Lisa's Memorial Bears!

Lisa Schultheis from New Jersey has a wonderful idea! She makes bears from sport jackets or dresses. She made a bear using the dress her mother wore to her brother's wedding and gave it to him the Christmas after their mother passed away. What a sweet idea! Lisa sells them for about $25 on her Esty store: earthluv. This bear is about 18" tall. Lovable, don't you think?

What a cute idea! We recently pulled out one of my husband's nice suits only to realize the months got to it. BIG bummer. This would be a way cute way to repurpose it though!

Oh, too bad about the suit. Maybe this would be a good idea to make bears or small pillows. Or even put them into a crazy quilt with some neckties and buttons etc.
