How It Works

Step 1 - Pick your clothing

Pick the clothes you would like transformed into a special handmade keepsake.

A Memory Bear can be made from just 1 item of adults clothes however i recommend 1-2 items to give a nice contrast if you have them available.

A baby Keepsake Bear requires 6-7 items ( Age 3-6 months), if you items are premi then many be a few extra or if the are larger then 1 or 2 less.

These are just guidelines and you can request as many items to be included in your special keepsake.

Please ensure your sentimental clothing is clean and in good condition to be used for your keepsake.


Step 2 - Pick your keepsake

Head to the Our Products page and pick the item that you would like us to make.

You’ve got plenty to choose from including the traditional bear, a variety of animals, cushions and even quilts.

You’ll find all the key details you need for each product including size, quantity of items required and any additional extras we offer.

Step 3 - Make an Order Request

Head to the Order Request page and fill in Order Request Form. The form will capture all the information we need.  Please take note of the current availability dates.
