No two bears will look alike. These bears are handmade. The fabric will dictate how the bear will look. Firm fabrics like denim will make a stiff solid bear while a bear made from a sweatshirt will make a softer cuddly bear. If you are curious if a fabric will work please contact me!
Leather jackets, blazers, coats made of down feathers, and fur coats are not recommended for this item.
Collars and button down strips are only added to clothing that have that detail. Other items like sweatshirts, pants and blankets will receive a bow. I can also make the bear with no bow or collar if requested. I can make a bow with purchased fabric or if the fabric is too busy add a solid fabric to the feet and ears so the embroidery will show up better. You will need to request this option. Message me if you want the fabric to be a specific color. You can also provide another article of clothing or ribbon for the bow.
The nose of the bear is black. If you plan to send a black fabric it may not stand out.
Embroidery can be placed on the chest or foot. Up to 3 rows of 7 characters can fit on a foot and are personalized. The chest can have Name birthdate and passing date.
A name in a heart must be 7 or less.
The poem cannot be customized at this time. The only poem offered is this one: This is a shirt I used to wear whenever you hold it know that I am there.
If the fabric pattern is too busy a poem may not show up well. I can add purchased matching fabric for the feet and ears to enable the poem to show up!
Please be accurate as possible with info given. If I need to redo an embroidered piece, there may not be enough fabric to make a new one. There is a $15 charge for customer error.
Please write the desired embroidery in the message to seller section when checking out. If you are sending a note with directions in the box please type it and send a picture through Etsy .
The bear's right foot is on the left side of the picture. Please provide embroidery with the right foot first ,when purchasing embroidery on both feet. For example
Bob Jones
Right foot would be Bob, left foot would be Jones.
