Sorry for your loss. The bears are precious. I've been asked to do a couple of lap size memory quilts for a friend of my daughter's. Her dad passed away in 2012 and she wanted them for herself and her mom. Maybe I can do something like this to go with the quilts. Thanks for sharing.

First of all, I am very sorry for your loss. The holidays must have been very hard for you. My most sincere condolences to you.
that is such a great idea. I wish I was ambitious enough to make one for my girlfriend when her husband passed away two years ago.

Thank you for all your kind words. My girls love the bears. My son wants one for Olivia. I didn't think she would know what it was about, but he said she would some day.
The pattern Nancy used is just a simple bear pattern. I could have made them, but Nancy has made about 500 and has the system down to a quick procedure.

They're so nice. Just got done making a second set ( my aunt in may and uncle in nov) of memorial bears. I only had a shirt to work with so i made minis, 4". Those little arms and legs took forever to stuff. And yo yos with a button in the middle, from down the front of the p.j. shirt. Came out cute.
