We can make the perfect bear for you …
Years ago when going through an old trunk that had been sent back from New Zealand, my mother’s place of birth, we came upon a length of beautiful fabric that she had, as a young woman, made into a dress. The fabric had been in the trunk for more than three decades and I was reluctant to put it back and forget about it, so I decided to use it to make a bear. I gave it to my mother, who was thrilled and touched. It evoked countless memories for her, many that had been forgotten in the annals of time.
I realised then that we could design and make bears from all sorts of precious things. Since then, we have made bears from wedding veils, pieces of children’s clothing and old jeans. We can embroider a name or date on a bear to commemorate a special occasion, and much more …
We are also able to renovate much loved bears, that have become old and worn, bringing them back to life for you to treasure again.
Denim Bear… this bear was made from a child’s favourite pair of jeans, much loved and now transformed into a forever keepsake.
Wedding Bears … we are often approached to create commemorative bears. Wedding fabrics are wonderful to work with, these bears recreated a very special moment for the bride & groom, embroidered with their names and the date of their wedding day.
Three Bears … made from a thick pile fur coat which belonged to a mother and her mother before her. We were approached to make three bears for her children … re-purposed, up-cycled and passed on.
Tartan Bears … a family tartan was used to create a collection of bears and hares as Christmas gifts for the youngest generation of a Scottish family.
