upcycled sweater bear.

Sorry for the delay in posting! I was in china last week – but heres something I made before I left…

I made this stuffed bear using this pattern I bought on etsy. I made it to give to a friend at her baby shower. I used old sweaters for the fabric. I was reluctant to give it because its far from perfect, (ummmm….lopsided ears!)  but hoping that she will think its the thought that counts.

I finally got around to making some cafe curtains for my little kitchen window. I used milo’s old crib sheet for the fabric, so that makes me happy that I found a good way to repurpose something so special. I used this tutorial as a rough guide, and the rings and rod are from target. This really didn’t take long to accomplish at all, especially because the fabric has little crosses on it, so I was able to use those as a guide when I hemmed them.  Curtains sure are hard to photograph!
