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.

We will treat your cherished fabric with respect and use it to make the most beautiful keepsake possible. You can trust us to make the best choices to highlight your special fabric on your keepsake animal. If you have ideas on how you would like specific pieces of your fabric to be used, please let us know and we will follow your requests whenever possible.

Quality is the number one goal in everything we do. By drawing on years of experience in graphic arts and customer service, we are able to create the most attractive keepsake with your treasured fabric, while guiding you through the process with compassion.
