Memory Bear, Keepsake Bear, Unique Gift, Teddy Bear, Memorial Gift, Custom Made

** Please note: due to the amount of custom made orders I have received, there may be a delay of approx 8 weeks to make your custom Bear **

A very personal, one of a kind, unique gift.

Memory Bears are lovingly handcrafted from clothing that you choose that has special meaning to you.
A beautiful keepsake to cherish & to remember special times.
An awesome way to re-use outgrown baby clothes. Rather than give them away or store them, have them made into something extra special.
A Memory Bear can also be made from clothing of a loved one who has passed away.
Your loved one’s name or initials can be hand embroidered on the foot.

** Please note: The poem on the belly (in one of the sample photos) is done with a transfer & is an additional cost.

Most fabrics can be used but not: knitted materials, leather, thick woven fabrics, silk, chiffon or denim. If you are unsure, please contact me.
The pictured bears are an example only, as each bear is custom made. This pink bear sample was made from 3 tops & 1 toddler size romper.

Size: approx. 32cm (sitting)

Once your order is placed/paid, I will contact you with my address details so you can post the clothing to me. I will confirm when I have received them.
It will take approx. 2 – 3 weeks to make your special bear & I will let you know when the bear is finished & on the way to you.

The bear will take approx. 5 to 7 baby garments, 2 to 3 child garments or 1 to 2 adult garments.
The more you provide, the more I have to work with.

I know that it may not be easy to send your special clothes away to be cut up, but please know that I will take great care with your items & turn them into a beautiful memento.
I can make other keepsake animals or dolls. Please contact me with any requests.

* This bear is made as a keepsake & not intended to be used as a toy *
