I received the patchwork bear kit . It was an awesome gift to give . Can update when we get bear back .
Love it so much going to do it again for my second grand as it is such a great treasure
Bear is fantastic. They were even able to use older very thin shirts. Just the best
I ordered the bears on a Sunday and they were in the recipients home by Wed. Thanks so much for being so attentive to the grieving children's needs.
I ❤️LOVE ❤️

I can hardly wait for my daughter to stop by on her way home from work
The bears are so my husband He always dressed very classic
They are a treasure
Thank you Susie
I absolutely love my memory bear. When I hugged it I felt such a relief and was a feeling I will never forget. It was absolutely perfect and I am looking forward to getting others for my family to keep with them
This was made for my granddaughter from clothes she picked of her recently deceased father, it is amazing, she loves, loves, loves it. Thank you for a beautiful keepsake…
My husband gave me a bear kit after I lost my mother. I selected the clothes and let the team at The Patchwork Bear put it together for me based on what they thought would look best. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and I have to admit that I cried when I opened it. My bear is absolutely perfect and a wonderful reminder of my mom along with some of her favorite outfits combined with a few of her quilting fabrics. THANK YOU!
