Handmade Sweater Bears!








Look at these adorable faces!


Melanie's new sweater bears are just flying out of her Etsy Shop!
The are made from upcycled wool, lambswool, and cashmere sweaters.
She even has a new listing for only $10 you can send her one of your old sweaters that you no longer wear and she will make it into a custom keepsake bear for you!
You can see in their expressions how much fun Melanie has creating each one! I want them all!

I can say first hand how wonderful these bears are...I now own 4 of them...yes, four...When my daughter saw how sweet they are, she placed an order too! They are quality, handmade toys, great for children (and adults ;) handmade with love. (and that little cream colored bear in the last photograph looks like one of mine. He is made of 100% cashmere, and soft as a cloud....Perfect for a little one, or me!)

cute bears! I liked Emmitt's new hat as well. My boss got one as a souvenir and Coco borrowed it for halloween last year. Coco looked cute with it!

Those little baby bears are too adorable! They look like one big happy family! Loved their expressions and can just feel the love they have inside of them (because you can see they were made with love). And what a great idea to bring new life to sweaters! You and Melanie have such wonderful talent to share with the world. Your passing the love around. That's what its all about.
love
