a keepsake for all life's momentsGet Started
The Process is Simple
Let customers speak for us
I don’t even know where to start. Thank you, so much for thoughtfully crafting a bear out of my sweet angel’s clothes. I was anxious about sending such precious pieces in the mail, but I’m so glad I entrusted patchwork… the attention to detail far exceeded my expectations. I had written a note about how lions are so significant to us, and I cried when I saw that each ear had a little lion on it. As we welcome our newest baby boy, I’m so grateful to be able to share this bear with him along with the stories and memories we have of his big brother. A million times, thank you 💙🌈
I received an ABSOLUTELY special and beautifully made one shirt Teddy Bear. I am so happy with all that I have received and many special people have a gift to cherish. I HIGHLY recommend this company. From start to finish excellent service!!!
We Love it so much .patch work did a awesome work on our memory bear of our daughter ❤️
I bought a bereavement bear but also purchased this one as well. I wanted something made just from my dad’s flannel that he always wore. It could not have come out any better, it was beyond my expectations! They even added a little pocket, it is so cute and I will treasure it forever! Thank you guys, so much! I highly recommend this company, and I tell everybody about it….I know this will not be my last purchase from you, you all are true angels for what you do! Forever grateful!
I am so amazed and thankful for what you did with my dad‘s clothes. It couldn’t have turned out more. Perfect! It is something that I will treasure for the rest of my life, and it was worth every penny! Please continue to do what you do, you guys will always hold a special place in my heart! Thank you so much
My daughter left this world to dwell in a better place. Having this bear brings comfort to me. The premise is great, wonderful craftsmanship. Love, love, love my patchwork bear.
My mother after 62 years was going to throw her wedding dress out and her husband's wedding suit because she no longer had room to store it and could not justify in keeping it now she has it sitting on her couch as a reminder of happier times
After 30 years of marriage it was time to do something. I am so happy with the quilt.
can't even tell you how happy i was to receive my bears. they are darling. just perfect. the quality of the workmanship is top notch and i felt like i had a piece of my mom back when i opened the box. thank you, thank you, thank you.
I'm so glad I spent the money for this memory bear in honor of my late Grandma! I sleep with it every night.
It took me many years to go through my parents clothes that I saved that was stored in a suitcase in the back of my closet. Not knowing what to do with the clothing, I came across the patchwork bear. The best decision I have ever made. The amount of work and effort that was put in to make these items was tremendous. I will have these memories forever. Thank you so very much.
I love my bear made from a single Tshirt. Highly recommend!!
I had 3 quilts made. All came back looking great.
There were shirts with patches, they were reinforced.
They followed the suggestions I made. I'm so happy I got these made.
I ordered two memory pillows. I am so pleased with the pillows that have been made. I love the way the clothes I sent in were used to make two beautiful pillows, the quality of the workmanship, and the care that went in to making my pillows. Thank you so much. These pillows are a keepsake that I will treasure ♥️ By the way, in the past I have ordered memory bunnies for my granddaughters and memory bears for my grandsons and an itty bitty bear for me. I love them all!! Thank you for offering this beautiful service to help remember a loved one.
The team nailed the theme and overall look of the two memory bears! I purchased for my grandchildren who recently lost their mother. The team added a sweet message on the paws that the family lives by, "Karey On". You filled my heart with joy knowing the happiness it will bring my grandkids. You truly make a difference in people's lives.
Also, the sending of items was very easy and the communication with the company excellent. You get an AAAA for protecting treasured items and creating a lifetime of memories.
