Teddy Bears Picnic

This week sweet little Esmerelda is coming on the picnic.

She is another little bear from my designing for magazines days.  I originally made her for Handmade about 15 years ago. She was designed to be very inexpensive to make, as she is made of cotton batting.  I still really love the fabric I chose for her dress and the dear little gold owl charm I found for her necklace.
Its very wet and soggy here in Melbourne so I guess it will be an inside picnic again.
Share a Bear or a Softie
I and many others would love to see who you are bringing on the picnic today.  It can be a bear, a softie, a doll or even a cute little friend on a quilt.
Please put your details into Mr Linky and share in the fun.

 Fabulous Free Patterns
Again I've got some fabulous free patterns to share courtesy of our fantastic fellow bloggers.  A huge thanks to them all.  This week there is an amazing wash mitt Sheep from Jeromina at Paper Plate and Plane.
The sweetest little Donkey from Myra Masuda

 and this adorable little Kidscraft Project from Crafts by Amanda

Can You Help?
 If you are an animal lover please consider supporting the Free The Bears Fund. I do and it makes me feel good to know that I am helping to give the bears in various sanctuaries around the world a safe, peaceful and happy existence.
