These handmade memory bear keepsakes 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 memorial teddy gift for grandchildren to remember their grandparent.
Teddy 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 teddy bear uses 6 x A4 sized pieces of fabric.
