Hi, my name is Rachel
and I make memory bears and other keepsake animals, and custom-made cloth dolls.
I opened my Etsy shop in Spring 2017. After 9 years in a supermarket job tied to shift patterns and sometimes working both days at the weekend I needed to create a life that allowed me to be at home more often with my daughter, and to use my creative gift to create these beautiful keepsakes and dolls. I love putting together the different colour combinations, mixing the patterns and making sure that I make the most of the fabrics and clothes I am using.
This video is of the keepsake bunny that I made for my daughter using her baby clothes.

How I work:
My keepsake memory bears and other animals, are made from your baby’s precious first clothes. Your keepsake will be individually designed around the clothes you provide to ensure the best showcase for the garments you’ve entrusted me with. You will see from my reviews that my customers love my eye for detail and the care and attention I give to each beautiful creation.
My cloth dolls or rag dolls are made to my own pattern and they combine the features that my own little girl loves along with elements that I value too. These I make using fabrics in a colour of your choice. Simply let me know what colours you would like the dolls clothes, skin and hair to be along with the name of your child and I will create a unique doll to your specification. Dolls with disabilities can also be made. Just ask me for what you need.
I hope you find something here to enjoy and if you’ve got anything you’d like to see here or anything you would like to comment on please drop me a line by clicking here.
Thank you for reading.
I would love to work with you to create your own, personal and unique memory.
