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
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
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.
I cannot recommend highly enough! I have just received two gorgeous bears made from my Dads clothes and they are amazing. Kay has done a fantastic job and so creative with the clothes I gave her. She also managed to create them in a short time frame as they were a gift for my 30th. X
Unless you see one of the Bears in person you can't actually appreciate how beautiful they are!!! My grandad bear is just amazing!! They are so well made and bring comfort to so many people!! Would highly recommend to anyone!!
