Let customers speak for us
You did a wonderful job. Love, love, love little purple bear. My girlfriends little granddaughter will love this bear.
The transformation from dress to quilt is stunning and perfectly done! I am in love with the final product! The care and precision taken is remarkable and makes the keepsake so much better than just preserving it. Thank you for this glorious treasure you made!
Love our bear! We sent blankets from our dog who passed away and it came just as pictured! We love it! Thank you Patchwork Bear
This is my second best from the patchwork bear and both beats have turned out perfect. I love them both.
I am over then moon happy with my Patchwork Bear!! The fact that it’s made from ties my Daddy use to wear is amazing!! I also appreciate being able to customize the bear which made me feel like a part of the process. My bear is so beautifully and artfully made, a friend suggested I place it in a glass case. I am so happy and grateful for the care that was taken in making my bear. I wish I could hug the person who made my bear. I’ve been in a constant state of sadness and getting my bear has totally lifted my spirits!! I absolutely love this bear ❤️
I ordered 3 bears with clothes that were my Mom’s who passed away in January! Two of the bears were made out of the pajamas she wore in her final days and one ( that was for my son - his mama) was the outfit she wore to his wedding! She will be missed dearly but the bears bring back memories of her daily!
I’m blown away! The TWA bear you made from my aunt’s TWA uniform scarves is absolutely gorgeous! I’m so grateful to you and your team!
The bear is a treasure!

Love the cute little Memory Birds, perfect for sharing with family and friends.
Awe, I loved the mini keepsake bears. They turned out very nice. Thank you.
I had 2 pillows and 2 Christmas stockings made out of my mother in laws clothes. They came out absolutely beautiful!! My husband loves the pillows so much! My daughters were so happy with the Christmas stockings that we hung up. My sister also had teddy bears made from her husbands clothes that she could not part with. I definitely recommend the patch work bear for anyone who is looking for something special made out of their loved one’s clothes.
I’m so pleased with my Bereavement Bear! When I hold my bear & feel the material from my husbands clothes it gives me such comfort & I do feel he is here with me. It brings tears to my eyes & joy to my heart.
