Fabric Bears


Our memory bears can be made from sweaters, bridal gowns, baby blankets, quilts, suits, coats, dresses, fake fur, t-shirts, uniforms, sports jackets, varsity jackets — or any sentimental and meaningful fabric. They can preserve a memory, honor a person, or remember an occasion or special event.

All of our memory bears are made in the USA and are jointed with movable arms and legs, have child-safe eyes and noses, are stuffed with poly-fiberfill, and are lined for durability.

“Dear Rita, Thank you so much for doing our memory bears.  Our Christmas was so very special because of the bears. Our kids were so surprised!  They said it was the best ever Christmas present, they each have a piece of their dad to hold, talk to and hug.  They will have them forever and pass them along.  Thank you so much.” ~ Sincerely, Peg W., Enola PA

“Why I saved the three receiving blankets that we brought our babies home from the hospital in, I’ll never know. Would you believe 40 years later, I had them made into Memory Bears with their birth dates on the paws and gave them to my grandchildren. They love them. Being a saver sometimes pays off.” ~ J.

“My father loved his L. L. Bean coat and wore it all the time. Thank you for making the wonderful bears from his favorite coat. They remind us of him and the happy times when he wore the coat.” ~ W. P., Richmond, VA
