Mary Macinnes is a talented creator and the mastermind behind her small company called Bear In Mind where she creates magic. Also known as Mary Mac on social media, the UK-based artist makes Teddy bears from clothes of people’s loved ones to help preserve their precious memories.
The creator mostly uses clothes that belonged to someone who passed away. However, there are parents who wish to preserve a memory of their children, but it can be a cute little substitute for a loved one that went away for a while, as well.
Each Memory Bear takes about 5-6 hours planning, cutting, creating and sewing, but according to Macinnes, it is all worth in the end! And her customers couldn’t agree more; they are super-pleased, and usually full of emotions with her creations.
The crafter studied Fashion Technology at Herriot Watt University and was also named Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 for her business.
She documents her work on Facebook where she gets hundreds of likes from her 35k followers. So, if you are curious to see more of her work, have a look at the images below.
