Berri sent us her late Aunts fur coat. She wanted a bear made in her Aunt’s memory from it. The coat was Raccoon so it made a really fluffly bear.
“Liane, OMG! My Aunt Bettye Bear just arrived. I have been crying for 10 minutes. She came out perfect. I can still smell my Aunt. Thank you and you team for making a beautiful memory for me!” Berri Winnick
June Weedon put this nice note on my Facebook page after she had received her bears made from her fur jacket.
“In cleaning out my closet, I found the mink jacket my husband bought me many years ago. He has since passed and I wondered what to do with it. With the debate over whether one should or should not wear animal fur, I decided to check the internet to see if I could find someone who could make my jacket into two 14” bears for my grandchildren, and found you—Fairy Godmother Creations. I received the bears that you made yesterday, and LOVE THEM! Your workmanship is superb! Using the lining of my coat to make a monogrammed scarf with each grandchild’s name embroidered on it was “frosting on the cake.
“I am so pleased with them and can’t wait to give each grandchild their bear. All best,” June Weedon.
Janice Nunez sent us her late mother’s mink fur jacket to have us make these custom, jointed bears for her grand grandchild and herself.
Dolores Hattendorf sent a shaved beaver fur stole to have this bear made. She gave us free reign to select the eye color and decide whether or not to use the lining for a scarf. We chose blue eyes because they showed up better against the dark fur and I decided not to use the garment lining for the scarf. We used the lining on the ear and paw pads but it wasn’t the nicest lining so I found a bright, colorful fabric for the scarf.
June Chaudet sent us a piece of her fur coat and a strip of the lining to have this bear made for her granddaughter. Black fur is hard to photograph, but he is very soft and cuddly.
