papa bears

To order your Papa Bear, complete the form below and submit. I will then send you an invoice. I accept personal checks, PayPal and money orders. Orders are processed once payment is clear and garments are received.

PLEASE NOTE: Garments will NOT be washed. So please wash before sending.

Bears are intended for keepsakes, not as toys. I use safety eyes, and reinforce the fabric with interfacing for extra durability. To promote longevity of your bear, they should be kept as keepsakes. If you need to clean your bear, dry clean only is advised.

4-8 week production time on average

General Information

Prices start at $40 per bear, plus shipping.
Please allow 4-8 weeks for completion.
Papa Bears are approx 20” long
Baby Bears are approx 10”- 12" long.

The garments that work best for Papa Bears are adult size button down dress shirts, flannels, or cotton t-shirts. If you have one with a pocket on the front I can incorporate that into the belly of your bear so that you have a place to put a photo or prayer.

If you are ordering a Baby Bear, I can use 6-9 months sleepers (min), or receiving blankets. If you are sending onesies, I would need multiple onesies to insure I have enough to make your Baby Bear.

All fabric submitted to make any bear must be able to be ironed, as I reinforce the fabric with interfacing on the back to add durability. I do not launder any clothing before making your Bear.

Each bear takes me 3 hours to create; they are all made by hand. I use my best creative judgement to design your bear using the clothing you provide, I can’t promise to capture the entire design or all the details.
