Memory Bears-Fur

Soft and Squishy Non-Jointed Bears Now Available

nj fur andfabric02We now offer soft, squishy, non-jointed Memory Bears!

By popular request, I’ve developed a non-jointed memory bear pattern for those who want a softer and more “squishy” bear to hug.  These happy, huggable bears are intended to bring comfort, joy and good memories.

Our signature bear has jointed arms and legs. Joints allow you to move the arms and legs up and down and allows you to position a bear. They also allow the placement of the legs so that the bear can sit on its own. However, to accomodate the joints, we have to stuff the bears firmly so, although they are cuddly, they aren’t soft and “squishy” cuddly.

By creating a non-jointed bear, we don’t have to stuff it so firmly so we can make a much softer bear. Our non-jointed bear is not only great for hugging, it is going to be a bit more durable for younger children to play with and much more cuddly to crawl into bed with and hug at night. On top of that, we are able to offer it at a lower price than our jointed bears.

We are currently only offering one size. Our 16″ non-jointed fabric bear is $75 each and our fur-based non-jointed bear is $95 each. Shipping is additional.

Many Furs Make Lovely Memory Bears

AndersonP 01webPeggy Anderson sent a couple of fur coats that were once her mother’s and her grandmother’s to have bears made for relatives. There were three coats. One was mink, one was mouton and the other was Persian lamb. We decided to make one bear from each coat that was out of that fur and the other two bears we mixed the furs.

There was enough fur to make these our larger, 18″ bears.

Mink Memory Bears in Two Colors

Jenny Seta came in and dropped off couple of furs to have these six 16 inch bears made to give to grandchildren for Christmas.  Since the furs were different colors, I chose to use the lighter (smaller) fur as accents to the darker fur.

Five Fur Bears for the Family

Wanda sent her mother’s muskrat fur coat to have five bears made for herself and her siblings. The gave us a little bit of a challenge but we were able to stabilize the hide enough to get the five bears she wanted.

Memory Bears from Mom and Dad’s Coats

Ann Day sent her mother’s sued coat and Dad’s jacket to have bears made for her and her siblings. The sued coat had a collar of mink. We mixed and matched the materials from both garments to make these four memory bears. The bodies are made of suede and the paw pads and ear pads are made of fabric.  Ann wanted one bear to have a vest.

Black Mink Real Fur Memory Bears

Matt Colaianni sent her late mother’s fur coat to have these four bears made for family.  The coat was in good shape and this mink is very soft so these bears are super huggable.  We made one side of the scarves from the coat lining but decided to add color to the other side of the scarf because everything was looking a bit too dark.  Unfortunately, black mink is very hard to photograph so this photo really doesn’t do them justice.

Bear and Dogs From Fur Coats

MaherS Bear01MaherS Scotties01MaherS dog01Sara Maher sent us three fur coats to have a large bear and three dogs made. The dogs were a bit of a challenge. She initially wanted to Scott Terriers and a Sheltie but the fur didn’t lend itself to making a Sheltie so we ended up with a more standard Dog.

Cindy Gresham sent her wedding dress to have a baptism outfit made for her coming grandchild and future grandchildren to wear.

Cindy's dress was made of lovely satin and chiffon with corded lace on the bodice. The original dress had the chiffon over all of the satin but I thought the satin was pretty and should have a chance to shine so I designed the skirt to use the chiffon in a soft, split panel that allowed the satin to peak through.

We also made a couple of kerchiefs, a bouquet sash and a corsage.
