Charlie bear has fixed arms and legs. They can be made from treasured clothing such as a uniform, sports kit, or the clothes of a loved one. For more info see below…
Instead of putting your precious clothing away in a bag or a box, I can make it into a gorgeous keepsake bear to have on display in your home all year round.

These memory bears bear sit 33cm tall, and measure 22cm from front to back. Charlie bears have fixed arms and legs, and are well suited as bereavement keepsakes and uniform keepsakes
For bears made from loved one’s clothing a bear can be made from one large adult t-shirt. 2 or more items give a good contrast, it depends on which clothing holds the most memories for you. I can work with almost any fabric except for very chunky knits and thick coats. If you are unsure contact me so we can discuss your items.
For baby clothes bears you will need 8-10 babygro’s or trousers or dresses or t-shirts that have colours and designs that you love.
All bears can have up to 3 names and dates embroidered onto the paws.
Once you have paid for your bear I will give you my address to post your clothes to me. Post them securely using Royal Mail’s ‘signed for’ service and I will make the clothes into a beautiful memory bear for you to keep forever.
Bears take around one week to make, message me to find out when I have availability, and your time slot will be booked when you have paid.
I will keep you updated on your bear’s progress, and send you a couple of snapshots so you can see the making. He or she will be posted back to you via Royal Mail ‘signed for’ delivery. Your bear will be packed safely and gift wrapped.
The bears are made from my own pattern. They have fixed arms and legs, black plastic safety eyes and felt noses.
Please be aware that as keepsakes cannot be CE tested they cannot be sold as toys.
