Memory bear quote

What are memory keepsakes?

Memory bears are teddy bears made from loved one's clothes, or items of clothing of sentimental value. The clothing can also be turned into keepsake cushions, hearts or other items.

These keepsakes are made in remembrance of a loved one and can provide comfort during times of grief. By turning old clothes into a keepsake like this, you can have a soft, huggable and beautiful remembrance of a loved one.

Memory keepsakes make ideal Sympathy Gifts, Memorial Gifts and Bereavement Gifts for children and adults that have lost parents or grandparents.
