|Tale: Bear discovered a pattern for making
stuffed bears out of an old shirt, and decided to make one for fun out of an old work
shirt. As time went on, folks began requesting their own bears made out of shirts
that formerly belonged to a loved one, such as a grandfather, father, or son. The
personalization of using a favorite shirt belonging to the missing loved one made the
significance of the bear even more special, and serves as a great comfort to those
who no longer have their loved one with them. Each bear has a tale to tell, and thus
the name, Shirt-Tale Bears.
|Description: Bear's Shirt-Tale
Bears are each hand-made by Bear herself, using your favorite adult-size
button-up or snap-up shirt as a covering fabric. The sleeve length makes no
difference, but the fabric should be of a fabric other than a knit, such as cotton, cotton
blend, rayon blend, or polyester blend. Email Bear to ask about using other fabrics.
Some ladies dresses have worked as well. Other than the shirt
or dress, each bear is constructed with all new materials, including
fiber fill, button or felt eyes (your choice), and felt nose. The manufacturer's tag
of the shirt can be attached to the back of the bear, or left off (your choice).
There are 3 different sizes of bears available, 18", 20", and 22".
All three sizes are the same price. One bear can be made using fabric from multiple shirts or dresses (body from one shirt; head, arms,
and legs from other shirts, etc).
