Remembrance Bears, special ways to remember a lost loved one.

'Each bear has a story'. 

This was a quote from a customer recently who was absolutely right. Each bear does have a story, especially Remembrance Bears. Made from sentimental clothing, they can help through the grief of loosing a loved one. 

Of course its lovely to make bears using baby clothes and even Wedding dress bears, but somehow, Remembrance bears are that little bit more special, and I love making them.

I recently made a bear for a lovely lady. Her Nanny had just passed away and she asked me to make two special Remembrance bears for her using Nanny's clothes.
I do feel very humbled to be even asked.
Anyway, the clothes arrived and I started making the bears, using a dress and a cardigan. 

 Here was the finished bear:

Remembrance bear made from the clothes of a lost loved one. I was even more humbled when she sent me her own picture of her Nanny in the clothes I had made the dress from. 

Even though I make these bears, I am somewhat detached from the person I am making them for and detached from the clothes that they once belonged to, this photo really made what I do so worthwhile and the bear becomes real.

A follower of mine recently posted this on my Facebook wall, which sums Remembrance bears up perfectly:

"There is no better way to hold onto someone you love for eternity. It is the closest bond in your heart that is held in your hands."

It is my pearl wedding anniversary in a month and my daughter has decided to send off my wedding dress to make into a keepsake wedding bear. I cannot wait to see the result as I did not have a very expensive dress but there happens to be 2 pearl buttons on the waistband which what a 30th anniversary represents ,much better than a pearl necklace.
