Purchased this as a baby shower gift. They are having a baby boy and his name is Levi Theodore. What better gift to give than a Levi Teddy. It turned out super cute and the couple Loved It!!
This was an amazing process and the end product was greater than we could have ever expected. Worth a million in our eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!
Far surpassed my expectations! I was extremely nervous sending off the clothes and worried about how the bear would turn out! I was blow away and everyone I have shown it to says the same thing!
Such a terrific memory! My bears are so well constructed and so artfully crafted! I now have 3 and each is different and special! Thank you!
Just received the Bereavement Bear and it turned out perfect! I couldn’t be more happy 😊
Jen and the team went above and beyond making 3 bears for me from my Mom's wedding dress and prom dresses from the 1960's that I found when clearing items out of my parents' house. My Mom passed, so I can never truly express what these bears mean to me. I hugged one and instantly started sobbing, tears of joy. It was like I was giving my Mom a hug again. Beautifully done. Absolutely Priceless.
I love it so much - the perfect teddy showcasing my baby boys precious infant clothes! Such a treasure!!!
I absolutely love my bear. I ugly cried when it came. I know have something for my future kid that will honor my dad.
MY SISTER AND I WERE SO DELIGHTED WITH OUR MEMORY BEARS MADE OF OUR GRANDMOTHERS QUILT......SO HAPPY WITH THE CONSTRUCTION, THE CHOICE OF QUILT PIECES, AND THE QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION....!!! THEY ARE SO WORTH THE COST....FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL MEMORIES WE WILL HAVE OF OUR GRANDMOTHER AS THESE BEARS PASS THRU THE GENERATIONS OF OUR FAMILY AFTER US...THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL THE MEMORY BEAR CREW....!!!
Thank you for making my the memory bear I ordered. We lost our son, and the shirt that was sent was his favorite shirt, and his mother’s favorite shirt. So she wanted something that the can have close and the team a patchwork made it happen. THANK YOU!
I'm not usually a review writer, but this is different. After my husband died, our adult children wanted a few pieces of "fingerprint jewelry" made. In searching options, I came across Patchwork Bear. Our 10 year old granddaughter wanted something of her grandfather's so we settled on a bird and a heart. (This grandchild also spoke at her grandfather's celebration of life.) She picked the shirts to be used & off they went. The bird & heart are perfect. Lovingly made, respectfully handled. We are beyond pleased.
I sent in fabric for 5 dogs that was organized in bags for my 5 children plus some extra to add to each dog. Every one of them was PERFECT. Thanks you from the bottom of my heart. This will be a remarkable reminder, for them, in memory of their dad.
This was such an easy process and worth every penny ! We ordered 4 bears for our kids who lost their uncle (my brother) and we are so unbelievably happy with how the bears turned out. THANK YOU !!!
Love, love, love the bear. Absolutely beautiful. Thank-you so much. My daughter is going to love it. I highly recommend this company. Outstanding work.
This will be my 3rd bear from you and you did not disappoint again. They are so cute and a great keepsake to remember my mom with her summer bathrobe that we remember her wearing. My sister and I now have something to remember her by. Thank you!
