Military Keepsake Bear

Our military keepsake bear is a lovely memento of your time in service, or to remember a loved one who you've lost too soon. We can use camouflage clothing or other items that you send us, or we can use our own. Either way, we can add various details such as regimental badges and rank slides.

As well as being made from your material, we can add personalised embroidery to the feet of your bear for an extra special touch. Your military memory bear will be handmade by our expert team of memory makers, ensuring you get a beautiful, unique bear that will be treasured forever.

The Daddy Dress

The Daddy Dress® is a totally unique gift.  Your little girl's dress made from her Daddy's favourite old shirt.  This is a must-have for any little girl.  We take one of her daddy's shirts that are a bit worn and transform it into a beautiful a-line shirt dress with gorgeous capped sleeves and little pocket detail.  

This dress will be treasured forever and is the perfect gift for any hard-to-buy-for man.  Upcycling at its very best. Select the size you'd like, go through our easy-peasy checkout then get your confirmation email.  Send the shirt to us with your order reference and we do the rest!

Ashes Pocket Memory Bear

When a loved one passes and we get given their ashes, it's often difficult to know what to do with them or where to keep them. Our special memory bear includes a pocket where you can keep a small sample of the ashes, alongside the fact you also have a beautiful bear made with their most beloved and treasured clothes.

Easy to keep, the ashes pocket bear means that your loved one will always be close by your side. Please do not send us the ashes.  We will make the bear from your clothing and we will create a small internal pouch at the back of the bear, which you can open and close with the velcro fastening. 

The Daddy Shirt

After lots of requests for a boy's version and the huge popularity of our Daddy Dress we now do the Daddy Shirt!  Your son's shirt made from his Daddy's (or Mummy's or Grandad's) favourite old shirt.  

This is a must-have for any little lad.  We take one of his daddy's shirts that are a bit worn and transform it into a classic short-sleeve shirt with a grandad collar.  Upcycling at its very best.

Cardigan / Jumper Memory Bear

Sometimes a single item of clothing can bring memories flooding back, and that's why our cardigan or jumper memory bear is so popular. It has all the same features as our classic bear, but we encourage customers to send us a particular jumper or cardigan, which we then turn into a smaller version for the bear.

If a loved one has recently passed away or you've got treasured clothes that you don't want to throw away, this keepsake bear is a lovely solution. We find it's a particularly loved item to remember grandparents or parents and can be loved by adults and children alike.

Grandad Keepsake Cushion

Our Grandad keepsake cushion is a really lovely way to hold Grandad, or another loved one, close. People often have very special items that they struggle to know what to do with, and this cushion is a beautiful way to cherish those memories and maintain a reassuring physical bond.

These memory cushions can be made from any single shirt, top, jumper, cardigan or t shirt, and we find this works brilliantly for loved ones that have been lost, or who are just far away. No matter who you're trying to remember, we can make any garment into a cushion that you can treasure forever.

Personalised Teddy Bear with Keepsake Shirt

Our lovely personalised teddy bears are a lovely gift or keepsake, and a great way to remember a treasured shirt that you can't bear to part with. Whether bought as a gift for a special occasion or to remember someone who's no longer with us, this memory bear is guaranteed to be treasured forever.

For this bear, we must have an item with a collar and buttons so we can make a matching shirt for your bear. Whether it's mummy daddy's old work shirt, or grandad's favourite shirt that brings back memories, we can make one that looks just like it.

Military Memory Blanket

If you've spent time in the military but don't know how to remember and treasure your service, our military memory blankets are a great choice. We can make your blanket out of British MTP fabric, old uniforms or materials, or patches that you've collected along the way.

Handmade by our small team, we do our best to incorporate all of the special parts of the clothing you submit so that you receive a memory blanket that you're delighted with. Backed and edged with fleece fabric, they're guaranteed to be a treasured keepsake for years to come.
