Bringing Grandma Grizzly's Teddy Bear Wear into the 21st Century!
When my grandmother decided to stop creating and sewing her own original teddy bear clothes, I thought there goes over 50 years of joy and fulfillment being lost to future generations. After talking to her at great length, she consented to allowing me to continue her work and bring her patterns into the digital age and make them available to a much larger audience of teddy bear lovers and crafters.
At first it seemed a simple process to sort, inventory, scan, update, test construct, then market all of Grandma's hand drawn, original clothes patterns. Then reality struck when we realized there it was going to be much more involved than then we'd originally thought. Many of the patterns had to be completely redrawn to fit the new crop of popular teddy bears and greater range of sizes. Yes, even teddy bears evolve! With over 80 different, published sewing patterns, and a huge file cabinet of plans, partially completed patterns, and ideas yet to be reviewed and updated, our work is just getting started.
Now many of Grandma Grizzly's Teddy Bear Wear patterns are available through ETSY, with many more to follow. Her patterns have been sold to happy teddy bear loving customers in over 16 countries!
