Memory Heart

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.

Quality work
Excellent turn around time
I like the option of a less expensive bear with one fabric
I would refer to friends

Very satisfied with the patchwork bear. Simple ordering process

Very pleased with the quality of my memory bunny

Transformed my daughters clothes from her first year into the cutest bunny and a beautiful quilt. The best way to recycle those beautiful clothes that I couldn’t part with!

Amazing keepsake!

A dearly loved grandfather's shirt was used to make a keepsake bear for a great grandson to be born soon. Such a wonderful way to connect generations in a family. Many thanks to the person(s) that sewed our bear!

Memory Bear Review

I couldn't be happier with my recent purchase of an original memory bear. My sister had two of these made for me/my children with the dress my late mother wore to my own wedding. I used the remainder of the dress to have a bear made for my sister's first child; the care and quality work of the Patchwork Bear team in creating this keepsake for our family was second to none. The order process was seamless and I received my order within the timeline communicated to me at purchase date. I highly recommend The Patchwork Bear and will continue to tell anyone who will listen!

Absolutely perfect

The bear is very well made. The correspondence from the company was great - they kept me informed of the status. I had some special requests and they were all honored. I'm so very, very pleased with this and would highly recommend The Patchwork bear hands down! Thanks for the most memorable keepsake ever.

Absolutely beautiful!

An amazing keepsake. Extremely well made and will be ordering another one.

Wonderful gift!

This was a wonderful gift to my wife, to commemorate her mother’s memory. The amount of time and quality of this gift is incredible. Thank you for creating such a wonderful gift for my wife!


I received my memory bears this weekend and I’m beyond happy with them! Not only is the quality amazing but they were so intentional on where to place the different patterns on the bear to make it look great!
Thank you, Patchwork Bear for helping make my grandma’s memory live on through these beautiful bears!

Priceless - Awesome Work

These bears mean the world to me after losing my Mom in 2022. The clothes chosen were 3 nightgowns that she basically lived in the last 6 months of her life. I wasn’t sure the material could be used as it was very stretchy but your designers attention to detail really shows the passion they put into each bear. Seeing these bears brought tears to my eyes as they were like having a piece of Mom back with us. I would highly recommend Patchwork Bear to anyone and everyone.

They never disappoint!

I recently ordered a memory pillow and in the past have ordered a few memory bears. I have been consistently happy with the quality of their work as well as their creativity. I wouldn’t hesitate to order again in the future.

Great product/idea

I gave this as a gift at a baby shower- so I haven’t seen the final product yet - but everyone thought it was a great idea and the new mom is looking forward to the process and the bunny when the time comes!
