Tiny New People

There recently have been two new additions to my circle of friends. My brother-in-law Giulio and his wife Toni had little Georgia, which means I'm a real life aunt now. Unfortunately, they live in Vancouver, so it will be some time till I can give my little niece a cuddle.


Then my friend Tina and her partner Jörn had their tiny, Linus. And they live in Germany. So no little baby hugs for me here, either. Meh.


I made them each a little soft teddy bear from old fabric that I had. They are sewn by hand, as my sewing machine's foot control is broken at the moment. I filled them with old (washed!) cut up pantyhose and stitched them each a sleepy face. You could probably use buttons for eyes if you made something for older kids over three, but there should be nothing that could end up in a baby's mouth by accident on toys for really little 'uns.

  1. that photo of little linus almost makes me want another baby! (almost...) not to mention tiny, tiny Georgia. It's good to be an aunt. Your teddy bears are so sweet, a perfect gift. aimee
