Care bears sewing patterns

I wanted to show my care bear cousins patterns with everyone. It started when i came across lionheart on ebay who unfortunately was in such a bidding war that i was not able to buy him. No matter it started a mission since i remember the care bears from my own childhood and while the bears were okay i really liked the cousins! Plus i figured they would be a great way to understanding pattern making on different animals.There are 10 and some took weeks to find while others took no time at all! I don't know yet if ill try to collect all the bears ive had  a hard time figuring out exactly how many their are. Do any of you  collect specific patterns? Id love to hear about any kind of collection youve got and how you got started. Also if you are looking for a specific pattern and would like me to keep an eye out let me know id be glad to help!

  2. I seem to remember the Care Bears too - why not have a go at making them! I'm loving what I'm doing at my shop and blogging about it all at and am so glad I began to make toys again after several years of not doing so.

    Why not call round and have a look-see? We would love to see you there, and perhaps you could Follow us and comment too? Look forward to it.

    1. Hey isobel ive actually run across your etsy shop before and found it awesome! I Love your blog! Im a follower now :)I actually have made the monkey but changed the pattern slightly to work with the fabric i used since it was for an infant, I hadnt even thought of posting it serious DUH moment.
