Boo Boo Bear


What to do when someone has a little bump that needs some TLC and you have no frozen peas in the freezer....make a Boo Boo Bear! He's filled with rice and just waiting in the freezer for the next boo boo.



I used a bear applique pattern that I had and marked it on the right side of the fabric. Then I added the paws and nose before I sewed him together.



Turn him over and mark the pattern on the wrong side of the fabric and sew the two pieces together on your lines. Be sure to leave an opening for turning and stuffing. Trim close to your stitching and clip the corners.



Fill with rice and sew the opening shut. You really can't tell in the pictures but they are about 6". They get nice and cold in the freezer and are much softer than a bag of peas!

I'll be joining these parties this week.

o my heck...they are so darling!!! I bet the little ones would love this a whole lot more than the bag of peas!:) can you put any kind of rice in it???

Terry said...

Is this common knowledge or are you a genius,.....how did you think to sew on the applique before sewing the pieces together. That seems brilliant to me. I love these little guys.

Oh, they are so cute...I never heard of a Boo Boo Bear before. I bet these will make excellent stocking stuffers.

Now that is a clever idea and oh so cute. I would have needed about 10 of these when my son was little!! I will definitely have to make one or two of these.

Oh, this is a great idea. Of course, my kids would be coming up with imaginary boo-boos just to get a chance to pull one out of the freezer.

I'd love if you would consider sharing this at my Thingamajig Thursday party...http://radcrafter.com/2011/11/thingamajig-thursday-party-2/
