This listing is for the 18" Memory Bear / Keepsake Bear from Adult Clothes ONLY. I do make the 18" Memory Bear / Keepsake Bear from Baby Clothes also. If you are looking for those, this link will take you there:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/229806717/18-memory-bear-keepsake-bear-from-baby

I love the idea of being able to carry a loved one with you. These "one of a kind" memory bears are perfect for those who have had a loved one pass away and would like a bear made in their honor.

I make your special bear from clothing that you send me.

A bear can be made from one men's medium shirt or larger, or women's large or larger. You can send more than one shirt if you want them mixed together. If what you want to use is a youth size or a women's x-small, small or medium, I will need two shirts per bear.

*Please do not send items that have already been cut.*

Some great ideas from adult clothing are:
***Non Stretch Items*** :
-Button down shirts
-Flannel shirts
-Flannel pajamas
-Flannel bath robes (knee length or longer)
-Cotton dresses (knee length or longer)
-Cotton skirts (knee length or longer)
-Corduroy items - pants or jackets
-Denim items - jeans or jackets
-Uniform shirts

***Stretchy Items***
(Stretchy means if your item gives or stretches when pulled on)
-T-shirts (please keep in mind that if there is a large logo on your t-shirt, that it may not all fit on your bear)
-Golf/Polo shirts
-Sweatshirts (please keep in mind that if there is a large logo on your sweatshirt, that it may not all fit on your bear)
-Fleece shirts
-Fleece pajamas
-Fleece bath robes (knee length or longer)
-Cotton knit/t-shirt dresses (knee length or longer)
-Cotton knit skirts (knee length or longer)

With items that are stretchy, I iron in an easy knit stabilizer to help control stretching and maintain shape.

***PLEASE NOTE that if you send items that are stretchy and DO NOT order your bear as using STRETCHY items from the menu selection, the stabilizer WILL NOT be used and your bear will not have a structured shape to it, especially the head/face area. I want your bear to be the best it can be, so please be sure to correctly order according to the type of material being sent.***

If you have specific items you would like to use other than what is listed above, please contact me BEFORE placing your order.

Materials that can't be used:
-loose knit items
-handmade crochet or knit items
-thick knit sweaters
-sheer or lace items
-silky or satin-like polyester materials such as wedding/bridesmaid dresses, blouses or night gowns
-muslin or gauze type material
-nylon items
-woven afghans or blankets
-bedding
-swim trunks or bathing suits

I sometimes use your item's buttons for the eyes and a small piece of felt for the nose. If there are no buttons to use, I will use safety eyes. I try to use any emblem or logo from the shirt if it will fit onto your bear (unless specified not to). The neck is double stitched (since it's the part that gets the most lovin' 😉).

I do not offer gift cards or gift certificates directly through my shop. However, I do accept Etsy gift cards that can be used toward any item in my shop. If an Etsy gift card is being used toward purchasing a memory/keepsake item, please keep in mind that the items needed to make the memory/keepsake item need to be sent to me within a week of purchase.
I’m sorry, but no. I do not offer weighting any of the memory/keepsake items.
I’m sorry, but I do not make clothes for the bears. While I do try to make most accommodations and personal requests, clothing is just not an option I offer. Additions to the bears that I do offer can be found in my Additional Options Listing in my Shop.
