Memory Bear by Brenda of Scrumbly Creations
I’m taking a break from bear making during the summer months but can accept your orders for my list to start in September 😊
Hi - I’m Brenda, joint owner of The Crafty Rock, working under the business name of Scrumbly Creations. You’ll find my page on Facebook .
I have been making these Memory bears, with great respect, for several years now and I really enjoy making something which is so special to people. It's always a challenge to take a number of different garments made from different types of fabrics , patterns and colours and put them together into something which works. Sometimes my customers have specific instructions, at other time it is left completely up to me to decide how to combine them.
I can make a Memory bear from baby clothes, school uniforms, sport kits,garments worn at a special event or using clothing from a deceased loved one.
The time needed to make a bear varies with the time of year and the number of orders I have.
I generally need up to two weeks to complete an order, but at busy times of the year, like at Christmas, it can take longer from when you place your order, so don't leave it until the last minute !
The bears I make come in 2 sizes:
When sitting they measure approximately
Medium 10" (25cm) €35
Large 12" ( 30cm) €40
The time taken for each is the same, but as more filling is required for the larger bears the prices reflect this.
If the fabric requires interfacing to prevent stretching there will be an additional cost of €5.
I can add a hand embroidered name or message for an extra charge of €1 per letter/digit
When your bear is finished I will send you a photo and you can collect and pay in store if it’s possible or you can phone the shop to pay 0852527077 and I will shop it to you
Postage cost is €4.95 on orders less than €100 after which it is free.
If you would like me to make you a Memory Bear please message and I will call you.
