I do get a number of requests for custom teddy bears, but this was the first one with green fur and blue accents. This was because the person the bear was for is an Intracranial Hypertension warrior and blue and green are the IH Awareness colors.
Elizabeth was very specific about what she wanted to her bear to look like. It was to have green fur with blue accents and the chest patch was to have the IH awareness ribbon on it and the words Intracranial Hypertension embroidered above and below the ribbon respectively.
She wanted her name and diagnosis date on the bear's flank.
Another special feature that her handmade teddy should have was an included wind up music box that played the "Theme from Love Story".
These were all requests I was able to help her with. To top off the bear, she received a special wish on her foot and a whimsy blue and green ribbon scarf at her neck and her new owner loved her as you can see here.
