Momma's been tryin' to figgur out what to do with her un-PC furs. (She got one -a Chinese Raccoon coat (whimper) fur her 18th birthday from her grandmother.) She inherited a few more from her grandma later - an ermine stole, a fox wrap and a sable coat. And then... she found this site and contacted Liane, the Fairy Godmother, who makes "memory" bears. Momma sent her furses off to Liane. A month or two later, several gorgeous bears arrived in a box, each wrapped in a bootiful fabric bag with a ribbon. Momma wanted to give family members a Teddy Bear in memory of her wonderful grandmother. She started by meeting two of her grandchildren at their school!
They are the most softest, prettiest Teddy Bears we all ever saw. I think you can see that there are some pretty big smiles worn by the adoptees - thank you so much, Liane - what talent you have! C. is pretty happy, alright! And that bear will be furry happy too! Next day, we visited Momma's youngest two grandkids, E. and B. There were eight fur Teddy Bears left!
E. is working hard to choose which furry Baby she'll take fur herself and which her sissie should have as well!
Here is a picture of the Babies they adopted and below are the choices they had to choose from! We still have some stops to make for our Bear adoptions! It's wonderful to have found someone to help us reuse these coats - Liane has apparently made "memory" bears and other animals (bunnies) from especially loved shirts, denims and so on. If you have any fabrics you have a particular fondness for, you can definitely recycle them as a... bear?? Have a wonderful weekend!
