A smaller alternative to our memory clothes collection: This little heart is made from one or two articles of clothing. Perfect for those small pieces that might not be enough to make a bear or quilt. Measures approximately 4 inches tall x 6 inches wide and includes a convenient hanging ribbon. This is for ONE heart
Some ideas for the memory hearts:
- use baby's onesies to make a baby keepsake
- make one heart for each member of the family from their clothes and create your own 'family tree'
- make keepsake ornaments for the holidays
- make several from clothes from a loved one who has passed away and give to all the members of the family.

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.
It took me many years to go through my parents clothes that I saved that was stored in a suitcase in the back of my closet. Not knowing what to do with the clothing, I came across the patchwork bear. The best decision I have ever made. The amount of work and effort that was put in to make these items was tremendous. I will have these memories forever. Thank you so very much.
I did love work you did using my husbands shirts I know his grandchildren will enjoy having won made out of his shirt.
