Smiles , and Littles, and Bears, Oh My

Grandpa Bears

My Love adored our grandchildren.

One of his last wishes was that they never forget him.

While I don’t believe anyone will let that happen, I wanted something concrete to give each of them for the holidays that would be a reminder of Grandpa.

Thanks to a connection through my sister-by-choice Wendi, Bridgette at The Crafty Butrfly and her bears was my perfect unaware angel. Every bear was cut out from three shirts. The unused fabric was shredded then used to stuff each bear. I added the heart buttons and laminated tags.

As you can see from the smiles and hugging going on, the bears will be loved. Hopefully they will be conversation starters so Grandpa’s stories will be passed down to those he loved with all his heart.

Oh my, bears

Hugged by littles

With big smiles

Makes this grandma’s heart

overflow with love.
