a keepsake for all life's momentsGet Started
The Process is Simple
Let customers speak for us
They did such a good job making two bears out of a special blanket that had been ripped in several places. The bears are so cute and so well done. I would definitely use them again. They also made two pillows out of an afghan that my grandma had made, which had a rip in the middle.
My father in law passed earlier this year and we wanted to do something special for my mother in law. The bear turned out amazing and she loved it so much! We had the bear shipped directly to her but wanted to see the process. They went out of their way to make videos on social media so my family could see the bear before she even received it.
I love the Simple Memory Bear made with just one shirt. My father lived in the type of shirt that I sent in so it didn't matter which one. It came out beautifully and I am sure it will last me the rest of my life and beyond.
I had this Teddy bear made as a gift for my 1st granddaughter to be born the end of July. My husband passed away very suddenly from a PE after surgery. The shirt I picked was one that my daughter bought for him, so I used that for her daughter. We both cried. Im sure you hear that all the time, but Pap-Paps with us now. 💕
Could not have expected a more beautiful t-shirt quilt. My son absolutely loved his gift! It was clearly made with love and attention to detail.
I cannot express enough just how happy I am with my order. When my Grandpa passed away, I knew I couldn’t handle seeing his clothes being given away. My grandma, mom, and sisters wanted a way to keep his memories here, but without holding things in the back of the closet. When I stumbled upon the Patchwork Bear, I knew what to do. I just got 4 bears and a pillow and the quality and detail are more than I could have asked for. My grandma cried when I gave her the bear. Thank you, thank you, thank you! If anyone is hesitating, this is your sign to get one. Well worth the money!!!
My quilt is so precious and although the pictures I submitted are nice, they do not do capture how spectacular it actually is. The quilt is too large for one picture, so I folded it in half so you could see all the wonderful detail. Every square holds a special memory for me and reminds me of all the wonderful times I had with my sweet husband. When I really miss him, I wrap myself up in the quilt and it brings me some comfort. I am so glad that I found Patchwork Bear to produce this unique and functional piece of art. Jen was so wonderful to work with and really cares about the incredible keepsakes she creates.
I was so excited to receive my three bitty bears and when they finally arrived, I LOVED them all! The details they added ( even the small side pocket from the shirt of my Dad & the little shirt logo of my elder brother ‘s favorite shirt) were on the bears. It made it more meaningful. I probably should have specified that they not cover the bitty bear’s head of my Mom since the pattern of her her blouse was a bit “busy” —but all in all, they al came out pretty good plus they are so light and easy to carry even in long trips! Thank you so much Patchwork Bear! Will surely order a memory tote bag soon!
I ordered two memory quilts, one in memory of my Grandma and the other to preserve my daughter’s baby clothes. Both quilts turned out beautifully and exceeded my expectations. In my opinion, this kind of high quality work was worth every penny. I would highly recommend!
Very nicely made and what I thought it would be. Love the product!!
I was so excited to receive my bears yesterday. They were everything I wanted them to be. I ordered two original memory bears. One as a gift, one for myself. Every piece of fabric means so much to us and tells a story of our parents, they will be treasured forever.
A huge thank you! ❤️
The bear that was made for us was so cute. It was well made, done in a timely manner, sent back wrapped perfectly, and we couldn’t have been happier. Thank you.
Absolutely amazing this is my third bear and the care in the making is marvelous thank you
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!!!
