We can use most types of fabrics, although hand-knitted and crochet items may not be suitable.
Your large memory bear will be approximately 15 inches tall. For this we need at least 8 items of clothing. This gives us enough fabric, but also a good variety of colours and textures.
For a small memory bear, which is approximately 11 inches, we need at least 6 items.
Baby clothes keepsake bears are lovingly handmade from your child's outgrown baby clothes, and are a perfect way to remember those early days.
Made with the utmost care and attention to detail, your bear will be a wonderful heirloom which is unique to you and can be treasured for generations to come.
Please ensure all clothes you send are nice and clean, but there's no need to iron them!
For an added personal touch we can also stitch or print the name and birth date of your baby on your bear.
Or we can print your baby's hand or footprint, a favourite drawing, or a photo of your baby and incorporate it into your bear.
Please note: these bears are made as a keepsake not a toy, they do not pass toy safety standard tests due to the materials they are made from, and therefore they are not suitable for children under the age of 14.
The arms and legs are jointed using buttons and these could be a choking hazard in the unlikely event that they should become loose.
We can use any scraps of fabric leftover from making your memory bear and turn them into a beautiful cushion to complement your bear - perfect if you are displaying your bear in your child's bedroom.
The cushion comes complete with inner pad, either feather or synthetic, and the design can be created to suit you. Please just contact us for details.
