Teddy Bears Picnic

Looking back through my 2011 photos I came across some photographs of two teddies I made.

The first was an unusual pattern in that it had no head gusset, so just two pieces sewn together so it gives him a slight 'odd' look.

The pattern was given away on a blog I follow.

The fabric used was from an old wool coat that used to belong to my husband's grandmother.

Another teddy that I made that year was 'Moonlight'

He too was made from up-cycled clothing, this time a kind of dressing gown/house coat that also belonged to my husband's grandmother.

I have more handmade teddies somewhere - I used to make a lot of soft toys 'in another life' when I lived in New Zealand when my older son was a baby.  But they must be tucked away in the deepest darkest recesses of the loft somewhere.  They will show up sometime next year as I endeavour to clear and sort said loft!


  1. Those are some lovely teddies that you made!

    Of course because of your title, I'm going to spend the rest of the day humming the teddy bear's picnic song!

    1. Thank you :-) I am having a big sort through so it is fun rediscovering some of these friends.

      Yes that is also the problem with the does seem to stick!
