Memory Shirt and Bear

19 Feb

At the end of January, Jared’s uncle Brian suddenly passed away.  I wanted to make something for Jared’s ten year old cousin out of his uncle Brian’s shirts.  They gave me two of his shirts.

I made the first shirt into an outfit for a little bear.  Brian was a huge Chicago cubs fan =)

The second shirt I made into a nightgown for her to sleep in at night.  I cut off the sleeves and finished them off and also took in the sides so it would fit her better.

I hope these items help her remember how much her dad loved her and when she gets sad she can give the bear a little hug.

    What a thoughtful, beautiful thing to do. I’m sure that little bear will mean a lot to Brian’s daughter. 🙂
