It is wonderful. My husband died a few months ago and it sure a comfort to be able to hug the bear made from his favorite shirts. Thanks for the idea and bring a good feeling to a grieving widow
With so many companies/people doing memory bears it was hard to decide on who I trusted. I took a chance and I am so glad I did, when I opened the box I was thrilled of the outcome. It was hard enough to send off my partners clothes but to see the results and knowing my nieces will have these to remember their Aunt is priceless. Thank you for taking such care in making these treasures ❤️❤️
I sent some of my daughters baby clothes I kept as keep sakes and decided to get them made into bunnies which they can see and cherish. I am thrilled with them they have turned out better than I ever imagined. The workmanship is outstanding and this is something they will keep for a very long time. I would highly recommend this company. Thank you very much.
Sent to my daughter as a keepsake of her father. She cried for a while upon receiving it. Loves it.
I looked for days after my loved one passed for a company that could make a bear. I was very nervous about sending anything but I emailed with my initial questions and they replied quickly.
I was given consistent updates on my bear even after it left their facility.
My bear is perfect and I recieved it just in time for my wedding.
I will definitely be a returning customer
My family will absolutely love these hearts. Wonderful workmanship.
Patchwork Bear did a fabulous job making 2 bears from my great grandchildren’s onesies! It was well worth having them make them, rather than me, even though I can sew. I did everything I asked…putting a fire truck on the front from one outfit, adding a pocket to the front on another Bear. They are just so perfect. I highly recommend their work! I will definitely use them again for another gift for a great grandchild on the way.
I knew I didn’t want to preserve my dress and I’m all about function. I wanted something that could be enjoyed daily and a reminder of such a special day and how I felt wearing that dress. I explored a lot of options and was elated when I found The Patchwork Bear. I was beginning to think what I wanted didn’t exist until I found this company. It was well worth the wait, beautifully crafted and the details of the dress were not lost. I’m so grateful and will enjoy this beautiful display everyday.
The quilt turned out amazing. Above and beyond my expectations.
Patchwork Bear transformed one of my mom's tshirts into a pillow for my daughter as well as a very expensive handmade sweater of my mom's into a Christmas stocking. Both turned out AMAZING. My daughter loves the pillow and they followed the wishes I sent exactly. The stocking is so beautiful. They even used some of the trim and buttons from the sweater to accent the stocking. It is very well done and is exactly what I was hoping for. It took a while to get my items back but it was SO WORTH IT. Everything came out so great. Thank you Patchwork Bear!

There are not enough words to describe how happy I am with my bears! After losing my mom less than a year ago, it wasn’t easy putting her clothes in a box and shipping them off. First came the email that let me know they arrived (thank you!).. but nothing prepared me for what i saw when i opened that box. Brought to tears, they were the most beautiful bears i have ever seen. Can’t even begin to thank you for the care you showed my mom’s favorite shirts and the absolutely amazing craftsmanship to create these keepsakes for me and my family that we will cherish forever. Thank you thank you thank you! ❤️
I was very PLEASED with my bear that you made, when I wrote checking about it a couple of times, you always got back to me. Thank You so much!!!
I received the 2 memory quilts made from my husbands dress shirts. They came out terrific. Outstanding quality.
I received them today the day before his 3rd anniversary of his passing.
