Before cutting up your precious clothing we will send you an illustration of how your clothing will be used to create your teddy.

Caring for your teddy 

We recommend that our teddies are hand washed and dried naturally. Do not tumble dry. The stuffing is 100% non-allergenic, siliconized polyester so whilst they can be machine washed the finished teddy can be delicate as they are often made from well worn clothing. 

Personalise text

All teddies can be personalised with embroidery on one or both of the feet.

Some of our popular messages are :

"These are clothes I used to wear, hold me close and I'll be there." 

"Never goodbye, Only see you later"

"Your wings were ready, but my heart was not" 

These are just examples, you can have anything that you would like. 

Please note that unless requested otherwise, fabric scraps will be disposed of. Any unused items are always returned.

*All our custom-made memory bears and bunnies are made as a keepsakes & not intended to be used as a toy*




Types of Clothing: 

We want to provide you with a teddy that’s special to you and made from your most treasured clothing, so we are able to work with a wide range of fabrics. If you send delicate or stretchy knitted garments, then we often have to back them with another fabric to provide stability. Its best to avoid leather, swimwear, rainwear and chunky knits. Please bear in mind when selecting your garments, that choosing similar fabrics and colours will give you a better well-balanced teddy.


Number of Items: 

For baby keepsake teddies we suggest you send 4 - 6 baby grows or 3 - 4 items of older child’s clothing. If sending premature or newborn baby grows, we will need around 10 items. Its better to send to much rather than too little, any unused items will be returned along with your teddy. 

For Adult Keepsake teddies we only require 1 decedent sized item of clothing but if you prefer the patchwork style then please sent up to 5 garments.


Highlight your favourite items: Please pop a little note in with your clothing letting us know which are your favourite items and if there are certain details you would like included in a particular way. We will do our best to make your favourite items prominent in the finished teddy and adhere to any special requests where sent, although it may not always be possible. If sending more items than we require please do let us know if you want a little bit of everything used otherwise, we will try to limit how many garments we cut up and sent back any uncut items. 


Quality: We understand that the most loved, favourite items are often the most worn but please bear in mind the more worn and washed something is the more delicate it becomes. This isn’t a problem as we can always put a backing on to strengthen these fabrics but it’s important to note that the finished teddy may look a little more stretched and will be a little more delicate so you will need to treat them with extra care.   

How do I send them in? Once you have placed your order you will receive a confirmation email with postage instructions. Please follow the instructions! It is really important to make sure the order reference, senders address and contact details are on the outside of the parcel.
