Wedding Dress Keepsake Bears

Happy New Bear Making Year!

Happy New Year
2020

Wow, 2020, time certainly does fly. I started my bear making journey in 2012, eight years ago, and it's been an amazing learning curve. I have built my little business on my own, around my growing children. I have now decided to expand the bears and share my knowledge and teach you all how to make your own bears and quilts. Depending on demand, I will hold day workshops at my home (for now) with up to three/four students. Materials and lunch/refreshments will all be included, all you need to bring along are the clothes your would like to use.

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.
