We had such fun on the last LIVE call of our FREE Teddy LIVE SEW-ALONG today.
The fourth LIVE CALL was all about pattern hacks for Keepsake Bears ~>
I wanted to END BIG so… I planned LOTS of wonderful things for us to make with the basic Calico Bear Signature Bear Pattern – ALL beginning with ‘W’
Wabbit (as in Bunny!)
and we had a Wonderful surprise…
Our first ”W-thing’ we sewed was some angel wings for our keepsake Bears. A lot of my customers that sew lovely keepsakes with my Calico Bear Pattern have told me that they have added WINGS to make an angel bear as a keepsake when a child or baby has passed away. It’s a way to bring a little bit of comfort at such sad time.
*** I have put together a PDF file which I will send out to everyone who joined us on the SEW-ALONG with the FREE Wing Pattern.
The next ”W-thing’ we talked about was WEIGHTING. We discussed how to make a weighted keepsake toy. Weighting can be added to the exact birth weight or just to give the toy some added weight or just to help your toy sit up better.
The next “W” thing we discussed was a teddy bear WAIST COAT pattern! Lots of the Club Members have been asking me to design a waist coat for Calico so we did this LIVE!!!! Talk about putting me on the spot! LOL 🙂
Our last ”W-thing’! Our much anticipated Calico Bear Bunny Pattern Hack! A pattern hack isn’t a NEW pattern, it’s just an adaptation of the Calico Bear Pattern. We made some extra long bunny ears from dimple Cuddle fabric and added a pom-pom for a tail…
AND… there you have it – a bunny pattern!
The other EXCITING news is you can have the pattern for free as I will be sending out the FREE Keepsake Bunny Pattern pieces (as an ADD-ON) PDF pattern!!!
AND the SURPRISE? Winners!
