ABOUT OUR MEMORY PRODUCTS
At Stitches & Art we can turn your memories into something you can cuddle. Memory Bears are the most well-known product, where 2-3 garments from someone you love are made into a teddy bear. We are able to use the garments you choose, and create bunny rabbits, teddy bears and dogs. The size of these products vary as they are handmade just for you, depending on the clothing sent in - they can be about 20cm to 45cm from head to toe, and 10cm (bunny) to 15cm (dog) long. All this information can be provided in your quote, and ironed out (pun intended!).
Memory products are wonderful gifts that you can give to those with special birthdays by using their old baby onesies, as a graduation gift using their old uniforms, or as a truly special gift to give to someone mourning the passing of a loved one, using their favourite clothes.

How long will it take?
Because these products are handmade, it can take up to 2-3 weeks once we receive the fabric (the clothes you send us).
If you live locally and can pick up the product - you will be able to collect it the day it is finished. If you require us to mail the product to you, it may take an extra 2-3 days depending on the postman. You will receive notification that the product is complete so that you know when to expect it.
How much does it cost?
Our memory products start at $50 for a baby-grow bunny. This price includes the labour that we dedicate to making your memories something truly special.
Once you mail us the fabric, we are able to provide you with a quote, as some fabrics need special preparation to ensure a lasting memory to cuddle.
Postage of the product back to you is an additional cost, this allows you to choose if you prefer standard postage or express.
We will then provide you with the bank deposit details for Stitches & Art, so that you can make a direct deposit for payment. Once this is received - we can start.
