Our Brag Book

I’m sure you’ve all been cornered by a new Mum/Dad/Grandparent to be shown their little photo album, or ‘brag book’ showing off their baby/grandchild. Well here at Tag Along Teddies, we’re very proud of the fantastic and creative projects that our crafting friends create, so we’ve added our very own ‘brag book’ to the web site to share this feast of talent with you!

We’ve opened the brag book with some photos sent to us for the recent “My Favourite Craft Project” competition, along with a few snapshots you’ve already sent in to show me what craft you’re up to. I’m hoping to continue to add more photos to this page as we go along, so I’d love you to email me photos of your craft projects as you finish them. Whatever projects you’re working on, whether it’s a bear, stitchery, wall hanging, quilt, doll, folk art – whatever! We’d love to include it in our brag book to help inspire creativity in all who visit the page.

So, enjoy a browse through the photos we already have and email any new photos to me at We’ll add new photos at the end of each month, so be sure to check back to see what the extended Tag Along Teddies crafting family has been up to!


This is my favourite craft project, a stack and slash quilt in black and white (with a touch of gold) and its my favourite because it was so beautiful when it was finished, I wanted to keep it (it was a wedding present to a friend.)

(Deb from Newcastle)

Deb from Newcastle loved this bag pattern from ‘Apple Cottage’ which lists things to do today as: “go shopping, coffee with friends, browse through favourite quilt shop, coffee again (with cake!), put feet up & relax with favourite book, go swing in the park—yeah right! Maybe tomorrow!” I like that list!

Deb from Newcastle made this gorgeous butterfly quilt for a friend. The browns, beiges & creams provide the perfect background to highlight the vibrant colours of the butterflies—you can almost feel them flutter!

My mate Deb from Newcastle tackled this wall hanging as her very first ‘quilting’ project—and now she’s hooked!
My friend Lynda wanted to make bears for family members for Christmas, but decided to make one for herself as a ‘practice’. Using the “Olive Bear” Pattern, she created a gorgeous girly bear, called May ater her aunty May!

My friend Lynda’s daughter, Amy, shows off a name hanger I made for her. Amy is already a keen stitcher at just 7 years of age & already designs her own stitcheries—watch out for her patterns in a few years!
I loved teaching Leanne how to make Olive Bear at the recent craft retreat! She was such a low-maintenance student who picked things up very quickly. Above is a photo of Leanne concentrating hard on sculpting her bear’s face & with her completed bear—Matilda.
This funky, colourful dinosaur stitchery was a gift for Lynda’s nephew.
This cute bear looks great in bright T-shirt and overalls & was a gift for a teacher having a first baby. She had a little boy, so the bear was just right! Wanting unique Teacher’s Day gifts for her kids’ teachers, Lynda made these funky school dolls for Jayk & Amy to give their teachers – both loved them!
This gorgeous duo were Christmas gifts for Lynda’s nieces & unbeknownst to Lynda, the colours chosen for the dresses matched the girls’ bedroom décor.

My Best Friend since yr 4, Lynette, shows off the two cute bears she made when we recently had a “sleep-over-play-date” – her hubbie was away for work, so I spent a few days helping her create bears! They are Lynette’s versions of Duncan and Danae and turned out FABULOUSLY!!
Lynda has been stitching away again – this is a wall hanging she designed herself for a friend – Didn’t she do a great job!!
I really enjoyed browsing your Beary Nice site, youi have put a lot of thought into it, and for that, Icomend you for your effort. I am 55 years old, and I love bears, I have a bear that I have had since I was bout 5 years old, wearing a lil tee shirt that my Grandmama handstitched for me, sitting in a rocking chair that I got when I was 4. When I get someway to take a pic of it, I will post it here, that is if its ok. I also have taken the jointed bears that you can get at Hobby Lobby and dressed them up in lace to look like a bride and groom and bridesmaids for gifts. Keep up the good work, and may every stitch you do, be backed up with a happy thought.
