After having made a bunch of bitty bears, i got used to that size, however when my larger bear arrived, I loved it just as much! Thank you for capturing my daughters dance memories through your bears!

Such a well made and adorable bear. I sent a few pieces of baby clothes and a t shirt and they blended both better than I expected. I really love my bear and very happy with the results.

The work was very high quality, and was within the time line provided when the order was placed. However, when we were approaching the estimated completion date, I requested a status update 4 separate times and never received a response. Everything else was very well done but the lack of communication was disappointing.

So happy you love the way your order turned out. I apologize for the lack of communication while making your bear. As a very small team, most of our time is spent designing/sewing the memory bears so we can complete them within the estimated time frame. During busy production times, we aren't always as timely responding to emails. Communication is key to what we do and I appreciate your review and reminder of this. We will prioritize improving our response times in the future. Thank you!

I love my bear! It was made with T-shirts from the Coast Guard Festival in Grand Haven, MI. It is an event that has many wonderful memories for our family. I’ll be ordering more bears for my family!!

So in love with these memory bears! The quality is amazing, I can not believe how perfect they are. I sent in a lot of material that was all 14+ years old, different textures and different thickness.. I was unsure how well they would go together. But they all went to together wonderfully. I am so impressed. If I ever need another keepsake like this I will definitely come back to the Patchwork Bear!
