graduation Keepsake bear
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" - Dr. Seuss
This bear is the perfect way to keep all your graduation memories. At 14" sitting, 18" standing, our Graduation Keepsake Bear is constructed using your gown, sash & accessories, complete with its own cap ready to hold your tassel. Get your graduation gown out of the closet and let me create a memorable keepsake of your special day. You may also send any awards pins you want attached to your bear. What did you wear under your gown? You can also include your dress or shirt to be used if you don't want to wear it again, or just tell me what color and I will do my best to include it. Include a name, date, or school name for personalizing to make your bear uniquely yours!
I carefully and lovingly design your bear using as many details as I 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 hand stitch smiles to melt your heart.
Please note that this item is a keepsake and not intended for play toy use by children.
Embroidery (+ $10)
Include a name, date, or school name for personalizing to make your bear uniquely yours. A bear paw can typically fit up to 32 characters so just keep that in mind.
Special Clothing Details

The bear requires one graduation gown and can also incorporate any sashes or cords you want included in your bear, keeping in mind that these items will be cut and recreated for your bear. You may also send any awards pins you want attached to your bear. What did you wear under your gown? You can also include your dress or shirt to be used if you don't want to wear it again, or just tell me what color and I will do my best to include it.

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, sports jerseys. 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.
