Memory Bears - (as well as cats, dogs, angels, pillows, etc.)
Bears are created using garments from a special event or person - wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, prom, military uniform, or clothing from a departed loved one. The finished bear is approximately 15" high. The arms and legs are sewn on and slightly movable. They are not jointed with plastic parts. They have no facial features. Filled with polyester stuffing. $40.00 each for a basic bear.
Additional details and embellishments available for extra charge -

Process - Send 2 small or 1 large garment for each bear. Must be clean with no tobacco or pet odors. Several bears can be made from one wedding gown. Shipping cost to and from my studio is at your expense.
Special Notice as of 05/19/2013 - After much consideration and prayer, I have decided to make a special arrangement for families that have lost a child under the age of 16. These bears will be created with no labor charge up to one year after loss. Families will only incur cost of shipping and materials to create the bear. I really enjoy making them and I know how they can touch the heart of a recipient, especially a grieving parent.
