Memory Bears for Orlando Victims

We Stand with the Orlando Victims

We stand with Orlando / Orlando Victims
All of us at ReMinkie are shocked and appalled by the Orlando Shooting on June 12, 2016. In this horrific mass shooting, 49 innocent people were killed and 53 more were injured. The Orlando victims were struck down while enjoying a night out at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Florida. Our hearts go out to the Orlando victims as well as their friends and families during this painful and difficult time.

At ReMinkie, our expertise is often called upon during times of tragedy, grief and loss. We frequently make memory bears in honor and memory of loved ones who have passed away. For those who are left behind; those who are grieving deeply, a memory bear is a soft, beautiful and huggable keepsake.

Our memory bears are made from the clothes and/or belongings of the loved one who has died. We have designed bears out of shirts, jeans, pants, blouses, neckties, uniforms, tees, fur coats, and much more. We have adorned memory bears with jewelry that belonged to the deceased. Memory bears often become a treasured keepsake. Each is a one-of-a-kind remembrance of the loved one.

We are grateful that our memory bears offer solace and comfort during difficult times. We are rewarded whenever we hear that our bears have helped with the healing process. We know there’s no simple formula to cope with unbearable loss, but we also know that very few people can resist hugging a memory bear.

Again, we extend our sympathies for all the Orlando victims as well as all who knew and loved them. You have our support. We only wish there were magical words that could ease away the pain.

Making Teddy Bears Out of Clothes

Memorial Teddy Bears

Making teddy bears out of clothes is a beautiful way to preserve memories of loved ones who have passed away. We have made memorial teddy bears out of the clothes of beloved spouses, parents, grandparents and more. We have transformed clothes into comforting memory bears to hug and hold during times of grief and loss. Clothes include old fur coats, neckties, pants, jeans, shirts, blouses, uniforms and more.

Retirement Bears

Making teddy bears out of clothes can be a wonderful way to honor a recent retiree. We have made memory bears out of police uniforms, pilot uniforms, boy scout uniforms and much more. We have even made a colorful memory bear for a retiring teacher who wore fun neckties to school each day.

Kids & Baby Clothes

Have your children outgrown old clothes? A memory bear can be a wonderful way to repurpose and recycle clothes by making teddy bears out of clothes. Memory bears make meaningful birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, anniversary gifts, wedding gifts, graduation gifts, and much more. We can personalize teddy bears with monograms, t-shirts and more.

Clothes in Your Closet

Do you have old clothes hanging in your own closet? Maybe an old fur coat you don’t wear anymore. Making teddy bears out of clothes is a fabulous way to “go green.” Repurpose and recycle clothes with memory bears. We also make custom pillows, throws and quilts out of old clothes (including furs and neckties).
