Your Memory Bear Maker

Hi, I am Tammy. Thank you for visiting today. I made my first memory bear in 1998, it was a short time after the passing of our mama. So very much wanting to hug her again, I embraced her plush coat and soon transformed it into a special memory teddy bear, a soft comfort I could touch. Despite being born with only one hand, I taught myself to make Mama’s bear-and since then I’ve been combining hugs, memories, and teddy bears for people like me…who just want to hug and hold their loved one close. This soon became my full time purpose and TammyBears’ website was then established in 2000 to provide this special service to all. Read more about TammyBears.

What Our Bear Families are Saying

Tammy, Once again you have exceeded all expectations!! I received my son’s Eagle Shirt Bear today and I am amazed at your skill and creativity. The bear is just beautiful. You are without doubt, the best in the business. You brought a smile to this grieving mother’s face! Don’t stop doing what you do!! The family will enjoy this for many years in the future. We appreciate you.

You sent me back the scraps, and I am going to send you another set to do the same bears with just different material. Thank you for giving me back just a piece of my son..I know it is just his clothing, but I know you know how much this means..thank you a million times over....you are amazing.

I am beyond happy with the bear you created for my daughter in honor of her son that we lost all to soon. Thank you so very much, Tammy! The bear is just perfect!

Couldn't be happier with Nana's memory bear!!!! Best made bear I've ever seen. I was excited that the arms and legs moved but had no idea the head moved as well!!!! What a great way for my son to remember his Nana!!! It's a shirt we saw her wear all the time and my son says it still smells like her. Can't thank Tammy enough.
