today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

i love craft-y books! and when i saw that amy from nanacompany had a book coming out i was beyond excited! i couldn't wait and just HAD to get an advanced copy from nanacompany etsy shop (it officially comes out in april!)

there are sooo many adorable projects, but i knew i had to make the cutest bear cushion first! and i couldn't just make one! i think my next project will be the jam-jar pincushion.

see? i told you they were cute! i first started making a super-girly pretty one (using the same fabrics as my hexies) and in the middle of making it, my bundle of hello, bear! arrived, so how could i not make a bear cushion with bear fabric, perfect right?

it is such a fun pattern to make and we all know how much i love to make cushions they are just soo cute! i also had so much fun taking pictures today, i love that the better weather is coming (i'm one of those people that likes to talk about the weather!)
oh and how lovely are my three bird pictures by ashleigh bickerstaff! my desk will be getting its own blog post soon

i have listed the super pretty teddy cushion in my etsy shop
you can find the listing here

  3. So cute!! I had forgotten that her book was coming out. I'm so glad you reminded me!

  4. In the drawing of Berryman, the bear was drawn as a fierce animal where the bear had just killed a hunting dog. But later, Berryman redrew the bear and he made it a cuddly cub.Jättinalle
