Teddy Bear - in Memory of...

The reason I love making memories bear; I love to give the loved ones left behind something to hold on to while they are grieving the loss of their loved one.  I make the memories bears with love and memories!!  I hope that they can feel the love too.  They are so SPECIAL!

Cool Wine Bottle Sweaters

This is a fun and easy way to make a wine bottle sweater.  I use the sleeves of old sweaters.  Use an old wine bottle as a pattern so you know how tall to make the bottle sweater.  I usually cut a little longer than the bottle.  To cut the circle piece for the bottom of the bottle I place it on the old sweater and trace around the bottom of the bottle.  Add 1/4" to the diameter for your seam allowance.  This circle will let you know how much you will have to take in the sleeve so that the circle will sew in with ease.
