Making a Wedding Dress Keepsake Bear - Part One
Wedding dress keepsake bears are a lovely way to use your wedding dress and have something to remind you of your special day. I really love making them as they are always very different, according to the dress I am using.
Some are very plain so you need to use the best bits of the dress.
Some are heavily beaded, which means the bear can take twice as long to make due to the beading having to be un picked and hand sewn back on.
Some dresses are very lacy, which means they gave to be backed and lined so it reinforces the fabric.
