Memory keepsake bear - recycled from loved ones clothing / shirt



These handmade memory bears are made from your loved ones clothing. They are a lovely way to deal with grief and treasure the memories of loved ones, and turn their clothes into something you can treasure forever. A lovely gift for grandchildren to remember their grandparent.


Bears are best made from shirts, t-shirts or jumpers. They can be made from 1 items of clothing - the more items (maximum 5 items per bear), the more varied your bear will be. For example, if you want a group of 5 bears, you can send 5 items and I'll use a piece of each clothing for every bear.

To give a better idea of the amount of clothing I need - each bear uses 6 x A4 sized pieces of fabric.


  • The bears can be personalised on their paws or a felt patch on their belly
  • Enter your personalisation details in the Personalisation box
  • Paws - (1st paw / 2nd paw) add dates or names (max 3 lines, 8 characters per line)
  • Belly standard quote "These are clothes, I used to wear, hold me close, & I'll be there" or personalise with names or message (max 5 lines, total 100 characters)

TIP: Visit Facebook or Instagram to see examples of memory items.


Once you have placed your order, just post the clothing to the address on the invoice.

I will return your bears via standard post unless you upgrade (in checkout) to Next Day Delivery (tracked) - recommended for such precious items!

  • The bears are approx. 30 cm tall
  • Stuffing is a hollowfibre filling
  • Please not this product is not suitable for children under 14 years of age and is meant as a keepsake not a toy. This is because the nature of using your recycled clothes, means the keepsakes can not be CE tested.
