Real Teddy Noses for Remembrance Bears

was asked to make three Remembrance Bears recently using two waistcoats.

 The bears were to be wearing mini waistcoats. There wasn't going to be enough fabric from the waistcoats to make the bears out of it so I decided to make fluffy traditional bears. A bit out of my comfort zone.

Anyway, I decided to use a brown fleecy fabric for the bear body, and the waistcoat fabric for the paw pads and feet.

A different nose was needed for these bears, so I attempted to sew the traditional noses instead of the way I normally do them. The fleece is much more forgiving, so it would hide any stray stitches.

I was very pleased with the result and thought that these type of noses worked really well with this type of bear and fabric.

Now for the mini waistcoats, bow ties and mini specs!

As these were Remembrance bears, made from clothing from a loved one who has passed away, I was important to use as much fabric from the waistcoat as possible.

So, the paws and feet and bow tie were made from one waistcoat and the other was used to make the three mini waistcoats.

Here are the finished bears.

I am really pleased with how these Remembrance bears have turned out, and I loved sewing their real noses too.

Remembrance bears really can be made out of anything, even if you don't have much left, new fabric can be added, like these bears, to create something you can treasure always.
