2nd Time Around
I like to upcycle items, giving them a new lease of life. This bear is made from dress that caught my eye because of the sheer beauty and colours in the skirt section and I just knew it would make a stunning bear. I purchased the dress from our local Sue Ryder shop which I like to support by buying from and donating to, as they do such a great job.
Once back home with the dress, I washed it and then proceeded to disassemble it. Then I placed all the pattern pieces and cut them out. Next was piecing them all together and gradually over the course of a couple of days, this sweetheart of a bear appeared. Important info: This bear is not suitable for anyone under the age of 14 as it has NOT been CE tested and cannot be tested due to the fact that I have used second hand, preloved fabric. It is intended to maybe sit in a bedroom on the shelf or maybe a bed etc and not to be played with. Please rest assured though that I have used the same loving care to make this bear as I do making all my other CE tested soft toys.
This is a beautiful teddy bear whose pictures really do not do the material used, justice. It shimmers in the light and is awash with many colours. The facial details are all cut by hand and sewn into place.
Due to the delicacy of the fabric used, please do not submerge the bear in water, please sponge clean only.
Approximate measurements excluding the ears is 34cms.
This bear would make a beautiful gift for someone and the label states what ‘it used to be’.
