A recent request: this customer has a sweet memory of her sister as a child carrying around a stuffed pig. Wouldn’t it be great to make a pig, using her sister’s precious clothing, as a memory-filled keepsake of her sister? We at Love You Sew Memories made a sample pig, and let one of the 2 year old grandkids play with it. His response? he said, “My pig!”, grabbed it, and went everywhere with it!
We recently thought we would try making some small keepsakes. As it turns out, the basic bear looks almost cuter in the 6 to 8 inch size than in the standard Basic Bear size! The additional bonus is the lower price: our mini Basic Bear is only $20, which makes it easier to get several of them for family and friends. We also created a small mouse keepsake, it’s only $4, and is a real little stocking stuffer. Keepsakes this size will travel well, and are easily packed into a carry on size suitcase or even into a pocketbook. As with any of our keepsakes, if the mini Basic Bear or Mouse is for a small child, we need to know so we can embroider eyes rather than using little buttons for eyes.
