Ukraine 26 inch Buddy Bear AUkraine 26 inch Buddy Bear BUkraine 26 inch Buddy Bear C

Let me introduce you to our new 26″ Ukrainian Buddy Bears. They are adorable as can be.

These Ukrainian Buddy Bear outfits were designed and sewn by Ann Kasper. Anna did the most amazing job on these. She designed these outfits using our previous pattern pieces, tweaked them to become an Ukrainian Traditional outfit….but she does not have a Buddy Bear to see how it fit.

Look how great they fit….just use our basic patterns….and your imagination and you can come up with the most amazing outfits.

Here are some photos from our delivery today of 3 Tote Bags to Lutheran Social Service of Minneapolis. Every time I walk into the LSS building….I’m struck by all of the fantastic work that is happening in that building. It is a building that holds the offices of so many kind-hearted people that are giving their careers to helping people in one way or another. Our job at DCIH is to help soften the blow that the refugee children have gone through prior to coming to the United States. Thanks everyone….for helping us welcome these children.
