Personalised School Uniform Memory Bears
If you are on the hunt for the perfect gift to commemorate a loved ones time at school then look no further than our By Jess school uniform memory bears. Made from your leaver’s own school uniform, each bear is hand pieced and machine sewn together, with a personalised message on the bear's foot.
Personalised, handmade memory bears
I just love being a part of these memorable occasions in my customers life and it is a real joy to be able to sew gifts that mean so much to those who receive them. Our time at school is full of friendships and experiences that never leave us. My aim is for these bears to provide a tangible focus for these joyful memories and comfort when those days are missed.
Each of my bears is lovingly hand pieced together with your leaver’s own uniform arranged to show it off to full effect. This slightly differs depending of the uniform provided, you can see examples in the photographs. Lots of uniform consists of blocks of colour, so some gingham from a summer dress, or the pattern of a tie work well to break up those blocks; and even if not worn by your leaver themselves, will have been a part of their school experience.
The extra special part of each of these By Jess school uniform memory bears is their personalised feet. Often I will sew the school crest on one side and embroider the leaver’s name, date of leaving and “leavers” on the other foot. If you would like a different message on the feet, please contact me and we can discuss your needs.
Once you’ve placed an order you will receive an additional email detailing how to get your clothes to me and a rough estimate for when your bear will be sewn. Items of clothing provided should be freshly laundered but do not need to be in pristine condition as I can cut around any worn areas. I would just ask that the area around any school badges is damage free.
