Most of us have a favourite stuffed toy that holds cherished memories.
After the birth of my nephew Calum in 2011. I wanted to find him a bear just like one that I had when I was young. However, on failing to find the perfect bear, and with having enough confidence in my sewing skills, I created my own as a gift to him which turned into a much loved hobby which I couldn't put down. And so I began to fuel this hobby by selling my bears on Etsy.com.

Since then it has been my amazing customers that have further developed my product and it’s service, by using my skills to create their idea of the perfect bear for it’s companion.

As my business is developing I’m coming across more opportunities, and am currently writing and illustrating a children’s book around the brand. I also offer customers the opportunity to make a bear out of something special, such as a grown out of school uniform or maybe a bridesmaid dress Taking something special hidden in a draw into something even more special that can be cherished everyday.

Also as 10% of my custom is very sadly from mums and dads who have lost, I now donate £10 to the charity Sands, for every bear that’s made in memory of a little angel.

Thank you for reading my story.
