Teddy was given to Miss E as a baby and has hardly left her side since.
This photo was taken back in 2009
Teddy has become one of the family. You can see that she has aged a bit since the 2009 photo was taken and eventually, her red gingham dress was beyond repair. I knitted her a new dress, which I made up as I went along and now looks like this
I had no idea Miss E had lovingly saved this relic.
Since then I have made a few garments for Teddy’s wardrobe.
Including this jacket from the book ‘Knitted Pirates, Princesses, Witches, Wizards and Fairies’ by Annette Hefford
which in turn inspired me to experiment with the pattern and scale it up for babies and toddlers (with permission from the publishers).
One day about 4 years ago Teddy was LOST – Miss E was distraught, the whole family were traumatised, she was lost for over 24 hours, it was awful – we searched high and low thinking of anywhere and everywhere Teddy could have gone – what on earth were we going to do. …
At last Teddy was found amongst other toys, her colours so muted that we had not seen her, even though we had looked there before.
I decided that Teddy should have some bight clothes so that she would never be hidden from us like that again. I knitted these
But Teddy continues to favour more muted colours and only wears these dresses during the Strictly Come Dancing season. Thankfully she has never gone missing again.
Here she is with her friends and her collection of clothes minus a pale yellow cullotte outfit that is in the wash……. we hope….. we couldn’t find it ……. it might be ….
Do you have any photos that fit the ‘lost’ theme?
We’d love to see them, just leave a link in the Comments, to join our Photo Challenge.
