Baby Blanket Bear

 
 

 
 
This was yet another special bear to make. My cousin graduated High School this year. Her mother wanted to surprise her with a fond memory of her childhood. So she had me construct this bear for her out of her favorite baby blanket. Funny thing is that she happened to have two of them. I would have to say this one was super fun to make. I was covered with all these little critters and I had to make sure I got most of them on the bear. It was presented to my cousin on her graduation party. Her mother had not seen it until that day, so the surprise was for both of them. Tears of joy were everywhere in the house. I love being able to create a smile with my bears. Even tears are great too!

Taekwondo Bear



 This bear is a very unique bear. It was made specially for my friends and family at Integrity Martial Arts. I have belonged to the school now for over 5 years. I will tell you, this is the best martial arts school. The instuctors are very helpful and informative. I am proud to say that I belong to a wonderful family. A bear like this will cost $70. If you are interested and have an old uniform, I do prefer to use the thinner one instead of the one used for the leadership class.

WELCOME TO LADY BEARS: MEMORY BEARS

We welcome you to browse our website and let your imagination be your guide.
We can create a Memory Bear for you out of just about any material.

These are just a few examples of what bears can look like out of simple materials around your home.
Towels from your favorite Beach vacation, perhaps an out of style Christmas dress, maybe that crazy shirt from your Caribbean cruise, maybe something from a pillow, bedspread, or your kids favorite blanket.

 There are so many different sources for your imagination and there is always a Holiday:  Christmas, Valentines Day, Birthdays, New Years, St. Patricks Day, Easter, just to name of few.

If you see one of the bears posted that you would like, we can create them from our materials.
We are environmentally conscious and try to use re-claimed materials on all our bears.

Thank You for your interest and we can't wait to create your Memory Bear by Monica.

STRIPES!

In Loving Memory...






As a present for my father, I picked out a shirt of Oscars. Being that he has a picture of them together, I picked the shirt from the pic. Not realizing what I was doing, my father also picked out some shirts that he wanted made into bears. Once he asked me, I had to show him the shirt I picked out. I end up making his pick into bears also for Oscar's brother and niece.




Stripes, stripes, everywhere.



Stripes are difficult to work with, but still turn out great. Bears such as these would start at $50, plus shipping.

MICKEY MEMORY BEAR




Here he is the Mickey Bear. This one was made from a blanket and pillow with Mickey Mouse on it. Being that it was a picture, made it more fun to work with. I was able to use the fun pieces of Mickey himself along with other pictures on the blanket to contruct the bear. I also included a momento of the child in which the blanket belonged to. Anything at all can be added to create your individual memories.
Although this bear is not for sale, similar bears made with the same material with start off at $50, plus shipping.

CROWN ROYAL MEMORY BEAR

This original bear was crafted from old Crown Royal bags and gold satin. It is trimmed with the rope tie string from the bags. What better way to recycle those old bags that go to waste.
It was made as a gift for a good friend of mine and his new wife.

Ideas are endless when it comes to what type of bear you would like to create. Whether the memories are old or you are creating new memories together. Bears made with satin will start off at $65, plus shipping.
