The Owner of Patchy Bears
Wants to Give Away a Cuddly Bear
She Made From Quilt Scraps --
to One Lucky Love Where You Live Visitor.

DONNA MARIE HAS WON! 
Thank you all for participating!!

We're the only ones offering this GiveAway . . . which is Terrific news for you!!
It means if you live in the lower 48 states, you can easily enter. And, best of all, your odds of winning are really good!

Gretchen Hugen, owner of Patchy Bears, will give the winner the choice of ONE of the two Christmas bears shown below:





Who doesn't like a cute little bear? They're for all ages!  And because they're one-of-a-kind, they are heirloom perfect. Get ready to hand down this fellow from one generation to another!  Each are 18 inches tall and can be hand washed should they get smudged from too many hugs.

Gretchen began Patchy Bears almost 22 years ago, when she was pregnant with her daughter. You can learn more about Patchy Bears and Gretchen by visiting her Web site here.

She also makes custom bears for those who want to preserve a memory by turning old dresses or other materials into a keepsake bear. What a great idea for your great grandmother's handmade quilts! Or your child's first dress or big-boy pants.

A READER SHARES HIS WREATH
I love it when someone is inspired by something on this page (in this case it was the post on Holiday Wreaths, which you can read here). My friend -- and artist -- Carlos created this wreath below from champagne corks. He says he did it in one afternoon! Fabulous! It's a good reason to pop open some bubbly now! All for a creative cause....



A close up of the corks:



Cheers!

I would love to win the bear with the plaid ribbon. I collect bears. I love the idea of making them out of memory fabric.

I think the pink quilt bear would be a great gift for my niece. Something she will keep far longer than the video games and Barbie junk I've been buying her. I'll see if I win, then make a purchase.

I shared this giveaway with all my friends. They are wondering what is up with me and pillows and bears. I like what I like.

Love the pink patchy bear. My daughters would love them, too. The Christmas bear is pretty, too. These would make great family heirlooms to pass from generation to generation!

If I was to make my own bear, I would use old tshirts from college that bring back memories.

I went to the site and the bears are adorable. I like the pink bear and the Christmas bear on the sits. I'm a quilter so I would use quilted fabric and make a small quilt to match. I make a quilt I always do it around a theme, like rhymes with rhymes quilt, Boyd's bears fabric and I gave her a Boyd;s bear,Guess I have to much time on my hands.
