Baby Keepsake Bear
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" - Dr. Seuss
A smaller bear, to remember first moments.
This petite bear is 9" sitting, 14" standing, (as opposed to our Classic Keepsake Bear which is 14" sitting, 18" standing) and perfect for sweet baby memories. I can use baby sleepers, baby blankets, a favorite outfit, dedication/baptism outfit or just about any fabric item you can dream. Elect for embroidery and we can add special details like a birth date, weight or name to the foot of your bear.
I carefully and lovingly design your bear using as many details as we can from your clothing items to preserve your precious memories. I use high quality notions, including movable arms and legs, safety eyes and noses, and smiles to melt your heart.
Please note that this item is a keepsake and not intended for play toy use by children.
Embroidery (+ $10)
Consider adding special details like names, dates or messages to your bears foot. A bear paw can typically fit up to 32 characters so just keep that in mind.
Special Clothing Details
Hoping to include a specific detail from one of your items in to the bear? I'm happy to try and accomodate, just include a note on the order form and we'll chat it through.
The Baby Keepsake Bear typically takes 6-9 infant sized items (based on a 3-6 month sizing), or 2-4 toddler sized items.
Each bear takes on its own shape and personality largely based on the fabric used. Stretchy fabrics result in rounder shapes. I stabilize all fabrics with interfacing to control stretching and add durability to your bear. Suitable materials are cotton or cotton blends as in shirts or dresses. Knits such as t-shirts, onesies & pajamas. Pants, jackets, light sweaters, even a favorite blanket. I can use most anything except swimwear, leather, fur, bulky knits or super thick fabrics. If you have any question about an item you are considering using, please don't hesitate to reach out.
I purposely do not operate like an online store because I like to have a conversation before starting construction on your special one of a kind keepsake.
