Earlier this week I gave you a sneak peak of a project I was working on. Today I am so glad to be able to show you the finished products.
This special bear is for a baby shower I am attending tonight. The bear is Simplicity pattern 5461 and made from the wedding dress of the Mommy-to-be. It is a surprise for her, something she wanted to have done but is not expecting it now. I've been working under cover with her Mom. The Mommy-to-be does not read my blog so I do believe we are safe!
I have to tell you, I did have a moment when I made the first cut into the beautiful wedding dress. I thought I might be sick, actually. There is enough fabric left over for a few more bears for future wee little ones.
I finished my gift for her also. She does not know if she is having a boy or a girl so I had to keep it pretty neutral.
Of course now that the sweater and hat are done, the weather here is expected to be in the low 80's as we head into summer. There's always air conditioning, right?
I love the shape of this little hat. Can't wait to see the darling baby that will wear it. So much fun!
