Wedding dress

After 40 years of storing my dress I decided to have it made into a bear and pillows. So glad I did. Love them all.

Amazing work honoring my mom

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 tool a while to get my items back but it was SO WORTH IT. Everything came out so great. Thank you Patchwork Bear!

When I opened the box and saw the pillows I just started to cry as I visualized my husband wearing those shirts. Both pillows are absolutely beautiful 😍

The best Mother's day gift ever

My mother after 62 years was going to throw her wedding dress out and her husband's wedding suit because she no longer had room to store it and could not justify in keeping it now she has it sitting on her couch as a reminder of happier times

Love ❤️ my memory pillows!

I ordered two memory pillows. I am so pleased with the pillows that have been made. I love the way the clothes I sent in were used to make two beautiful pillows, the quality of the workmanship, and the care that went in to making my pillows. Thank you so much. These pillows are a keepsake that I will treasure ♥️ By the way, in the past I have ordered memory bunnies for my granddaughters and memory bears for my grandsons and an itty bitty bear for me. I love them all!! Thank you for offering this beautiful service to help remember a loved one.
