Rabbit told me that patients are allowed to select a gift when they leave. Many of the children are considered out-patient. I know this to be true because one of my pastors had a baby last year who has been traveling to a Shriner's across the state for various surgeries to correct some birth defects.
The bears that we make won't necessarily have to be placed in a bag. They might wind up as those other gifts to patients.
I LOVE the bear! I don't know how you're going to provide the pattern. Will you be PM'ing it to interested people?
If so, I would love to give it a go.
Thanks a bunch!
