Welcome to my family of beloved memory bears. I specialize in handmade memorial teddy bears crafted from your sentimental clothing. Working closely with you, I create your custom-designed memory bear with care and thoughtful attention to design. Whether it’s from a wedding dress, uniform, shirt or socks, jean or jacket-together we transform it into a personalized keepsake teddy bear that will be treasured forever. With over 23 years of experience, I take great care in providing my bear families with heirloom quality keepsakes that honor and celebrate the life of a Loved One. If you have something special you would like to preserve as a beloved memory bear, I would love to be of service.

Memory Bears for Her

Handcrafted with Care

I’ve been combining memories and teddy bears since 1999, each bear personally handmade from loved one’s clothing or other sentimental materials. From the start of your personal design to the finishing bow or button, my purpose is to create memory keepsakes that offer comfort, hope and love-all in the face of a teddy bear, made with care, stuffed with hope, and filled full with your memories.

From the start of your personal design to the finishing bow or button, TammyBears is committed to providing comforting memory bears.

  • Thought out patterns and designs individually created especially for you in your loved one’s honor.
  • Extra time is spent in securing the eyes for personality and durability.
  • Memory bear clothing is interfaced with the high quality 100% cotton stabilizer for strength, body and ability to better hold shape.
  • TammyBears are fully movable, with strong jointing at neck, arms and legs so they sit well on a chair, bed or your arms.
  • Memory bears are softly, but firmly filled with hypoallergenic recycled poly-fibers.
  • High quality threads are used to strengthen each stitch.
  • Meticulous attention to detail.

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.
