Baby Bears

You know what happens after June weddings? Eventually, anyway. These are done in cross stitch & I love to do them for a baby gift. The bears are good for boys or girls. Once you know the sex, you can select a frame based on the sex or the color of the baby’s room. I’ve done a few more than I need to post here!

And, it makes a nice piece to carry on a trip. I can stitch everything except the name and date. Not that I get that much stitched on a trip. But, I don’t need to work with a frame or hoop for it because I’m able to control the tension just holding it. The colors are limited and the pattern is relatively easy. And, I can use “Threader and Cutter” from AC Moore (http://www.acmoore.com/p-24941-needle-threader-and-cutter-2pkg.aspx). It works great for floss. Anything heavier & the threader part breaks easily. There is a tiny portion of a blade in the plastic for cutter and it is inexpensive in case I lose it. I don’t fly often (prefer driving) but never had a problem with it when I have taken it along on a plane. It’s nice to have one in progress or even ready, if possible, so when the baby is born, all I have to do is stitch the name, frame it, & visit the mother and newborn with a personalized baby gift!

omgosh…I used to work for this company when it was located in KC. Did not know this company was still in business. Where did you get this?

A blast from the past!! Well, I’ve had it a long time – been reusing the pattern over and over again. Since the kit is dated 1985 & I was living in Philadelphia, I no doubt bought it from AC Moore but I can’t be sure.
