Memory Bears Gallery

These priceless mementos can be made of any number of fabrics and are generally made from a loved one's clothing or personal belongings.  In this photo gallery most of the Memory Bears are made from clothing. There is no limit to what kind of fabric that can be used or what the fabric originally was used for. Shirts, pants, jackets, blankets, there really is no limit to what fabric/clothing related items that be used. If you are in doubt if your fabric choice will work or have questions on how to use your item in a Memory Bear please contact me prior to ordering.



Memory Bears are a great way to keep a lost loved one close to the heart. They also can be made to immortalize a special time or event in a person’s life.  The bears shown at the right are a sample of remembering an important time in a mother’s life. These bears are made from a sheer, Swiss dot fabric which once was a valance in a child’s nursery.

All to often people do not have room to keep a full sized treasured item from a special occasion. Memory Bears can be made from wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses & prom gowns.  This beautiful White bear was made from the satin of a wedding dress and then adorned with a ribbon of the wedding color.


Memory Bears can be made from more then one color and several different types of fabric. This bear is mix of: denim (old jeans), cotton dress shirts, cotton jersey t-shirts, and a flannel shirt. Mixing types, textures and colors of fabric adds a fun and unique look to any bear. This type of bear works very well when using small articles of clothing/fabric or when ordering multiple bears for several people.  This style also works well to make one bear memorializing more then one person (i.e. mom & dad, bride & groom, etc.)

Scraps of fabric from quilting and sewing projects can make a lovely keepsake for anyone. This Memory Bear is made of 100% cotton fabrics, which were scraps from several quilts made for “Breast Cancer Awareness” Benefits.


Did your loved one have a favorite hunting shirt, jersey, pair of jeans, blanket or other article of fabric that will always remind you of them? Then a traditional Memory Bear is the perfect choice. This bear is made of a 100% cotton flannel-hunting shirt, a keepsake not only of the loved one, but also of every important hunting season memory.

Floppy Bears Gallery

These cuddly bears are the perfect memory for a child. They would make the perfect keepsake made from a child’s favorite worn out blanket to a favorite shirt or outfit. These also can be made of any number of fabrics types and can be constructed from a loved one's clothing or personal belongings.  In this photo gallery most of the Floppy Bears are made from clothing. But there is no limit to what kind of fabric that can be used. Floppy Bears are considerably larger (minimum 12 inches tall–sitting) then original Memory Bears; they are stuffed with a high loft shredded batting for maximum “cuddling” comfort.

Here is the perfect way to keep a child’s blanket close to them. Kids favorite “blankies” always become a sticking point for parents when the child is either to old to carry it around or worse, the blanket is totally beyond repair. Here is the perfect alternative to a “blankie” and can still be useful as a comfort tool as well as a forever keepsake the child. This bear is again 100% kid safe, washable, soft and squeezable to provide maximum comfort and lovableness.


This Floppy Bear is made from a loved one's fleece sweatshirts and t-shirts. The eyes, nose and mouth are completely hand stitched making them kid safe. This bear is wearing swim trunks also made from the persons clothing. (Specialty clothing can be made for an added charge)

 


 

This little cuddler is also made from clothing, sports pants and polyester jackets. The ears and paw pads are from the lining of the jackets. The heart stitched on the chest of the bear is made from a special favorite shirt that was worn in many family activities and photos
