These are memory bears that I made for a coworker who lost her mother recently. Her mother left behind three grandchildren, so I made a teed bear for each child out of their grandmother's favorite shirts.

That was a lovely idea of yours to use the grandmother's shirts to make the bears. And they are beautiful bears even without that.  I'm sure they will be loved so much.
What pattern did you use and do you have a link for it?

Those teddies came out so cute.  And the shirt fabric worked out beautifully.

Thanks for the kind words. I lost my mom when I was a little girl and I would've cherished something like this forever. Smiley
