Our family’s old patchwork bears are so old that they needed patches on their patchwork!
I spent just an hour or so fixing them up before displaying them downstairs in our newly remodeled space.
Even though they are considered ‘unfashionable’ these days, old quilted bears carry many happy
childhood memories with them and those will never go out of style in my opinion.
My oldest girl grabbed this vintage red patchwork bear in a flee market when she was small.
I made the old white patchwork bear from a ripped and discarded quilt. It was formerly a
“wedding ring” pattern quilt. Although there was little of it remaining I hadn’t the heart
just to toss the scraps out without trying to salvage something from them!
