Friendship Bear

As I started this project, I had the idea rolling around in my head about a little bear in a shadow box...well, as the creative process took hold and the little bear was created-she just didn't quite fit into the shadow box.

Now, I was presented with the challenge of redesigning the bear or thinking out-side the (shadow) box and letting the bear be what she was...cute and on her own, out in the open in all her precious little glory...that was it and the Friendship Bear was created...
Next- She needed a little soft pillow to sit on.
She is petite at 5-inches tall and needed something to ground her...a box- but not in it but on it! Yes...she was coming along...

Her box had to be special...specially made for her- with words of Friendship enveloping the box...and of course a heart...Friend


I thought she would be a wonderful present to make and give to a special friend, you can make her a place her in her little box with a friendship story, a poem, a wee little hand-made card and tie it with a fabulous bow!

You are...my Friend, my companion,
through good times and bad
my friend, my buddy,
through happy and sad, beside me you stand,
beside me you walk,
you're there to listen,
you're there to talk, with happiness, with smiles,
I know you'll be there, throughout the years!
You are...my Friend.

I just love her- right now she is sitting on top of my worktable- just sweet and happy!

I will be teaching her as a class this coming weekend- there will be more Friendship Bear photos to come in the next ROotie Monthly E-News or contact info. about the pattern.

  1. Lovely little bear and a great friend to anyone that would receive one. Your shadow box will have to be filled with something else. Can't wait to see what you come up with
