Allison was amazing!! We were on a tight deadline to make 8 bears and Allison did it!! They are perfect. I highly recommend her for the quality, workmanship and detail. The feeling that I got from Allison is that she does this with a lot of love and understanding of what it means to the family to have something of their loved ones to hold on to.

We lost our baby girl Caroline on memorial day of 2021. She was so perfect, but we never got to bring her home from the hospital. All we had was the blanket we wrapped her in. This elephant is made from the only thing she wore in her short life, and we couldn't be more happy with how it turned out. Thank you Allison, this is a beautiful reminder of our baby that we can hold.

I ordered a bunny and a quilt square for my boss. He has recently lost his wife of 50 years. These items are well crafted and Allison was super easy to work with. I have ordered additional items and plan to give her more business in the future!

Thank you! The bear turned out great. Allison responded quickly to my questions about fabric and how much she needed.
Happiness is Homemade
I started It's Sew Allison in 2016 after discovering my love for sewing and handmade gifts. A dear friend asked me to make her a memory bear as a gift for a church member and that is how creating memory and keepsake animals came to be! I love creating these handmade memories and giving my customers something they can hug and cherish for years to come.
Wife, Mom, Veteran, and yes my name is Allison Allison! I love creating custom keepsakes for my customers. Each one is as unique as the individual who wore the item.
My beautiful Momma, sewer, stuffer, finisher. When she can she helps me finish your memory animals and sends them to you with extra love.
FL, United States
Doreen makes all of the custom patches I use for memory animals.

Frequently asked questions
Do you send extra fabric back with the finished product?
Yes! I understand the importance of your clothing and material. I have no need for it once your memory animal is complete.
Can you use the buttons from the garment as eyes?
Yes, if you prefer buttons over the safety eyes I normally use I will use them. I don't recommend the buttons if the animal is a baby gift. I reinforce my safety eyes with interfacing for more stability.
Custom and personalized orders
Custom order turn around times vary. I try my best to keep it within 8-10 weeks but it depends on how many memory animals you order. Larger orders and those with embroidery may take me more time. Please ask if you have questions on turn around time.
I thank you for your patience with my process. I work a full time job as well as run my Etsy shop.
Once you place an order for your memory or keepsake animal you will receive a email confirmation with my address to ship your clothing to. Please launder clothing before shipping.
Can all clothing items be used?
No, I cannot use items that are hand knitted or crocheted, silk, heavy denim, wool, or see through garments.
