Memory Bears: How to sell memory bears for money
Yes, you can make money with your sewing skills and work from home while doing it. This blog post is dedicated to making money selling your sewing services in the field of home decor, keepsake, memory, and heirloom sewing.
Memory Bears are stuffed teddy bears typically made from your favorite clothing or that of a loved one that has passed away. Memory Bears are not toys; they are heirloom (or keepsake) memory items that are meant to bring comfort to those friends and family members who are missing their loved ones.
Memory Bears are a viable sewing business option for intermediate or skilled sewists and require time, patience, and some technical skills to maneuver the pattern pieces. Also, there are many different styles of memory bears so you’ll want to decide on which pattern your sewing business will specialize in offering to your customers.
