Lets Make A Teddy!!

The girls in my Saturday class, were discussing how their daughters didnt show any interest in sewing (mine included) so we decided to arrange a mother/daughter sewing day and what better way to tempt them than learning to make a teddy bear!!:

Of course the first decision was which bear to make and it was a difficult choice, they were all so cute. Then we had to chose the fur, now this was fun.....everyone chose something different, from the traditional gold to a soft lilac!! Then it was time for action:

There was lots of talking, lots of laughs but also that important bonding time between mothers and daughters as we worked together!!:

Pauline wanted us to handsew the bears head, which wasnt a favorite with the daughters but they all managed to do a great job!!

The mothers helped out with the machine sewing of the body parts and then it was time to join it all together. Of course the daughters got a lot more done than the mothers:

Maddis bear is the white one........looks like Ive got a fair bit of "catch-up" homework with mine before we head out again to finish them off!!


  1. A great idea! Looks like everyone had a wonderful time and a few more bears were born. *s*

  2. Great idea. I tried a mother/daughter sewing day with Gemma. It didn't go well. She reckons that I sew so she doesn't have to!

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  3. So cute bears you made. Looking forward to see what clohtes you put on.

  4. Looks like fun. I like Maddi's white bear. Hope we see them again when they're finished.

  5. This is a great idea! Looks like you all had a lot of fun!
    A belated Happy Birthday to Maddi!

  6. What a lovely thing to do together.

  7. Ooooh! This looks like a lot of fun!!! What a great idea to get all the mums and daughters together! I bet you girls had a ball! :o) Maddi's teddy is so wonderful! So crisp and pretty in white! And I look forward to seeing yours finished too!

  8. Oh my gosh so cute!!! Love the bears! :) Looks like you had a lot of fun too. :)
