I’ve wanted a soft cuddly teddy bear made out of an old quilt for a long time. I’ve spent a lot of time looking for one on Etsy but the few I’ve found were out of my price range.
Well, I had an old quilt and a book of teddy bear patterns. But I had to have the courage to CUT the old quilt.
I don’t know why but it was very difficult to cut it even though it was raggedy and not even good enough to fold and display. (it was in a zipper bag under my bed) So I talked it over with a friend and this is what she said, “That old quilt would have more life as a teddy bear than being stored in a bag. JUST DO IT! Save all the little pieces that are left and I'm sure you'll find new uses for them too.” Sherry from Back 2 Vintage
So I listened…and I CUT!
And now I’m so glad I did!
Meet my cuddly snuggly teddy bear made out of a quilt I’ve had all of my life.
(he has 2 hearts around his neck now)
