Treasured discards? Thanks for the memory.

I have asked earlier if there are ways to make a living out of treasured discards that has no value to others to consider selling.

Shannon Batson has the answer when she made memory bears out of her grandfather’s favourite clothing after his death, for each of his children. That is how she started her business, Create Treasures.

See how she recycles fur coats that grandmothers loved so much.

Here is a Camo Bear she created.

These were created for the family of servicemen who have died protecting her country. Out of gratitude, she did not charge them for her creations. I cannot think of a better way for anyone to show appreciation or remember someone by.

Can you?
