When I first walked into Carol's studio this glass of buttons with a spool of red on top caught my eye! Hmmm...I wonder what we're going to be doing?
Then Carol explained the project! She had a big bag full of the cutest stuffed bears and wanted to make vests and bowties for them before giving them to the kids! After all, bears like to show off their new duds, too! Being the very creative person she is, Carol designed this cute little vest for each bear! The vest is made from fleece which she had in stash. She also had this cute fabric in stash, so she decided each vest needed a couple of pockets for the bears to fill them up with nuts and berries! And of course the buttons finish off the vest quite nicely! Carol sewed the vests while I stitched the pockets and buttons on them!
Here is one of the bears in his birthday suit. He looks pretty sad and probably a little cold, too!
Here he is all dress up and ready to hunt for nuts and berries in style! Carol already had the bowties made, so all that was left was to dress each bear and show them off!
Here is the whole gang! Blonde bear's vest was still in the making - a pretty blue vest to contrast with his unique personality! Remember that old song that starts "If you go out in the woods tonight, you won't believe your eyes..."
