Here are Mya’s pretty little baby clothes, that her Mum had brought to be used for a baby keepsake bear.

My dearest friend Viv passed away in January from Cancer. I now have my beautiful "Viv' memory bear as a constant reminder of a fantastic friend. I look at her wearing her favourite clothes and smelling her beautiful scent and now smile instead of crying. Lovely to have a piece of my Viv near me forever. I could never thank you enough Kay. Xxx
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
Cant thank you enough for the wonderful memories pieces together to create phoebe bear... it has pride of place in our little girls room. Each bear is individual and as unique as the fabric its made from full is of sentiment and created with love.

Thank you again Kay x heres to more memorys being created from old to treasure forever x
My (four) bears were made with so much love by Kay. The clothes they were made from were very special to us: wedding dress, bridesmaid dress, 2 christening dresses, christening tie, combats, High school blazer, furry coat that my littlest wouldn't take off for nearly two years! All were happy memory's tucked away or only seen in photos. They are now part of every day, displayed all around the house. Our memory bears make me smile so often. Couldn't recommend Lily's love enough x
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.
