A Special Bear

Memory Bears are bespoke handmade keepsakes which are made from cherished clothing or blankets that belong to yourself, a child or to a lost loved one.  

These bears are unique to yourself and family.  Over time they become a treasured heirloom.

Sewing teaching learning #HeatherMakes sewing out doors craft centre An Cregan

I was shown how to use a sewing machine a few years ago.  Since then I have taught myself to make and create a variety of products. Handmade is what I do.

What I Sew

Memory bears


These can be made from loved ones clothing. Or from clothing and blankets (anything really) that has sentimental value. Handmade sewing is my craft

Be Creative!


I am a maker and artist with needle and thread.  Be sure to let me know if you like to sew. I would love to see what you create.  Send me a picture of your finished project and feedback on how the materials worked for you. Your work could be in my next gallery show!

Handmade Toy Snake!

This was a fun make! My kiddies loved the snake so much so that I 'had' to make a few more!! This one just hangs around the neck of my mannequin!
