Welcome to The Patchwork Bear! Home of the original, award-winning Memory Clothes Bear.

We specialize in up-cycling YOUR favorite clothes into handmade patchwork bears and quilts. Like favorite photos, we believe clothes hold special memories: baby's first outfit, game-winning sports uniform, college t-shirts, wedding dresses. The Patchwork Bear will turn them into a custom keepsake for you. Made in our Princeton, NJ studio, each product we create is handmade with love and feature thoughtful details and complimentary personalization.


The Keepsake Collection Send us your favorite clothes and we will transform them into a keepsake patchwork bear or keepsake quilt! The award-winning Keepsake Clothes Memory Bear is also available in a convenient kit, perfect for gift giving. Just place clothes in the box provided and ship to The Patchwork Bear. In 2-4 weeks, you will receive a custom bear made entirely from your clothes. Perfect for baby/kids clothes, t-shirts, school/sports uniforms, special occasion clothing, even a loved one's clothes who has passed away (memory bear).


The Signature Collection Our vintage-styled bears are also available in quality, designer fabrics. From buttery-soft minky to designer cotton; bright modern prints to classic oxford, the Signature Patchwork Bears are ready to ship and perfect for gift-giving. Coordinating Textured Blankets and Mini Loveys make a great gift set. Complimentary personalization available.
