Description

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 pouch will not hold much.  If you want a slightly bigger pouch then opt for our larger bear (this will still only contain a small portion of ashes or other keepsake items).  The pocket can be also be used for any other keepsake items (such as hair, jewellery etc).

Sizes

We only need 1 - 2 two items of adult clothing to make each bear, but feel free to send us more if you want them to be included.

  • Standard - approximately 30cm tall. We suggest you send 4 - 6 baby grows or 1 - 4 items of older child’s clothing.
  • Large - approximately 40cm tall. We suggest you send 8 - 10 baby grows or 2 - 6 items of older child’s clothing.

If you are having a large animal from baby items, we need at least two items of slightly longer clothing (e.g. a bigger baby grow, a little blanket etc) as some of the pattern pieces are quite big. If you only have smaller items that is fine, but please be aware we may need to use more seams).

While our keepsakes can be machine washed at 40 degrees, we would recommend that they are hand washed and dried naturally. Do not tumble dry. The stuffing is 100% CE tested polyester. 

As these can be delicate items, often made from very well-worn clothes, they can not be CE tested and therefore come with the following: Warning: This product is not suitable for persons under the age of 14 years. Pattern is by LoveKeepCreate Ltd.

More Details & How It Works

Once you’ve placed your order, you’ll receive an email telling you how to send us your clothes. Once we receive your clothes, it takes approximately eight weeks to get your finished keepsake back to you, unless you choose one of our Express Options at the checkout - we can make them in as little as one week. If there is a special date you need it for, please do make a note of this when you checkout or send in the clothes.

If you have got a lot of special requests and additions then, depending on the complexity, we may contact you to request an additional payment to cover the cost of making these.

Our images are to display what can be achieved with your clothes. All of our bears use the same pattern, and can be made from any clothes that you send us, whether baby, child or adult.

My bear is beautifulReviewed by Teresa.thomas on 20 Oct 2021

I wasn’t sure about getting a bear but thought I might have regrets if I didn’t. When the bear arrived I thought he was lovely and very well made. Within 24 hours I knew I had done the right thing. I felt such love and peace when looking at my bear and thinking of my husband wearing his favourite shirts. I know my journey of grief will continue with its ups and downs but my bear will be in sight and make me smile. I have used the pocket as a place to keep my husbands necklace. Thank you so much for my beautiful bear.
