Thank you so much for making her most favorite dress into a new special friend for her. She loves it!

These pictures are taken almost exactly 2 years apart ☺️
Hi! I don’t see the winner of your drawing from 1/8? Thanks!
Hello — are you currently taking orders? I’m interested in having a bear made for my newest daughter. Please let me know — thanks!
Hi there - are you currently accepting orders? I sent you a PM; please let me know - thanks!
Looking to have my wedding dress turned into a Christmas tree skirt. Is that something that you do?
Hello. Sent you a couple messages. Are you still making bears?
Hello i just sent you a Pm!
I would like a bear made from my grandparents clothes. Can you do that? How much ?
Are you accepting new orders?
She is THE BEST! I've ordered 4 bears and LOVE ALL OF THEM! My favorite is the one she created out of my Mother's nightshirt with her ashes inside. I had no idea how to save her ashes in a memorable way until I found this site and reluctantly asked if she would be willing to do it. Without hesitation, she said yes and it's my favorite thing I now have to remember my Momma! Thank you SO much! You've given me the greatest gift! I recommend you to so many people! You rock! 😊❤️❤️❤️

Creating and sewing new memories from old ones Hello and welcome! My name is Holly and I create memory bears. A memory bear is a unique way to upcycle baby/childrens and adult clothes into memorable keepsake bears.

They'll be able to hug, cuddle, kiss, and cherish forever their new friend. I know there are many crafters out there that also create memory bears. So if you are here, thank you! I appreciate you! Please check out my prices, return policy, and Q & A section pinned to the top of this page. And feel free to message me if you have any questions. Thank you!

All orders placed now will not arrive on time for Christmas. I am still offering gift certificates that can be purchased here or through my Etsy shop.

Only one week until Halloween! What are you or your littles dressing up as? Mine will be Rapunzel, a dark shadow, and a Taco 😂

Wishing you all a happy and safe Halloween week/end!!

Thank you all so much for the love and thoughts. I am running at 100% now and working hard to get caught up on orders. I can’t believe it’s already October! Please keep in mind that i will not be taking any Christmas orders after October 15th. I will still be accepting orders after, but they will not be done in time for you to gift for Christmas. The post office is already running slower, and other shipping companies will be seeing delays too.

Thank you all so much!

Unfortunately i have become ill and tested positive for Covid. This illness has taken a toll on myself and is taken longer than i had anticipated to recover. I know i have many unanswered messages, but i don’t have the strength or focus to answer any right now. Im so sorry, and please don’t think I’m ignoring your messages on purpose. Im hoping to be better by end of this week. Covid has truly kicked my butt and i think more rest is what i need. Thank you all so much for your understanding.

Thanks so much for everyone’s love and support. I am going to have to take a short break and not accept any new orders for a few weeks so i can catch up on all the current orders. The constant influx of orders is getting a bit overwhelming and hate to extend my turn around time past 2 months. (If i have already spoken to you, then i will still accept your order. )

Hopefully when i come back, the turn around time will be around 4-5 weeks.

Again, thank you so much and hope you all have a safe a wonderful day!

More bears! 💓 current turn around time is 7-8 weeks. I can invoice through PayPal or you can order through Etsy. https://etsy.me/2SpqjVb

Thanks so much!

Current situation right now 😅 Glad school will be starting back up for my littles, so i can get more done daily. Current turn around time is 6ish weeks. Please also keep in mind, my cut off date for Christmas orders will be November 1st. I can’t believe more than half the year is already over.

This is a bear I made several years ago from one of my daughter's sleepers. It was one of my favorites. When I look up from my work or from my sewing, and I see this, I don't see a bear. I see my 6 month old baby girl crawling for the first time. I see my baby girl waking up (one of the many times) in the middle of the night. I see myself cradling and soothing my baby girl.

I sometimes get overwhelmed with the amount of work I have and even in the past have gotten a bit burnt out. I forget sometimes that when I create these beautiful bears, that I'm not creating just a stuffed animal, but I'm creating a special way to preserve memories. Memories that make us smile, chuckle, cry, and just memories that makes us feel like we can go back into the past for a moment.

I am forever grateful for having so many wonderful people entrusting me to create these keepsakes for them. It truly is humbling and an honor to do so. I can't tell you how much joy it brings me to read so many beautiful stories and how much these bears have impacted your lives.

I love doing give-aways as a way to give back to you all that have given me so much.

Just simply comment below to enter for a chance to receive one free small memory bear. I will choose one winner randomly on Sunday 4/2. Comments will be turned off at noon CST and the winner will be announced shortly after.

Thank you all! 💓

Thank you all so much for your continual support and orders. I have been staying so busy and enjoying every minute of creating all of these adorable bears. My closet is full of packages/orders and currently looking at about a 4-6 week turn around time right now.

I am looking into opening a website so you can choose between ordering from Etsy or the website. The website will hopefully be able to offer payment plans using After Pay and Sezzle!

Stay tuned....there will be a FREE bear giveaway coming up soon!!

Ribbit...Ribbit 🐸. Another cute memory bear going home. What do you think of the cute felt heart nose? I’m thinking of offering these instead of the button noses. Or maybe offer both...

Birthweight bears recently completed. 💓 I have to say, i got a little emotional making these. As i held them in my hands to make sure they were weighted correctly, i suddenly had those memories of my own babies being this little. 😭

Please remember holiday cutoff date is November 5th. That day is quickly approaching 😅

Hello and good evening FB friends! I know it has been awhile since I’ve been here, and i apologize for my absence. So much has gone on throughout the last couple months, but i am back now! My messenger is flooded with unread messages. If you are still interested in placing an order or need more information, please send me another message. I will get to you as soon as possible.

Let’s celebrate the fact that 2020 is 3/4 over with, with a bear giveaway!! Please comment below with something that you are looking forward to. For me, even though this year has been a struggle, i am looking forward to cooler temps and all things fall. The colors, the breezes, the smells, and watching leaves fall.

Hope you all are doing well and wishing you all a safe and healthy rest of the week. 💓

03/21/2020

I am almost caught up with my current orders. I’ll be accepting more next week, and will message you if we’ve already discussed your order.

I had to take a pause in work today to be able to help out our community with these fabric masks that will be donated. I am aware that they may not provide a whole lot of protection, but hospitals have reached out to many crafters urging for help. Many facilities have nothing at all and using scarves and bandanas. Sure puts a perspective of how much they truly put others’ needs before their own. 💓

If you want to help the medical staff, doctors, and nurses, then please stay inside and self quarantine. Keep yourself and others around you safe and healthy.

If you work in a field that is in need of masks, please reach out to me. I have enough fabric for 2 more boxes (25-30 masks)

Have a safe and wonderful weekend.

[03/04/20]   I just wanted to post a quick update on orders right now. I am a bit behind (almost 1 week behind). I am getting through them as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality and creativity. The ones that have been completed are so adorable! Makes me sad to have to part with them. I am completely booked at this time, but I hope to be able to accept more orders by mid-May. The current turn around time is abut 3-4 weeks. If you do want to order a bear, please start deciding now which items you'll want to use. I will ask for a photo of them. Thanks again! 💓
