Memory Heart

$ 20.00

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.

Memory bears and hearts

I am so impressed with the workmanship of this company and can’t wait to give them to my family. I ordered two bears for my adult children and two hearts for my grandchildren. I sent my husband’s shirts and the fabric is on the bears and the hearts. This is such a wonderful memory of their father and grandfather. I know this will be a very emotional day for them but also a happy one. Thank you.

Heart Ornaments

Thank you to the patchwork team for creating my beautiful hearts from my son's early clothes. I gave them as gifts to family and friends. Everyone was touched by them. They were great and I highly recommend this company and product.

Melissa T. (Hartford, US)

I ordered three hearts made with my mom’s blazer jacket. They came out perfect. I have them hanging in various places in my house. I’m so happy I got these done. They came out great. I definitely would recommend doing this with your loved ones clothing.

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.
