After giving Sir Bear to my niece for Christmas, we both decided she needed a much larger wardrobe. The skies were grey, and we were a bit bored after Christmas, which resulted in endless hours of stitching fun. The coat above, which makes the bear look like a Russian princess, was made by my niece's mom, Deborah. Her sewing skills truly amaze me, and only a detail shot of her perfect stitches will help you appreciate her work:
We made SO many accessories in one afternoon:
I really love the little purse I made her, and the combination of red flannel and dark brown ribbon and felt:
I was so impressed with my niece's handiwork - she was so patient and diligent with her needle and thread, making the red heart shoes, a red fringe scarf with a pre-cut snowflake, and embellishing another red coat with thread and ribbon!
I'm so glad we set aside some craft time together, it was the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon... :)
