Patchwork Memory Bears

If you have several shirts, ties or pieces of clothing and want a bit of each one captured in a memory bear, we offer a patchwork memory bear. We can use fabric from 6-12 different pieces on these. Since we have to make the patchwork fabric before we even get to cutting and sewing the bear, these do cost considerably more. However, we can save a little time in the process when making additional bears so we do offer a discount for additional patchwork teddy bears.  We offer three different options for patchwork bears.

Patchwork Bears use 6-12 clothing items. They have jointed arms and legs and come with standard acrylic safety-lock eyes.

Neck Tie bears need 6 or more neck ties.  They come with jointed arms and legs and standard acrylic safety-lock eyes.

First year bears are made from a patchwork of 12 outfits from baby’s first year. 


These bears are approximately 16″ tall. Each bear has jointed arms and legs, acrylic safety-lock eyes, plastic nose and comes with a scarf or satin ribbon.

  • $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)

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

Important!: It is important to know that memory bears made from matured fur cannot be considered toys.Although I do things to re-enforce the fur and make it stable, old fur is not overly sturdy and it simply won’t hold up to rough child play. In addition, the premium glass eyes are NOT child safe. They are blown glass on the end of a wire. Although they are securely attached to the bear, a child pulling and twisting them can break them off and they can become a choking hazard.
