Thank you Mandy for your excellent service, compassion, attention to detail and speed with which you completed my order for a very special memory bear. Pete bear took pride of place at my daughter’s wedding and ensured that her Dad could be a part of her big day. He will be cherished by my daughter and son-in-law forever. Your quality of service and craftsmanship are second to none Mandy. Th...ank you.

Business overview

Hand Crafted by us, Loved by YOU. Handmade in Wales.

I’m Mandy and “Forget me not Memory Bears” is a lifetime ambition.

I decided to take the plunge and start my own business after my Mum bought me a Memory Bear. My Dad died a few years ago and to help me with the grieving process Mum bought me a bear with a pouch in the back to store my Dads’ ashes. I keep that bear close and even talk to him, my bear gives me great comfort and reassurance but other than Dads ashes the bear is generic and I wanted something more personal that reminded me of him.

I have spent 20 years working in the textile industry making a whole range of products and knew I had the professional skills, knowledge and desire to make a special Memory Bear. I wanted to give other people the same comfort and pleasure I got from my bear but with the personal touch.

My husband Mark and I have developed a beautiful range of bears Our “Remember Me bear” is made from loved one's clothing and has a keepsake pouch in the back.

“We like our bears furry” so join us on our new journey and take a look at our Bears and the other handmade items in our shop: https://www.sewsonice.co.uk/shop

I ordered a bear for my daughter when she graduated from university. It is perfect with the colours matching the uni colours, a lot of research was done. The personalised embroidery is also perfect. Excellent, friendly service would recommend for any occasion.

Bella Bear from our "paw prints on our hearts" range

Want to say a HUGE thank you to Mandy Knowles. She has gifted us our very own Bella Memory Bear. Our Bella Bear is every inch as beautiful as our real Bella was and last night we felt like we were saying goodnight to 'our Bella'. We cannot believe the attention to detail, hard work and obvious love that Mandy has put into her. Having our Bella Bear has helped us feel that she is home where she belongs. Thank you Mandy. There are no words to articulate how we feel.

Pete Bear a very special wedding gift

Thank you to the amazing Mandy for making this very special bear for my daughter so her Dad, who is sadly no longer with us, could be a part of her wedding. Every detail is perfect and my daughter could not have been happier. If anyone is thinking of having a memory bear made for any occasion or simply to keep at home as a reminder of someone special, I can highly recommend Mandy for her skill, customer service and attention to detail. Thank you Mandy!
