Mommy n Me craft: Little Bear in a Box
Maressa and I made this little Bea the Bear in a box for a friend's birthday.
Maressa drew the bear with fabric markers on a small piece of white cotton.
We added a tiny bed in a box and a tiny blanket and tiny bunting for decoration.
Bunting is just some washi tape and bakers twine.
This idea was mostly inspired by a drawing she made the day before of all these adorable colorful bears.
Also inspired by this kids art stuffies project and putting bear in a box by this adorable project.
So first I had Maressa draw and color a bear on a piece of fabric.
Now she wanted me to take a picture of her with her picture...lol
Then I put the drawing face down on another piece of white fabric and sewed around the outline of the bear. I didn't want this super detailed so I just went widely around the corners and curves.
I left a hole in the bottom and then pulled the bear right side out and stuffed it.
Then I hand sewed up the bottom hole.
Course after the gift was made, everyone wanted a tiny stuffed friend.
Maressa made 2 bears...one for her one for big sister.
Micah wanted to draw his own and of course made a dog.
Zachary made himself a lizard.
No boxes for their friends yet. I may surprise them with one soon. :)
