About Nancy

I’ve been sewing since I was a small girl, and over the years I have sewed almost anything I needed.

Now I sew what I want, and I’d love to create a huggable memory for you!

I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.

Thank you for stopping by my page!

What is a Memory Bear?

These little guys are Memory Bears.

A Memory Bear is a huggable memory created using re-purposed clothing from your cherished loved ones. 

A Memory Bear can be made from one men’s shirt, sized medium or larger, or one women’s shirt sized large or larger. You can send a couple of shirts if you want them mixed together. I can use youth sizes, women’s x-small, small, or medium, and men’s small, but I will need two shirts to create each bear.

Looking for Ideas on Clothing for your Memory Bear?

Here are some great ideas on types of adult clothing to use!

-Button down shirts

-T-shirts must send 2 (please keep in mind that if there is a large logo on your t-shirt, that it may not all fit on your bear)

-Golf/Polo shirts

-Flannel shirts

-Fleece items

-Sweatshirts (please keep in mind that if there is a large logo on your sweatshirt, that it may not all fit on your bear)

-Long bath robes (fleece or flannel)


-Skirts (knee length or longer)

-Corduroy or Denim items

-Uniform shirts


Using Shirt(s) for your Bear:

1 Shirt Per Bear
Men's Medium
Men's Large
Men's X-Large (and up)
Women's Large
Women's X-Large (and up)
2 Shirts per Bear
Men's Small
Women's X-Small
Women's Small
Women's Medium
All Youth Sizes

Materials that can’t be used:

-loose knit items

-handmade crochet or knit items

-sheer or lace items

-silky or thin satin items (like night gowns or blouses)


Additional Information

I do use your item’s buttons for embellishment and a small piece of felt for the nose. I use my own buttons for the eyes, I try to use any emblem or logo from the shirt if it will fit onto your bear (unless specified not to). With shirts that are stretchy, shifty or worn thin, I iron in an easy knit stabilizer to help control stretching, maintain shape and strengthen weak or thin material. And the neck is double stitched (since it’s the part that gets the most lovin’ 😉).

NOTICE: While every care is taken to make your Memory Bear safe and strong, it is intended as a keepsake only. Should you wish to give this to a child for gentle play, that is your decision, and therefore your responsibility to supervise their play, as small buttons are used.
