Cuddly Clothing Keepsakes...

Many families have a collection of their baby's clothing and blankets and struggle with what to do with them. Keep them boxed up? Pass them down to Rainbow siblings? Pass them on to others? It's a difficult decision when all we want to do is wrap our babies up in them and hold them close...

This is where these new additions to my Keepsakes page may become useful and comforting to you and those close to you.

The following sites are dedicated to making custom teddy bears out of and/or dressed in your baby's clothing. These bears would make fabulous keepsakes for parents, siblings, family members and friends who hold a special place in your heart for the love they share with you and your baby. 

(Teddy Babies)

"This beautiful bear was made in memory of my great nephew.

Bentley only lived 7 hours after birth due to a rare heart condition.

I’ve hand painted Bentley’s footprints on the pad and have weighted

this bear to be Bentley’s weight. I’ve made the bear with part fur and from

a blanket Bentley was held in and then dressed the bear in Bentley’s jammies."


Molly Bears

Molly Bears in a non-profit organization that creates custom weighted teddy bears for families who are in need of a cuddle from their angel. 


All bears are made possible from donations and are sent to families free of charge (international shipping not included). 


Please consider making a donation in order for this fabulous organization to continue to bring smiles and cuddles to the hundreds of families who are currently on the wait list as well as those who will be added every day.

The Patchwork Bear makes custom quilts out of your clothing as well.


A tangible little something to wrap your arms around with oh so much meaning.



  1. wow, this is AMAZING! thanks for sharing. Definitely going to share these resources as well. I'd love to have a quilt made.

    Love your header, btw.

    Love, Hannah Rose

  2. It's my pleasure Hannah Rose! I only have one onesie that we had for Claire and I saved a few of my favorite shirts that I wore when I was pregnant with her. My hope is to one day make a quilt with all of my favorite clothing that my babies wore... however I am not crafty/quilty so I may have to have someone else do the work for me!

    And I love my header too! Franchesca at Small Bird Studios put my vision into reality and it is more than I could have hoped for!
