I will introduce everyone to the process to use to make these teddy bears. All supplies are donated and on hand. I have fabric cutting scissors, pins, pattern pieces, trays, Poly-Fil stuffing, cottons and flannels. I will show volunteers how fabric is trimmed and batched into trays of 4 bears. Then volunteers will learn how to cut out the teddy bear pieces using the Simplicity 8155 pattern. I will show volunteers how to pin the pattern pieces to the fabric and how to cut it out. Volunteers will learn how to pin, also called basting. This prepares the pieces for sewing. If interested I will then show volunteers how to sew the bear together. I will bring my sewing machine to show how to sew the bears. I will teach how to stuff an empty bear, hand stitch it closed and choose clothing for the bear. Photography is the fun part, taking pictures with a bear that you helped make! It would be an honor for me to invited you into my work of making and donating teddy bears for traumatized children. I will give a tour of our new website and shown the various ways to donate via our Amazon wish list or through Pay Pal.
I run this volunteer group to make and donate Teddybears to traumatized children in San Joaquin county, CA. I teach you how to cut out the pattern pieces, pin, sew, stuff and dress the bears. I've been sewing since I was a teenager, over 25 years. After our family experienced a crime, our family was touched by the kindness of others who had made a handmade quilt. This moved me to give back to other family's experiencing hurt. I made and donated 46 bears in 2017, our family's story hit the news and with help I made and donated over 200 bears in 2018. In 2019 I have already made and donated over 150 bears. I currently serve two local organizations: The J. D. Kortzeborn Child Advocacy Center in French Camp and Victim Witness at the Stockton Courthouse. Join us today!
