Teddies, Piggies and Booties! (Oh My!)

This little teddy bear, made using the basic pattern from The Mother Bear Knitting Project, is a first for me. She is the first bear knit out of 100% all natural cotton, and the first to have a skirt added to the design! I hope she will catch some little girl's eye at The Paper Sparrow and go home to live with her...Partial proceeds from the sale of these bears goes right back to
The Mother Bear Project.

Here she is standing with a few of her new friends. They are part of the guinea pig herd that has moved in at The Paper Sparrow...

Here they are in their little cage, just waiting for their new owners to come and bring them home. The sign on the cage says: Note to Parents: These piggies do not poop or shed. A real low maintenance pet!
They are quite the happy herd, all dressed up with their bows and name tags....

And for the little ones there are a few more pair of my Peek a Booties available too!
(I call them Peek a Booties because of the little hole in the toe ;) If you are out and about today, stop by The Paper Sparrow in downtown Troy and say hi! Hug the teddies and pet the piggies and enjoy the festivities at Riverfest 2009!

Those guinea pigs are so funny in their cage! I cracked up and showed my husband.

What will you do next?

Mare said...

Thanks Laura. The cage full of "piggies" was a big hit at Riverfest this past weekend. Only three little piggies left to find a home! :)

Mare said...

Hi Melissa, it wasn't hard at all to add the skirt, so give it a try. I think i will make a few "naked" teddies too and then make some clothes for them...or maybe a few with short sleeves and short pants.
