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

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
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
After the original Lily bear... I have the pleasure of owning the first of Kays bears, Beth bear, so beautifully made, holds such happy memories, a wonderful idea. Thank you x
