‘Hayley’ bear charity Auction Early last year when we all watched the much loved Coronation Street character Hayley lose her battle with Pancreatic cancer. I was chatting with a friend who works at Granada and we both agreed that to make a memory bear in Hayley’s honour would be wonderful! My friend had a […]

Lilys Love Memory bears in Chat Magazine Monthy Special October 2014 A few months ago I was approached by a friendly journalist who had seen my bears on facebook, she wanted MY story!

Lee Rigby Keepsake Bear I was so appalled to hear about the brutal murder of young soldier Lee Rigby in May. It was awful to watch the grieving family on the television, it was so upsetting to see, such a tragic waste of a young life. In June I was contacted by the lovely Emma […]

I have had 2 bears from the fabulous Kay at Memory Bears by Lily's Love. The first, made from army clothing was for my mum in memory of my dad who died a year ago. After speaking to Kay I got together a bag of clothes and delivered them to her. We sat down and talked about what bits could be used where. The result is amazing and the bear now sits in pride of place next to my dads chair at home. The 2nd bear was for a happier occasion, the Christening of my god daughter. This one was commissioned as a surprise for her parents and once again after delivering a bag of clothes I sat down with Kay and discussed the options. Kay listened to my ideas and of course brought her own creative thoughts to the table. The result is truly amazing, she even added a photo of the baby on the label along with date and place of the event. Kay is a true genius and her bears are unique and original. I would highly recommend these lovely souvenirs to anyone. xx
Absolutely amazing, was definitely the best thing I could have done with my grandmas clothes. The bears we had made can sit on show as opposed to clothes in a closet. In doing this I can look at the bears with happiness rather than looking a pile of clothes that my grandma used to wear. Thank you so so much xxx
We have Daniel Bear, and he has pride of place on our bed each morning and on our cupboard each night, I love being able to see Daniel Bear, the clothes Daniel was made from were in our loft in a box, I feel as though Daniel is nearer to us now having our bear. Kay has made a beautiful job of him. I love the fact that his arms and legs move, and the personal touches that Kay brings out of the clothing onto the bears that make them so special. Thank you again Kay for our wonderful memories in Daniel Bear. xx
Just got a picture of two bears I ordered and must so I cannot wait to pick them up. How Kay has used the colours is amazing. To use our mums clothes and our children's to make a bear is amazing and is something my sister and I will treasure.
To have such a lovely and special bear in my house to remind me of mum is beautiful. I was so touched when everyone chipped in and so grateful to have gained so much from material. I chose a gorgeous dress and for Kay to make it into a bear filled with love and memories, makes it so sentimental than hidden in a wardrobe. The detail on the bears are gorgeous and every bear is unique and special- every bear has a story! They are for every occasion/keep sake and at such a high standard. I have recommended the bears to many family and friends, to which they are then getting their own made! They are worth every penny!! My beautiful bear is in my lounge, where I see her everyday which brings back so many memories of my mum which I have with me forever. Stunning bears, I highly recommend!! Thank you Kay, you should be so proud X
