Recycled T-Shirt Bears

When the cold winter days force me to stay inside, I try to get caught up on my sewing projects.

My Sunday School group, the Austin/Barger class, has a Relay for Life team to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.  All the money raised is used locally to help cancer patients.  Silent auctions have been successful for us in the past.

These are my current Works-In-Progress, with a little help from my SIL Charlotte, the bear queen.  All these bears are made from t-shirts; three from the Relay for Life event last year, an Auburn and UNA t-shirt.  The bears will get a ribbon around their neck and maybe some more embellishment later.

Last Friday night, there was a Woodmont Women gathering for fun and fellowship.  To get a head start on the Relay for Life event scheduled for May, we had several items for a silent auction.  My donation was an Alabama bear and Auburn bear.  We raised almost a thousand dollars on all the items, so we are off to a good start this year.

All of these bears will be auctioned off in May.  I would love to see my little buddies go to a good home.  Maybe yours?
