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

Well.... I am on my soon to be Fourth Memory Bear and I couldn't recommend Memory Bears - by Lily's Love enough.
Kay is a very compassionate and understanding lady and goes through each detail of the bear with you before she starts to cut up your cherished items of clothing.
Trust me, they could not be in safer hands.
My three children absolutely adore theirs and they made the death of their grandparents easier to talk about with the help of these bears
What was once some clothing stored away of mum and dads are now some of the most beautiful bears I have ever seen, each one she makes is so individual and personal. The craftsmanship is second to none.
I cannot wait to have a bear made for me to add to our collection, I adore them .
What a beautiful thing to pass down through generations
