Poor Ted! I didn't realise he was at the back of the cupboard with only one eye! I do feel a bit bad about that.
I found poor Ted today as I was doing a spring clean in summer! I made Ted when my son was a young baby, probably about 9 months old - he is now 21. As he was an amazing sleeper during the day (and night), I sewed, cross-stitched, and completed tapestries.
I attended classes and learnt how to do heirloom crazy patchwork and to make a jointed teddy bear.
Here is Ted bit by bit...
He has a bit of a tight lipped look about him as though he is cross! Do you think...? I am sure he moved in this photo!
I can't believe I embroidered on the carnation to highlight the colours. Gee, my boy must have been a great sleeper!
Notice the vintage cameo? My grandfather bought it back from Croatia in the very early 60's for my mother. Ted is covered in lace from my Mums wedding dress, buttons from my Dad's old pyjamas, beads from my Nanna, all sorts really.
Then I got the urge and made some crazy patchwork hearts today with a little embroidery.
Then I made even more, so I have now put them in my ETSY store!
Poor Ted! I will have to find an eye for him and fix him up. He is going on the top shelf from now on.
