A smaller alternative to our memory clothes collection: This little heart is made from one or two articles of clothing. Perfect for those small pieces that might not be enough to make a bear or quilt. Measures approximately 4 inches tall x 6 inches wide and includes a convenient hanging ribbon. This is for ONE heart

Some ideas for the memory hearts:

  • use baby's onesies to make a baby keepsake
  • make one heart for each member of the family from their clothes and create your own 'family tree'
  • make keepsake ornaments for the holidays
  • make several from clothes from a loved one who has passed away and give to all the members of the family.

Great Idea!

Thank you to everyone at The Patchwork Bear who helps create one-of-a-kind keepsakes from treasured items of clothing. What a wonderful way to re-use and re-purpose items that we can't imagine getting rid of or (worse yet) throwing away! Thank you, also, for your attention to detail and willingness to work through the design. I am so excited to share these ornaments with my siblings, kids, nieces, and nephews!

Heart ornament

Great gift for loved ones! Came out beautifully using clothing from my mom. Only thing I wish is that the ribbons would have been better. All the ribbons broke after only a day. Other than that, a special gift for sure!

Memory Bear

I absolutely love this bear for my granddaughter. I have been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer & this will be held until I pass & then given to her as a memory of me.
Truly beautiful❤️

Love my memory heart

I had a memory heart made in addition to the bear I ordered. It was larger than I expected and so beautifully made. Thank you for the care and love you put into everything you make.

I'm not usually a review writer, but this is different. After my husband died, our adult children wanted a few pieces of "fingerprint jewelry" made. In searching options, I came across Patchwork Bear. Our 10 year old granddaughter wanted something of her grandfather's so we settled on a bird and a heart. (This grandchild also spoke at her grandfather's celebration of life.) She picked the shirts to be used & off they went. The bird & heart are perfect. Lovingly made, respectfully handled. We are beyond pleased.

Memory bear, memory, pillow, and hearts

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.
