Jumper Keepsakes

Snow Days

Jumper keepsakes have ironically been very popular this month! We have had a few snow days at the workshop this month due to the ‘Beast from the East’ and then the ‘Mini Beast’ which arrived this weekend. As Kent woke to a winter wonderland we suffered a frozen pipe and our local train station was closed. However we have loved the cosy fires and luckily no milk shortages… need our cups of tea! The workshop was closed for a few days during our first cold spell for some fun in the snow and our deliveries were also delayed. However we have received the backlog very quickly and we are back to full speed.

Jumper Keepsakes

Over the years we have made lots of gorgeous jumper keepsake bears and cushions, and even keepsakes from favourite coats, scarves and hats. We made a gorgeous bear from this favourite winter wool … Read more of this post

School leavers keepsake gifts

School leavers keepsakes

One of our most popular purchases are our school leavers keepsakes. Last year we introduced our keepsake cushions to compliment our other keepsake products and they have proved very popular! The same concept applies as the bears, as the cushions can be created from any special clothing. What customers have appreciated is that within the same family the children have their own preferences. Some like the keepsake cushions, some prefer a Blazer Bear. It allows everyone to make their own choice of keepsake and truly personalise it. Something to suit all tastes!

Headmasters leaving keepsake gift

Recently we completed a lovely order for a departing Headmaster and his family. Each of his three children received a keepsake Blazer Bear with a message from the school embroidered on the back. The Headmaster and his wife received a keepsake cushion.

We created the main body of the bears from … Read more of this post

Remembrance Day – Forces Keepsakes

Forces Keepsakes

Forces Keepsakes are very special keepsake bears in the Blazer Bear workshop. Since 11/11 is approaching we are all wearing our poppies and thinking about all the Forces keepsakes we have made. We have created a poppy bear as a reminder of the sacrifices the armed forces have made. Because so many have given their lives  we are incredibly proud to have been able to make keepsake bears out of such wonderful uniforms.

Because all the uniforms come with interesting detail each bear is a treasured keepsake. The Blazer Bear team always make the keepsake bears a true representation of their owner since these uniforms have clearly been worn with pride .

The Forces Keepsake bears have been lovingly created using the uniforms, buttons, badges and braiding. A particularly fun keepsake bear  was made for a Kings Trooper soldier. As the uniform  contained gold braid and gold buttons … Read more of this post
