Handmade Christmas Bear Cushions

In between making products for Christmas sales....like these soy tealights for example,

I've found a little time to make Christmas Bear cushions. They come 4 different bears in a panel.

I just loved the vibrant happy Christmas colours.

I sewed them into cushions and tied up little bows and sewed them on the ribbon pictures on the pattern...... This one is a Christmas plaid ribbon ...


that is the same fabric as the back of the pillows....


This one has a wired ribbon that I already had that goes perfectly...

I added on a red button and a fancy gold button...

I think they would look cute if I used some of that sparkly fabric paint that comes in a tube and wrote Merry Christmas on the bear's bib.

These are going to be little Christmas warming gifts for our children for their homes. The little ones will like them I'm sure.

I'll bring one to my girlfriend next weekend when we visit for the American Thanksgiving...

Geez its hard to concentrate on the work part of my creations with projects like this...Judi xoxo

JUDY!!! WHEW...I made it over! Oh, work has been tough this year with 50 kids. We had parent conferences on THURSDAY NIGHT with no break. I have been behind on my visits, but I just had to come by to see you and thank you for your visit. OOOOO those bears are so darn cute. Don't you wish you could just create and blog? teeeeheeee! I HAVE TO CREATE...I am a teacher, and it is a wonderful field to plant seeds of creativity, but the administrative part is more draining than working with the kids. HAVE A GREAT WEEK! The kids are on our Thanksgiving break now, no school next week, but we teachers do have to report in for a morning meeting followed by MORE conferences, NON-stop from 12:30pmm to 5:30! Then ANOTHER teacher workshop on Tuesday. But Wed.through Friday is OURS and I am beside myself!

KEEP ON CRAFTING JUDI! Pillows are so fun to make....fondly, Anita
