Hanna Bruce Bears & Teddy Hospital® “Hanna’s Heart and Soul Bears" "Helping You Hold Onto Memories"
I started making artistic "memory bears" for clients over 16 years ago. These bears are made out of clothing or special fabric from their loved one that has passed away. This can be anything from a military, police, fireman, sheriff’s uniform with utilizing the badges or stripes, etc. , old sweatshirt, shirt, coat, blazer, or any piece of clothing that you would like. I have also made these out of wedding dresses with lace, etc.
These bears are becoming popular on the web. The difference with my "Heart and Soul Bears" is that they are very detailed and I pay attention to details of patterns of the fabric as well as use buttons, etc. from the clothing to make accents. I have made numerous bears and have excellent references if you would like one. I really enjoy making these bears and they touch the heart and soul of every customer I send the finished product to.
This image is a bear I made out of a pair of Russell Athletic shorts. I utilized all the buttons, collar, cuffs, etc. My client was very happy with the finished bear. These are one of a kind bears and they all have Teddy Hospital Service for Life from Dr. Hanna.
