This is not a memory bear. I have a stash of recycled sweaters and lace that I chose from to make this bear for a friend. She received a promotion and was transferred to a distant city. It was hard for her to leave what was familiar and all the people that love her.
The bear is a symbol of something new. It is made from a brown recycled knit sweater overlaid with lace from a knit shirt. The collar is one of the ribbed cuffs, I added the crocheting. Both fabrics were, at one time, brand new. They lived out their journey serving in the area of their value and worth. Then one day they took a new path and became something new, again. Revelation 21:5
