Memory bears

A Memory bear can be made from your childs favourite clothes. They are a beautiful sentiment to keep forever, holding those special memories close to you.

Amore - Handmade Memory Bears

Have you ever wondered what to do with those precious items of clothing that belonged to your children? Do you have some clothes kept in memory of a loved one that has sadly passed away? Or maybe you have some fabrics that you love, but don't know what to do with them. Whatever the reason, rather than resign them to a box in the loft, why not transform them into something special and unique, that can be proudly displayed and treasured forever.

My Memory Bears are made from clothing or fabrics that hold special memories for you and take many hours to create. Each handcrafted bear is made with the utmost care and attention to detail, at my home on the beautiful North Wales coast, not far from Snowdonia.

Busy Lizzi's

A few months ago I was dreaming of owning my own sewing business and running it from home. I mentioned this to my partner, family and friends, who all shocked me by thinking it was a good idea.

This led to more dreaming and wondering, and finally I decided that if I wanted my dream to become reality, I had to start making it reality. So this is what we did. A dedicated work area was created, where I could also keep my machines, equipment and fabric. From that moment I have never looked back.

Welcome to Millie's Memory Bears! Memory bears are a beautiful way of remembering your loved ones.

All the bears are made from treasured or favourite clothing that belonged to your loved one. They are the perfect way to remember somebody.

Each bear is made from material supplied by you such as shirts, jeans, dresses, or other items of clothing or material that you would like to use. Consider using items of clothing that reminds you of your loved one each time you see it.

Memory bears are not designed as toys but as keepsakes and can also be made to commemorate other special events.

Each Bear is individually hand crafted from your memories and clothing. These are unique heirloom quality bears that I plan, cut, sew, stuff, hand stitch and then assemble with your memories in mind.

Each Millie Bear is an original, there are no two alike. They have their own unique family tree and as in most families, the ancestry is varied and interesting.

They are made from your memories. Memory Bears are not just for remembering our deceased loved ones but can be made for any occasion such as Graduations, Birthdays, Weddings, Baptisms etc. An alternative could be a cushion cover or a lap quilt, it depends on the best way to keep the memory alive. You decide.
