Memory Bear

Memory Bear by Claire Sears

Finally got around to making up a Memory Bear, using the uniform from my daughter’s old primary school. I had the idea to do this since she was in Year 6, last year, but it took me some time to find the right pattern. I was in the process of trying to work out a pattern when I came across the designs by Sew Lovely Keepsakes on Etsy.

So, instead I opted to buy the gift pack pattern so that I could concentrate on making the bear.

The memory bears, and other memory items are available on commission. Please do contact me if you would like to find out more and place an order.

It was a really enjoyable project.


Amigurumi Cat by Claire Sears

I am in the process of making up patterns for some amigurumi plushies. The first had to be a cat! (My daughter’s favourite).

The idea is to have the basic body pattern, adding various features and choice of colours to create the different animals.

Experiment Notes:
  • This one is knitted in DK held double on 3.75mm needles.
  • Ears, tail are just single strand of DK.
  • Fairly happy with the prototype, however, I might try doing again working flat. I worked in the round for this, but the jog in the stripes showed up (even with slipping the stitch).
