Memories for Keeps ..."Willie Bear"
Here is a a creation that I was commissioned to help with. A dear friend's sister wanted a personal keepsake to give to her daughter for her upcoming birthday. This cute bear has a shirt made from the shirt of a departed loved one. the importance of this shirt was one that there needed to be a pocket to hold this man's eye glasses & that the shirt be made to resemble one that he wore on most days due to his job. I will say that I was quite pleased with how it came out & was very happy that with all that I tried, I was blessed with very few problems & an end result that I was proud of. Some things just seem to fall into place and this project felt very right almost from the onset. Now, I just pray that the young woman who receives "Willie Bear" will have wonderful memories envelope her each time she embraces this cute teddy bear. I hope that she will find peace within it's meaning. What a fun & thoughtful gift her mother commissioned. Something to think about for future gifts of sympathy & thoughtfulness.
