Welcome to the World Cadence!

My sister-in-law Meghan had her baby girl on Friday! Cadence Brooke was born at 2:39 PM weighing 7 lbs and 14 oz. She is the first girl grandbaby in our generation and I am so excited to finally have a niece. I’m also insanely jealous of the crazy number of adorable dresses, headbands and lacy socks I know Meghan has in her nursery. Girl clothes are just so much CUTER.

Since I am full of good intentions but terrible at execution, Cadence’s baby gift didn’t make it home to her family before she did, but should be there soon! Until then, just show Cadence these pictures of her new friend. Computer screens are cuddly, right?

Teddy Bear pattern by Debbie Bliss from the book Simply Baby

Knit with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmarino yarn - machine washable but still SUPER soft. I made and sewed on the little bow to make her special.

I hid the felt heart inside the bear before I stuffed it. If I was more talented I would have embroidered it but Sharpie on felt worked too.

Evan's (former zombie) Teddy sends his love with Cadence's teddy.

I’ve been thinking about taking orders for more bears from some local friends but I’m afraid my knitting skills aren’t really good enough to justify charging money. I guess I could sell them for just the cost of the yarn but the seaming takes SO MUCH time I would hate making them basically for free. I think I need a little more practice before I let my Etsy store dreams get out of hand.

    Congratulations Meghan!!! I’m sure the whole family is so excited to have a new little grandbaby girl/neice to spoil!

    Suzanne- Love the bears!!! They are so cute. You did such a nice job. I think they are definitely Etsy worthy!

    Yay! I was hoping that I was the reader that you were making one for and didn’t want to give it away too soon. The bear is absolutly adorable!

    I would totally pay you for a bear! I, um, I mean, my daughter, LOVES stuffed animals. We have nothing like this bear.

    Ohmygosh, I can’t believe you made those bears! They’re really, really cute. And not frilly. Just my style. Keep me posted on the Etsy shop opening (i.e. you could totally sell these)! :)

    OK- Suzanne. HOLY! CRAP! Not only are you one crafty mama- but the idea of stuffing the felt heart into the bear is like heart meltingly cute. LOVE IT!
