The bear

Last month Beth had a bear giveaway. I was a lucky winner. I spent almost a week picking out the fabric, a green sparkly felt. Paige's bear arrived yesterday.

"What is it, Mommy?"


"IT'S MY BEAR!!"



And just a few minutes later:


Paige had no idea that a bear was on it's way. I didn't tell her so it could be a full surprise. Her bear has replaced Pappy by her pillow at night. I had to pry him out of her hands to take her to daycare this morning. She drags him around by the ear or the neck.

Beth, thank you. The bear is a huge success here.

Oh, my gosh, that is so awesome! I'm just thrilled that she likes the bear so much. Has she named him (or her)?

LOVE the picture of them cuddling on the couch.

Thank you so much for posting this; I have a big, cheesy smile on my face now!

How cool is that! I might have to drag out the sewing machine and find me a bear pattern.

Monica--Here's the one I used--very easy: http://teddybearsden.com/teddy-bears_free-pattern-instructions.html

I downloaded the pattern image and enlarged it so that the image itself was 15 inches tall. (The bear itself is smaller than that, probably about 12 inches.)

Beth- She hasn't named her yet. Paige has decided the bear is a girl though. She's not that big on naming dolls. We've named her stuffed animals from Build a Bear & she will call them what we tell her their name is. She just now named a baby doll she's had for 2 years. When the bear finally gets a name I'll let you know.
