Gifts That Tie Generations Together

Fur Keepsakes

This page offers some options we can make from fur garments that can be made in larger quantities at a lower price-point.  Each of these does have a minimum required order to make it possible for us to offer the options and still cover the time, materials and prep work required.  They also may have limitations on the customization and or types of fur we can use.

Friendship Bears $55 each (Minimum order of 4)

friendship-bear-01We call these our keepsake “Friendship Bears”.  They are about 9″-10″ tall.  Made in fur, they are a cute little keepsake.

Each Friendship Bear comes with shoe-button acrylic black eyes and a plastic nose with a ribbon on the neck.  Sorry, we can’t offer a choice in eye color. You can specify a general color for the ribbon we will get as close as we can but we carry a limited selection of colors (green, red, blue, yellow, purple, pink, silver-grey, wine).

  • $55 each (plus shipping)
  • Shipping is $10 for the first bear and $3 for each additional

NOTE: We can only make these out of relatively light weight furs like mink, beaver, muskrat, ermine, martin and some types of fox.  We CAN’T make these from mouton, seal, Persian lamb or most faux fur coats because the hide or material is too dense to turn at such a small size.

Order form

To order: Just print out our standard Memory Bear order form.  You can find it by printing on the Order Form box here.  Write “Friendship bear” in one of the blank spots toward the bottom right of the second page.  We are working on updating our web site this year to include on-line ordering options so please be patient.

Jennifer Francisco asked us to use her wedding dress remnants to make a custom Tree Topper Angel. The lovely lace and satin made a beautiful angel. She is about 11" or so tall. i really like making the angels. It is hard to find a consistent supplier of porcelain heads though so the heads can vary quite a bit. I like this particular one even though her head is tilted. ... See MoreSee Less

Susan Bertsch sent one of her late husband's shirts along with a tie and a piece of lace and buttons from her wedding dress to have us make a memory bear to hug. We made a larger, non-jointed bear and tried to keep him plenty hug-able. ... See MoreSee Less

Jennifer Franisco sent her wedding dress to have a baptism gown, romper combo for her future grandchildren to wear. Jennifer's dress had some lovely cut-out lace and satin with bead work. We tried to capture much of those elements in the gown with puffed sleeves and some of the beaded lace hanging over the waist. Capturing the original hem was a bit of a challenge, but worth it. For the romper, we did use some of the lace as applique on the faux vest. We also made a matching bonnet for the gown and cap for the romper and a bib.

Delores Capacchione sent us a small piece of fabric and lace from her wedding dress to have a special rose made from it. I fused the lace to the fabric to get the beauty and texture of the lace into the rose petals. ... See MoreSee Less
