Extra time is spent in securing the eyes for durability.
Garments are ironed and interfaced with a fusible stabilizer
for strength, body and ability to better hold shape.
TammyBears are 5-way jointed and measured while standing. Highest quality threads are used to strengthen each stitch. I hand stitch every nose and mouth on all clothing memory bears.
When making the face, it is my hope the bear brings about a smile, and memories filled with love. Just the right look to fill your heart with joy in remembering your loved one.
My life of teddy bears began two years after I lost my
mom to breast cancer. She left behind a life of faith, love,
perseverance, and a plush furry coat. Mama loved the warm,
wooley coat, so when I saw it hanging in the closet two years
later, I knew I wanted something special from it...
I wanted a teddy bear!
I thought I would try to make make my bear, but this would be
a challenge, because not only did I not know how to sew, but I was born without a right hand and and forearm. But by now I was committed to trying to make Mama's bear.
After several attempts, discouraged and frustrated,
I was ready to give up. Days later, remembering what Mama
would have said, and how proud I knew she would be,
I couldn't give it up just yet. Mom always told me I could
do anything I wanted to if I believed I could.
So with those words echoing in my mind...
and my heart, I made my first teddy bear.
Now, with each little bear and dog I make, lives the
faith and love of our Mama, and most importantly,
the belief she instilled in me…
I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. Phil. 4:13
