Unique & handmade keepsake memory bears made from your loved ones clothing – little or big, young or old, past or present.  Cwtch & Cherish specialises in making unique, handmade memory bears out of your loved ones clothing – little or big, young or old, past or present.  Why keep these special items hidden away when they can be recrafted and recycled into a bespoke handmade keepsake to treasure forever?

I adore making these bespoke memory bears, all of which are one of a kind and may be personalised for an additional fee.  Testimonials received from previous customers confirm that customers have loved them as much as I do and will cherish them for years to come, some of whom are coming back time after time each for their next child, or gifts for family and friends.

Each bear is made by me personally with the utmost care and attention to detail to produce a high quality keepsake that will last for years to come with no two bears ever being the same.

Due to the amount of interest in my memory bears, I operate a Waiting List system for all new orders.  The Waiting List enables me to offer estimated waiting times at the time of securing a place.  Some orders take longer than others, and also customers cancel and this is why I cannot guarantee completion for a specific date.

When I am ready to take receipt of your clothing bundle, I will email you with instructions on how to proceed with your order.  Upon confirming receipt of your clothing bundle, I will issue an invoice for payment and will start work once payment is received.

Cuddly jumpers, funky prints and teeny pockets are some of the details I captured from Elijah and Bay's outgrown baby clothing :) #memorybear #babykeepsake #handmadekeepsake #madeinwales #babygrowbear #cwtch #cwtchbear #makingmemories #handmadewithlove #OOAK

A fab little BOGOF offer from The Crafty Giraffe :) Only 9 Fridays until Christmas I believe xx

Less is definitely more with this beautiful remembrance bear. Once again, I was truly honoured to be making a bear with clothing so precious to this family with whom I worked closely to produce a memory bear as unique and beautiful as their loved one x #makingmemories #remembrance #memorybear #handmadekeepsake #madeinwales #cwtchbear #inlovingmemory

Henry's little memory bear was bright and cheerful made from a beautiful selection of cherished baby clothing which he has now outgrown. Peeping out of the back is my favourite saying ... "I love you to the moon and back" x #memorybear #babykeepsake #babyboy #dinosaur #seaside #iloveyoutothemoonandback #handmadememories #makingmemories #recycledclothing #cwch #bear

Hahaha!! This is sooooo like me :D x

Well, it's only Wednesday and my week didn't start off well so my apologies for being off-line for so long and not answering any emails or messages! My computer and washing machine both protested and gave up on me leaving me somewhat frustrated at the lack of speed in rectifying both appliances. Good news, however, new computer now up and running (after spending hours communicating with at least 3 different levels of technical support) and waiting patiently for Mr John Lewis to arrive with my new all singing all dancing washing machine. Wish me luck!! How's your day / week going so far? xx #happydaysahead #positivevibes #coffeetime

So what are you all up to on this rather overcast day? I'm sewing vintage memories into a very special memory bear. Again I am truly amazed that I am entrusted with these irreplaceable items of clothing to make my keepsake memory bears x #memorybear #vintage #vintagememories #handmadekeepsake #commonwealthgames #sydneyolympics #handmadekeepsake #madeinwales

It really does make my day when customers take the time and trouble to leave such lovely feedback on my Facebook page Reviews ... "Just received my third bear for my third child from Petra and as usual it is absolutely gorgeous. The detail is just stunning and once again I'm thrilled with the result. Thank you so much xx" #memorybear #keepsakebear #babykeepsake #babyclothesbear #makingmemories #babyboy #babyblue #kermitthefrog #mrmen #planestrainsautomobiles

A timeless combination of white and baby blue clothing was used for Samuel's keepsake memory bear. Plenty of gorgeous detail for me to embrace including a teeny weeny collar which fitted the bear perfectly and some of my favourite sayings which I removed from the clothing and appliqued to the side of the bear's leg .
