Quilt Direct is thrilled to be supplying threads to Alice at Bears and Bows.

Bears and Bows is a small business specialising in handmade, high quality, personalised memory bears and keepsakes.

Bears & Bows make bears in two sizes – big memory bear (approx 45cms) and baby memory bears (approx. 35cms). These bears are all lovingly made from treasured items of clothing – a loved ones favourite shirt or tie, a football strip, even hats and scarves. –  and they don’t have to be bears! Bunnies are very popular, but if you have something else in mind, maybe a giraffe or a dolphin, just ask.

The big bears can be made up to precise weights, so you can have bear the exact birth weight of your child made out of those first, very special baby clothes!


Visit the Bears & Bows website and have a look at some of the gorgeous bears they’ve made.
