New Baby Keepsake Cushions

New Baby Keepsake Cushions

We have had so much fun introducing our new baby keepsake cushion range. We have all had children leaving to go to new schools, start university or go travelling. Spring cleaning has been less of a chore as we all decided to find our children’s favourite baby outfits to make the first prototypes. Having carefully packed them away many years ago, I had forgotten how many I had stored away! It was so lovely to bring them out of the boxes and create something to treasure for years to come. Since then we have made some very special cushions for our customers some of which are featured below.



The cushions are hand made from 100% washed linen and display hearts made from a precious babygro. Measuring 10” square, they are piped in coordinated fabric, with the option of embroidery on the back. Depending on … Read more of this post

Royal Connections

Royal connections

As Prince George begins his school career, Blazer Bear are ready and waiting to make a regal keepsake! We are eager to face the challenge as we have already made a number of bears for the pupils of St Thomas’s Battersea, where the young prince will attend.

Our St Thomas’s keepsakes

Our St Thomas’s keepsakes have used a variety of  different aspects of the uniform. We have created keepsakes from their sweatshirts emblazoned with Thomas’s, sports tops, socks have become scarves and usually always feature the lovely gingham shirt…we always love a bit on gingham!

However the Prince is not the only royal connection we have here at Blazer Bear. We have made bears for Wetherby School in Notting Hill where both Prince Harry and Prince William were previous pupils. We really enjoyed their tribute to their Mum last week and here they are looking super cute in … Read more of this post

New School

New School

It is the end of term, or nearly, and summer is here! But for some this also means moving to pastures new. Whether leaving to start secondary school, off to university or moving to a new area it can be a time of full of emotion. At first there is excitement as it is the holidays! Weeks ahead of no homework, being told to do your top button up or perhaps school dinners. For mums and dads no more homework nagging, the school run or frantically trying to organise sports kit on a Monday with no items lost…a challenge!

However it is also a time to look back and reflect. Friendships, fun and achievements and for parents the fact that their children are growing and developing and childhood is moving on. Having a personal keepsake is a wonderful way of remembering those special school days. It is a … Read more of this post

Baby Keepsakes

Baby Keepsakes

We have been so excited this year to introduce our new baby keepsakes! Along with our bears, we now have our floppy eared bunny and our gorgeous cheeky elephant. Wonderful keepsakes created from treasured baby and childrens clothing and personalised embroidery.

We all have those special babygros and outfits from our children’s early years. They are carefully packed away in the attic gathering dust. A keepsake is the perfect way to bring our treasured items back to life.

Mothercare and Hubbub

We were recently invited onto BBC Kent to discuss how to transform our treasured memories and clothing into wonderful bespoke keepsakes for the future. We had a great day and received a fantastic response. Hubbub were also invited to discuss their great initiative #giftabundle. This is a campaign in conjunction with Mothercare UK . They want to encourage mums to pass a favourite piece of baby clothing … Read more of this post

How did it start?

tplFriends since their first children were born, Pru and Kathy are two mums whose children are now at secondary school. As a special keepsake Pru made each of her children a teddy bear out of their old school Blazers. Kathy loved the concept so they joined forces and Blazer Bear. was born.  Find out more
