MEMORY BEARS

and other customized stuffed animals

Memory bears are a popular way to remember a loved one.  They bears are usually made from clothes, blankets, or other cloth materials that remind you of a loved one that has passed, or baby items from when your child was young.  They can be made entirely out of clothing items you provide, or mixed with minky fabrics from my collection.  Plan to use 2-3 items of clothing per bear.  Below are examples of the bear patterns I have to offer.

Memory "bears" can be any animal you choose.  I also make many custom animals from materials from my own collection to suit your taste.  Please contact me to discuss any custom or memory animals.
