he may have originally looked like because Carrie did not have a picture of him. I did send her a group of pictures of different styles of bear head and she was able to tell me which one was most like the original.

Madison sent us a shirt long with this note:
“The bear is being made for my aunt and stepmom. The shirt belonged to her son who passed away in an accident unexpectedly. This is my wedding gift to them so their son can be part of their special day.”

Madison was also kind enough to send this note once she received it: “I just wanted to let you know we received our bear and we absolutely LOVE it! I can’t wait to give it to my in laws. They’re going to be so happy. Thank you so much!”

Christine Stanley sent me her fur bear that had gotten damaged. She sent this note as well: “Thank you so much for repairing my bear! I’ve had him in my closet. He needs to be given to my son. He was a gift from my mother and I couldn’t part with him at the time. I used to sit next to my grandma in church when she wore this fur coat.”
The bear was missing a face and had some patches of fur that needed replacing. I was able to give him a new face and patch him up for the next generation to love.

All the Christmas Packages for 2021 are officially in the mail! Thanks goes out to a group of women in a sewing network that I’m part of for stepping in and helping to stuff and close teddy bears.
I wish everyone a super Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May your holidays be spent in the loving presence of family and friends.
