How It Works


What is a Blessing Bear?

Blessing Bears are the best way to keep alive the memory of your loved ones. Turn grandma's wedding dress, grandpa's overalls, a family quilt or baby's favorite blanket into a handmade bear to treasure for years to come. Honor a fallen hero - police, fire figher and military - with a keepsake for their family.

Send us your materials and we will craft an heirloom bear for you!


Step 1: Design Your Bear

Contact us for a personal consultation. Fill out the form here to begin the conversation. We'll discuss your ideas and tell you what to expect from your garment or fabric. Consider adding embroidery for a unique bear with a personalized touch. Each bear comes with a locket and the message “Bear in mind, you are loved by God.”

Step 2: Send Us Your Materials

We can make a bear from most fabrics and textiles – wedding gowns, clothing, men’s suits, overalls, quits, baby blankets, sweaters and more. Consider sending contrasting fabrics to use as accents on the bears. We’ll sew, stuff it with hypo-allergenic filling and add the personal touches. A typical man’s large shirt has enough fabric for one bear.  Make sure we know when you need it.
