Something old, Something new

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
