Memory Bear


Memory Bears are so special.  It not only preserves wonderful memories but does it in a huggable, lovable way. Memory Bears don’t just come in the shape of bears.  You will see a variety of other soft toys also used for keeping memories.  Dragons and bunnies and cats and lions.

For my Memory Bears I am using the teddy bear pattern “Melody” from Funky Friends Factory. I am also using safety eyes and safety noses. This means that the teddy is safe around children but not without supervision.  So far, in my experience, if the safety eyes or nose come out it is usually with a chunk of fabric attached.  The reason fabric could possibly be torn when unnatural force is applied, is because some fabrics are more delicate and can become more delicate with time. I iron interfacing onto all materials, but have started to put two different kinds of interfacing on more delicate ‘memory’ fabric. It is also best to place your teddy in a pillow case if you want to wash him so as not to get any other clothing snagged on the eyes or nose.

To make a Memory Bear I have certain requirements.

*I need 6 – 8 items sent/delivered to me in a ziploc bag with all the details that needs to be embroidered on a paper inside the bag.

*You can give me an order of preferance to use/highlight items if you want.

*I will be able to tell if I have enough material to work with, depending on the quality and condition of the items and communicate this with you.

*You can let me know if you only have one or two items that you would like highlighted and want me to use my own fabric for the rest of the teddy.

*I will give you a date by which I have to start with the fabric preparation.  If I don’t have the fabric at that time I will have to move your order to the next available open spot.

*Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

The exact fabric shown in the picture might not be available, but if not, similar fabric will be chosen. This information will be communicated with you before I start making your item.
