In 2001 I made a bear for Miranda from her favorite pink thermal blanket. She named it Pinky. A few years later I ‘remade’ a very well loved Pinky by taking the bear apart and turning the pieces inside out. Pinky went everywhere with Miranda, everywhere~!!
To celebrate Miranda’s 21st in December 2016 her mother asked me to make Pinky #2. She ordered a new thermal blanket and had it mailed to me. I made the new bear and even it’s own blanket.
Looking at the picture it’s hard to believe that the first Pinky was ever a true pink in color but it’s evidence of a treasure of time and precious memories for Miranda. She was moved to tears when she opened the gift bag on her 21st birthday to find a brand new Pinky.
