Deedee Sonnenburg– Look What I Did to Something We Bought at the St. James Bazaar

Deedee Sonnenburg– Look What I Did to Something We Bought at the St. James Bazaar


There have been some stories coming out from the St. James Bazaar that was held in November. First Stephen Giles found an old family painting (Hallmark Moments Around Us This Week) and yesterday I get this note from Deedee Sonnenburg. Look what she did to recycle a teddy bear? So cute.

Remember the bear Reese and I bought from the St. James Bazzar, the one with the funny mouth? It turns out he is a puppet! Bonus!! We have names him James, and here after I crocheted him an outfit, are the before and after shots, I even recycled his scarf! Deedee Sonnenburg




What to do with a well loved Teddy Bear?     


Here is one of my faves.. Just enough


Upcycle or recycle old stuffed animals or Beanie Babies with a children's chair craft from Kelly Behun on "The Martha Stewart Show." Kinda creepy.

This is too much Martha Stewart Shame on you!


Love this idea.. Take the plush out and make a rug.
