MB Patchwork

ElmoreR pwbears01web

Order formIf you have several shirts or pieces of clothing and want a bit of each one captured in a memory bear, we offer a patchwork memory bear. We can use fabric from 6-12 different pieces on these. Since we have to make the patchwork fabric before we even get to cutting and sewing the bear, these do cost considerably more. However, we can save a little time in the process when making additional bears so we do offer a discount for additional patchwork teddy bears.

Pricing

Our Patchwork bear comes in two sizes. Each bear has jointed arms and legs, acrylic safety-lock eyes, plastic nose and comes with a scarf or satin ribbon.

  • $160 (plus shipping)for a 12″-14″ memory bear, $140 for each additional bear
  • $180 (plus shipping)for a 16″ memory bear,$160 for each additional bear

Add-Ons:

  • $18 Premium German Glass Eyes (These are a special order and are available in three color options: Brown, Blue and old fashioned Shoe Button Black. (Glass eyes are NOT child safe.)
  • $18 to embroider two (2) initials on one foot per bear (Because the foot pad is not that large, we are limited to two (2) initials per foot.)
  • $18 to embroider initials or name on scarf (I do not have a large, industrial embroidery machine so am limited to a 4″ space but I can put a name on each scarf)
  • Clothing: (I can make the clothing from additional clothing you send, or from the lining of a coat, or from my own selection of fabrics. the cost is the same)

$20 to make a vest $25 to make a shirt/jacket/jumper $40 to make a full custom outfit

  • $25 to insert an in-stock 18 note music box We have a limited music selection in stock (check the order form for our current tunes). If you have a specific melody you’d like, you can either supply the music box, or I can try to find it. I will charge the normal $25 insert cost plus whatever the music box costs.

Additional Information

Important!: It is important to know that memory bears made from matured fur cannot be considered toys. Although I do things to re-enforce the fur and make it stable, old fur is not overly sturdy and it simply won’t hold up to rough child play. In addition, the premium glass eyes are NOT child safe. They are blown glass on the end of a wire. Although they are securely attached to the bear, a child pulling and twisting them can break them off and they can become a choking hazard.

Michelle Darling sent me two onesies from her twin grandchildren to have a little bear made from them. With onesie bears, I try to keep the original footies as much as possible. That can lead to some different shaped feet, but that also ends up being part of the unique charm to the onesie bears. ... See MoreSee Less

Heather Meyer sent us her wedding dress to have a christening gown made for her daughter. The wedding dress was made of satin with chiffon and mesh. I normally avoid putting ruching or heavy pleating on an infant's gown because little hands can get tangled in it pretty easily. However, the ruching was the primary decorative element of the original dress so I did try to capture some of it on the bodice. We also made a matching headband.

Jordan sent her late mother's mink boa and suede outfit to have us make teddy bears for relatives. The suit was an unusual turquoise color that went really well with the rich brown of the fur.
