What is a Memory Bear? And how can I get one?

We make custom teddy bears and other stuffed animals from your clothing, blankets and other fabric items. We can help you get that precious clothing out of the closet and on display in your home. Whether it’s your baby’s hospital blanket, coming home outfit or first Christmas outfit, your Grandma’s favourite robe or Grandpa’s flannel shirt, we take your fabric and upcycle it into a beautiful keepsake stuffed animal.

Floral Baby Keepsake Bunny

How beautiful is this tiny sleepy bunny? We made it from the most gorgeous floral baby sleeper. 💕
Our tiny memory bears are a great alternative to our larger, more expensive baby keepsakes. Whether you only have a small amount of fabric, or you'd like a smaller keepsake stuffed animal, we can make our tiny memory bears and other animals from something as small as a preemie sized footed sleeper.
