Bear and Quilt Gallery
Every custom project is special because of you, my very special clients. It's an honour to help you and to have Teddy My Bears all over the world.
You bring me your memories and tell me your stories, and that is how your teddy bears and your quilts are born.
Below are a few of my many designs over the years.
I love my “one of a kind” made just for me teddy bear. “Buddy Bear” was made with love by Teresa. He has eyes that reflect his own “bear personality”. The mink fur is wonderful to stroke, so soft, and reminds me of my pet cat who is no longer with me. I smile when I see him, and enjoy his presence in my home.

Isabelle (Isabear) and Sadie
Thanks for the precious bears. Part of our mother's estate was her mink coat. Although in good shape, it did not fit anyone, but after seeing your great work, I thought? "What a great idea." My sister and I are so pleased with the results.
The quality and your attention to detail exceeded our expectations. Using the embroidered lining to make the paws, collars and purse was inspired. Our “Sister Bears" are real keepsakes and will always be treasured.

Edna and Edgar
Edna and Edgar Bear were made a mink fur coat owned by Elsie Jayne C. This coat was purchased in Moose Jaw, SK where Elsie worked as a seamstress.
Edna and Edgar lived in St Albert, AB with Don, Shirley and Mark until the Christmas of 2005, when Edna (who has Elsie’s initials on her right front paw) moved to Midland Park, NJ, USA to live with Gail, Elsie’s granddaughter and Edgar (who has the original label attached to his little backside) moved back to Moose Jaw to live with Edythe, Elsie’s eldest daughter.
We all hope Edna and Edgar Bear will be very happy in their new homes!

With Love From Grandma
These bears are extra special because they were made for Shirley from her grandmother’s beaver coat in 2006. These bears were given to her two grandchildren who live in Ft. McMurray, AB.
When Shirley found out she had terminal cancer, she wanted to pass something on to her family so that both her grandmother and herself would be remembered.
I’m made out of Persian Lamb. The inside of my coat was like a jig-saw puzzle, with lots and lots of pieces. My paws were made from my lining and the bows are from the ties on the inside of my coat. I even have the button from the coat as part of my attire!
Her Quilt of Many Colours
This quilt was commissioned for the celebration of the birth of a great great niece. This was given with much love from her Great Great Auntie.
