What is a tragic teddy???

Marjorie, a TT is an adorable teddy that is great for the children to hug and love.  Here's a photo of one of Mary's Mom's teddies in action !  

This is the website: http://www.teddiesfortragedies.org/   The pattern is also listed on the left side.  Teddies are always welcome in South Africa ! 

Linda, Thank you for that, I shall add it to my project list.  They look really cuddly.

just sorry Marjorie official they are Teddies For Tragedy but in our family we call them the Tragic Teddies of course they all have lovely smiley faces and are anything but. My mom will only post them in pairs incase they get lonely on the long voyage to SA.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
