Hello friends,

I had been given many nice Christmas gifts but there’s a particular gift that I can’t forget.

It is a mini felt teddy bear handmade for me by my high school friend. At the time neither one of us really knew anything about sewing. Her first teddy bear wasn’t perfect, it had uneven stitches and crooked neck. However I was so thrilled to get such a special gift, and I loved it so much because of the time she spent making on little bear just for me! I have kept her little felt bear in a special drawer for over twenty years, it has a magical power that drags me back to my high school days and makes me think about all the things that I left behind.

I hope you share something meaningful this Christmas rather than any product that we rush out and buy at the shops to exchange in a hurry.

  1. Hi Minki,
    I LOVE the teddy bear story! That is so sweet and makes me think back to my childhood of precious little treasures that my sewing friend made for me but have disappeared over the years, kind of sad. Your wee little pin cushions are so cute and perfect! I love the colors of felt that you have used.
    I hope you have a fabulous day sweet lady!

      Hi Kathleen,
      I have always wished for a sewing friend but none of my friends were interested in making things until I met Kristin. I am very grateful about that and of course my online friends too!!

  2. Love the wonderful things that you show. Thank you
