I got started making bears several years ago to get back into sewing, since I'd not done any since my last sewing class in high school. I would have rather taken wood shop and auto mechanics in high school but my Mom insisted on my learning to sew!
This bear pattern seemed easy enough and the bear has been a favorite toy of many generations. I enjoy shopping for fabric that I think will make bears that will appeal to activities, hobbies, likes--and make a personalized gift for that special someone, as the letters from my satisfied customers can attest to!
My other hobbies are home improvement, stained glass, woodworking, Dr. Who (yes, I'm a Whovian!), Barbie, and flying as I have a private pilots licence.
