Love this


This sampler bear is made from calico, machine embroidered with colourful sampler motifs, alphabets and an old sampler verse. His ears and paws are made from yellow gingham. He has a blue ribbon around his neck. He has back plastic safety eyes and a black nose. He stuffed with polyester stuffing, and is button jointed. This bear is approximately 33cm from head to foot. As he is button jointed he is for decorative purposes only.


The original Sampler Bear was made, not from an old sampler, but from an attempt to create a new sampler on my embroidery machine. I have cross-stitched samplers in the past for various occasions but now I find I don't have the same time for a project of that size. I still love samplers, so I attempted to get the look in less time using my embroidery machine. The result wasn't exactly what I wanted, I couldn't quite get the various sections to line up. But rather than waste it, I decided to treat it as material and make something from it. I thought if I cut up the sections then I would no longer be able to see where it didn't quite match up. The result was my first sampler bear. I loved the result so much that I started to embroider material with the sole purpose of making more sampler bears.
