If, like me, you’ve kept special pieces of clothing that your children have outgrown, it’s hard to know what to actually do with them. So why not have them turned into something else? I love this idea – send Bubs Bears a selection of garments and they’ll make them into a very special patchwork bear for you to treasure.
Each bear is unique and lovingly handmade from scratch by Bubs Bear’s founder Abby. Prices start at £55.
You can also choose from a range of ready made bears, including some created from gorgeous Liberty print, which start at £35.
I love this wedding keepsake bear which you can have made from your dress as a memento (so much easier to store, too).
You can see more at bubsbears.com and you’ll also find lots of other beautifully handmade items including purses, dolls and quilts.
