Keepsake Teddy Bears

I started making keepsake teddy several years ago, my neighbors Grandpa had passed away and she wanted bears made out of the overalls that he had worn. They turned out so cute, I think that had to be at least over twenty years ago, and I know they still all have the bears and cherish them so much.
Over the years I have probably made over 300 bears, they have been made out of all kinds of fabrics, denim, old quilts, t-shirts, sweatshirts, chenille bedspreads, you name it I think I have made them. Each bear has it's own personality. I always use the buttons or tags on the items to add to the bears. There are never two that are just alike, that is what makes them so special. The last four that I just made are made out of old sweatshirts, I used designs from each shirt to make the bear come alive. When I first got the sweatshirts I told my husband I don't have much to work with, but I am so pleased at how they turned out.
