If you have been following me on social media this month, you have noticed I have been participating in 3 events! One of the events is a special exclusive pattern event called Summer Exclusives curated by Fiona at Cosy Rosie UK.
I am so excited that I have been chosen to release an amazing and fun pattern for you this summer! I am so blessed to be a part of this event! Today is my day finally!
When I think of summer, I think of the beach and the ocean. I think of the ocean because I live in the Pacific Northwest in the beautiful state of WA. My family and I live on a beautiful peninsula surrounded by water and mountains. We live about two to three hours from the Pacific Ocean. My husband and I went for a few days for anniversary. We are planning another trip next month with the kids for a couple of days.
When it was time to decide on what type of pattern for summer exclusives, I knew it had to be something about the beach with a few add-ons. I have been wanting to design teddy bears. This is our first teddy bear we are releasing! She is dressed to go to the beach. She comes with a small beach ball to make as well as a beach bucket.
I really enjoyed designing this bear especially the dress and accessories. I loved using different stitch combinations, and including my favorite stitch the shell stitch. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much I enjoyed designing it!
