Another beautiful bear for my next little girl. My other two girls loved theirs so much I had to have one for my baby due next month

Good bear, kid loves it
I love that....can you make me one?
That is how this wonderful whirlwind started. I started making myself a purse from my husbands uniform that he had worn through the knees. I couldn't bring myself to throw away so much good material. I completed my purse and used it at our FRG meeting the next day and had so many, "Wow, where did you get that?" comments that a light bulb went off in my heart. I am a stay at home mom of active little boys so sewing is my outlet when my husband is gone out to sea for long periods of time. I started my signature cuddle bear by accident as well. I wanted to make something for my eldest son, who is autistic, to feel close to his dad during the up coming deployment. He carries around a bunny to comfort him so I thought I would make him a bear from the remaining uniform material. He loved it. I then thought if he loves it then other children and adults could benefit from the same comfort qualities he found in his bear. Today I am a budding shop and I also have my creations in our local base submarine shop. It has been truly a blessing.
