I don't have much time to be creative these days...too busy working full-time and playing with those grandbabies!! But, I was going through some photo files on my lap-top today and I found some pictures of teddies I dressed and accessorized for a home craft show a few years ago. I wish I'd have been better about taking pictures of things I made. I must have dressed hundreds of teddies during the eight years I had my gift shop...not to mention the ones I've made the past few years for shows. I love dressing up teddies of all sizes.
Some of my favorites were these teddies in chairs. Full size, people chairs that I found at an auction for $1.00 each!! The teddies are attached to the chairs along with flowers, doilies, tea cups, dolls and ornaments. They each had twinkle lights woven thorough the garland and they looked so sweet when they were lit. I made six and sold all but one ~ it lives at my house now!
I also really enjoyed making these little "themed" teddies. They were great gifts for teachers, moms and grandmas. The best sellers were the little teddies with telephones...they held signs that said ~ "Need a hug? Dial 1-800-grandma". Teddies with apples and teapots & cups were popular too. I still have quite a few little naked teddies in my craft room. I might have to find some time to dress them!
