Memory bears are custom teddy bears made from the treasured clothing of your loved ones. I have been sewing for several decades and started making memory bears in 2015. Since then, I have made nearly 1,000 memory bears from many types of clothing.

This listing is for ordering a custom memory bear made from baby clothing only. Check out the Memory/Keepsake Bears section of my shop to see listings for bears made from adult clothing and other styles of bears I create.§ion_id=18649500

The process:
1. Select the style of bear you would like, any add-on options and the appropriate number of bears and add them to your cart. If you have questions, please contact me before placing an order.
2. Complete the checkout and send pictures and let me know what size of sleeper you have chosen. Once I receive your order, I will contact you with my personal address where you would then mail the clothing. I live in Missouri.
3. Please mail the clothing within 1 week of placing your order. Please make sure that the clothing you are sending me is clean and free of odors, animal hairs, etc., as I work very closely with your items. I will not be able to wash any clothing and will need to return any soiled clothing or clothing with strong odors at your expense.
4. Once your clothing arrives, I will message you to confirm its safe arrival and provide you with a shipping/completion date.
5. Once I complete your bear and ship it you will receive an email with the tracking information. I offer free shipping in a polybag for the bear (without insurance) unless you need the scraps back. Returning the scraps puts the bears into another weight class so the customer will need to pay the additional charge for return shipping of the scraps and if they would like the bear insured or put in a box.

Size: 13 inches from head to feet when laid flat. Clothing under 6 months, tight fitting jersey sleepers and clothing without arms and legs will most likely need fabric added to get a 13 inch bear. Added fabric will be a matching solid color. You are welcome to send an additional outfit or 2 and/or blanket if you do not want fabric added. I have a different style of bear based off the size of your sleeper which requires no extra fabric! Check it out here!

Suitable Clothing:
►baby sleepers with long legs and long arms
►baby sleepers with no feet (not a problem!)
►onesies with no legs and short sleeves (will most likely need fabric added)
►flannel, fleece, and cotton receiving blankets
►infant gowns

Unsuitable Clothing:
►Thin fabrics-rayon, silk, satin, sheer, leggings, nylon
►Thick fabrics-leather, denim, fur, wool shirts, thick blankets, thick towels,
►Knit items and items with a loose weave-sweaters, cardigans, knit blankets, muslin swaddle blankets with loose weave
►Very old or heavily worn clothing

13” Baby Bear customization includes:
►Design/image incorporation from outfit on chest (or back). Design must fit within a 3.75 x 3.75 area for chest and 4 x 4 for back. Designs are always put on the front of the bear unless otherwise requested. Please let me know if you do not want something incorporated as I always incorporate items from the sleepers unless they are too large.
►incorporation of special feet from sleeper
►incorporation of second small design on tail (1.5” X 1.5”)

Embroidery options:
►bears chest (provided there is not a large design to be placed on the chest)
►on the feet, back, or legs
If you desire embroidery other than a name, DOB, or initials, please let me know before ordering so I can see if I am able to do it and set up a special listing for you to order. I cannot fit long names on the bears or spell out DOB’s. DOB’s will appear in numerical format. If not specified I will choose a coordinating thread color and font.

Additional options:
►Items such as custom/altered hats, jackets, angel wings, special bear clothing, embroidered faces, etc., are not included in the price of the bears and I will need to set up a custom listing for you to order.

The purchase of this listing is for the cost to make the bear and the shipping of the bear to you (which is calculated upon checkout according to quantity, styles and design chosen). It does not include the cost of the clothing to be mailed to me as I am unable to send shipping labels and mailing supplies. When mailing your clothing please consider adding tracking and also include your name and address or order number somewhere inside the package if it is not on the return label or you have used a shipping service that does not identify you on the package. I am often expecting a large number of packages from many different customers and this information helps me identify your clothing and order. I will let you know when I receive the clothing and provide you with a shipping date.

Other Information:
♥All bears are made in my smoke free home!
♥I strive to create sturdy quality bears, but they are still meant to be a keepsake item and not for the rough play of a child. If you allow children to play with them it is as your own discretion.
♥I do not have a discount for the purchase of more than one bear. Each bear is handmade by me, and I put the same amount of time, attention and care into each one. My time and care put into each bear is the same regardless of the quantity of bears I am working with. Sewing is my fulltime job, and my prices are consistent with a living wage. The same value is offered to all my customers regardless of how many items they order.

Any copying of my listing descriptions, information and use of my photos by others will be reported to Etsy as an intellectual property infringement. Copy and paste is usually a bad idea unless you are copying your own work and your own words. Even copying and pasting this paragraph to use in your own shop is a bad idea. The information in my shop has come from my experiences and it has taken time for me to develop. Over time you will develop your shop and business based on your own experiences so please do not copy mine. Etsy takes intellectual property reports very seriously.

Our memory bear was amazing!! I sent her my sons first outfits and I'm so obsessed with how it turned out!!!

This seller was the only one who would fit the special saying I had on the front of the onesie that I had. All the rest thought it would be too big and weren't even willing to try! This was such a great shop to work with and the bear turned out to be completely perfect! Exactly what I hoped for and it will be such a great birthday surprise for my little girl!

Molly is awesome!!! She did a rush bear for me to give to my wife on her 40th birthday this weekend. The bear arrived today and it is absolutely perfect! My wife will get to meet him him on Saturday. Molly made a cute little bear out of my wife's favorite onesie that our little boy has grown out of (he is 1 year old today). The stitching is perfect and he has the little footies from the onesie as his feet and he even has a little tail. The pattern from the original onesie is centered perfectly. Seriously, the quality of Molly's product is as good or better than a store bought stuffed animal. No, it's better. Molly made the rush transaction so easy that even a husband who doesn't plan ahead could get it right. I highly recommend choosing Molly for your keepsake memory bear.

The bear turned out beautifully. I had a remembrance bear made with the only clothes my stillborn son ever wore. Obviously it is a very special and sentimental memento for me and I am so happy with how it turned out. It is nice to have something physical to hold to remember my son. The shop owner was very helpful and fulfilled all my special requests. Thank you.
