A memory bear is a stuffed bear made from any fabric/clothing that you have from a loved one. These make perfect keepsakes and gifts. Gram has made these bears from childhood dresses, aprons, fur coats, button-down shirts, and just about anything else you can think of. Each bear is custom, so be sure to fill out the Special Requests section with any specifications that you have or ideas that you want incorporated. If you need more space to explain what you would like, please send us an e-mail, and we will be in contact with you. For this item, you order here and ship your fabric/clothing items to Gram at your expense (address is on our contact page). Then she makes and ships the bear back to you within 7-14 days.
