I always let my daughter decide what she wants me to make her for Halloween. This year she picked out a teddy bear costume for me to sew. She decided everything about the costume from the color of the furs, to the ribbon for the neck. It took about 2 1/2 weeks of sewing as well as her sewing her own gloves. After some application of Revlon Color Stay Foundation…ROAR! We have our life sized Build-A-Bear!
