Memory Bears from Fur

We have been making memory bears from fur coats for decades. We can work with just about any kind of fur.  Please visit our FAQ for more information about types of fur. Dealing with real fur offers some challenges that take time and patience and our price reflects that.   Faux fur offers its own special challenge because the fibers are thicker so our price is the same regardless of the type of fur. 

Pricing

Each fur memory bear has jointed arms and legs, acrylic safety-lock eyes, plastic nose and comes with a scarf or satin ribbon.  We try to use the lining of the coat for the scarf and accents whenever possible.

  • $155 (plus shipping) for a 10″-14″ memory bear
  • $175 (plus shipping) for a 16″ memory bear
  • $195 (plus shipping) for an 18″ memory bear

NOTE: For Mouton, Fox, Raccoon, Coyote and Seal. We can’t make a teddy bear smaller than 16″. Because of the thickness of the hide or density of the long fur, these furs simply don’t work for smaller memory bears. We are not currently offering a non-jointed option in fur bears.

Add-Ons:

  • $15 Custom Scarf
  • $18 to embroider two (2) initials on one foot per bear (Because the foot pad is not that large, we are limited to two (2) initials per foot.)
  • $18 to embroider initials or name on scarf (I do not have a large, industrial embroidery machine so am limited to a 4″ space but I can put a name on each scarf)
  • $25 to make a vest 
  • $8 for glasses

Shipping Information

Shipping is $15 for the first memory bear and $6 per each additional bear. We are located in Dayton, Ohio (45402).

For some reason, AOL doesn’t always allow my emails through. If you have emailed me and don’t receive a response within 24 hours, it means I either didn’t get your email, or my response did not make it to you.

Additional Information

How much fur does it take to make a bear? I can usually get the following:

  • Standard small shoulder stole = Two 12″-14″ bears
  • Larger stole or small jacket = Two 14″ bears one 16″” bear
  • Hip-length jacket/coat = Three to four 12″-14″ bears or two 16″″ bears or one 18″ bear
  • Full length coat = Six 12″-14″ bears or three 16″- 18″ bears 

Each bear has approximately 24 pattern pieces. If someone wants more bears from a garment, I can sometimes adapt my patterns to make smaller bears. I don’t like to work with bears less than 9″ though.
