I Ain't Got Much

But this little fake fur bear to show for my efforts today. This is bearrit from Carol's Zoo. I started making this bears as dog toys several years ago. When I realized I could purchase replacement squeakers and fake fur for much less than I could buy a soft toy at the pet store.
Because it takes me about 45 minutes to make one, and it only take Beau 5 minutes to kill one, I don't make bears for my guys too often any more, but when I make them as gifts for other - Lucy just sits and drools, waiting to get her chops on it.
I also managed to walk the dogs, vacuum the floors, work 6 rounds on my baby pinwheel blanket, make another dog toy and cut out 4 swing bags. Tomorrow plans to be much of the same - dog walking and sewing :) Good times!

  1. This is a good idea, considering Sophia can destroy a stuffie in about five minutes also. Yes, I said Sophia - the little dog. Abby doesn't rip them apart unless Sophia does. I even have this pattern in my stash along with faux fur scraps. Where do you find the squeakers?
