Re-cycled Jumper Bears.
Yep . . . they are made of recycled jumpers, sweaters pullovers or what ever else you might like to call them.
Re-cycled jumper bears come from my love of recycling and combing through thrift/second hand stores looking for a bargain.
Jumpers are hot washed and tumble dries before being cut up and remade into bears. I try and source wool blend articles so they will shrink and felt up making for a lovely dense fabric to use, but acrylic and other fibres such as cotton can work just as well if they are nice and thick.
Most bears have moveable arms and legs and as with most of my creations they are one off as each is hand made by me.
