British Bears.

My grandaughters both have birthdays at the end of this month Edith on the 29th of June and Freya on the 1st of July.
As they live in London and this is a memorable year for the Capital I decided to make them a keepsake of  2012.


I found this wonderful fabric during my stay in Winchester, just the thing for a couple of patriotic bears.



 Here is                           '' Hooray, I,m ready for the Olympics Bear'',

he has a muslin bow and hessian feet. I've made the legs and arms movable so he can sit or stand.


and this is                         ''Woo Hoo, I love a Jubilee Party Bear'',

 they are all ready to be packed up and sent through Royal Mail to arrive in time for a party.

Hope you all enjoy your week.
