Country Rose Bear for Baby L

My poor new baby niece is sick! She's in the hospital with a serious case of jaundice. Poor child. Poor new parents who had to leave her in the hospital all alone last night! They hope there is a bed available for my sister-in-law to stay tonight. The light treatment should help her get better quickly. I finished the bear for baby L this morning. I could have finished it last night, but I was getting a bit frustrated with it. The rose fabric is gorgeous, but it is horrible to work with. At least for something small anyway. While my last bear was primitive/country, this one is more shabby-chic/country. I hope the new mom likes it. She is much more modern than I am. Of course she won't say outright that she hates it. I'm always a bit intimidated when making something for KD's family because they're not crafty, and I worry that they think I'm just cheap. This bear has some rice inside. It makes a great shelf-sitter, 'cause it has a bigger bum than the other bear. I accidently sewed the ears on inside out, but they look cute how they are, so I wasn't going to change them again. I already had to unstitch them once.

  1. That is so sweet! That fabric is really pretty. I could never do anything like this. I love the name stiched on there.

  3. Hi Jo! That bear is adorable! I would love to receive something like that, but I understand about worrying about it. I know that I would never be able to make something like that, so I think it's so impressive!

    And congratulations on your award!
