We believe that everyone has special clothes that hold memories of the events from when we wore them: baby's coming home outfit to your wedding dress; favorite sport jersey, grandma's favorite robe, etc.

The Patchwork Bear saves these memories and upcycles your clothes into memory bears, quilts and bags to create instant heirlooms.  We make the process simple: just place your order online, send us your clothes and we create your keepsake. Easy!

A little more about us: The Patchwork Bear was founded by Jennifer Cura who combined her skill as an architect with her love of sewing to produce a line of handmade products that are as unique and personal as those who own them. As the company grows, we remain true to the initial concept of offering original, thoughtfully designed products that are handmade with love in the USA.

"My idea of making keepsakes from favorite clothing came from my (and most parents') nostalgia for those childhood days gone by. Each of my kids had a few favorite clothes that brought back memories from the day they wore them. Rather than give the clothes away or store them in a box, I made them into a quilt and bear. It's a sentimental way to recycle all those favorite outfits into a family keepsake.

Every order is unique and we enjoy getting to know your families through the clothes you send us. The most rewarding part for me is seeing how our designs touch your lives by bringing back happy memories." - Jennifer Cura
