Description

Our beautiful keepsake cushions are a wonderful way to get the most precious of your little one's old baby clothes on display.  Match them with one of our quilts or blankets or use them on their own as a fabulous addition to any bed or settee.  If you've been wondering what to do with those gorgeous babygrows then this could be your answer.

To create your cushion just choose any personalisation you would like and add it to your cart.  Once you've checked out you will receive a confirmation email telling you where to send the items.  Once we receive them it takes about 4-6 weeks for us to get the order back to you. You will need 5 items for a standard cushion, which measure approximately 50x50cm or at least 8 items for a large one, which measure approximately 75x75cm.  The border and back of the cushions are made with snuggly fleece - we usually use pale blue and cream.  If you would prefer cotton, or the 'popcorn' style material please do get in touch for availability and prices.  Please do have a look at the clothing tab above for more information about what we recommend.

If you want to get a cushion made with a matching quilt or blanket then just add the total number of clothes together. The keepsake cushions come with a detachable keepsake cover, which can be machine washed (we would not recommend tumble drying), and a standard cushion insert.  While our keepsakes can be machine washed at 40 degrees, we would prefer that they are hand washed and dried naturally. Do not tumble dry.  Pattern by LoveKeepCreate Ltd.

We get a lot of questions about the clothing which can be used. This should answer all your questions!

Types of Clothing: We use baby grows as a guide for numbers of items (below) but you can send us pretty much any clothing.  We can work with all kinds of materials - if they are delicate/knitted then sometimes we back them with another fabric for stability. We struggle to work with very chunky knits and we can’t use plastic rainwear or swimwear. On the whole we can do most things, however the wider the variety of fabrics the less ‘uniform’ the finished item will look.

Number of Items: As a guide to what to send in we ask the for equivalent number of babygrows.  This assumes babygrows that are approximately 0-6months. If they are tiny babygrows, vest, tops, trousers etc then they would count as half a babygrow. Equally, if the items are much bigger babygrows, or dresses with quite a bit of fabric to them etc, then you may be able to send less. Generally we would say it is better to send slightly too much than too little. 

Notes: Please do tell us in a note with the clothes which are the favourites, especially if you are sending more than we’ve asked for, so that we can make sure they appear prominently on the finished item. Please do tell us if you want a bit of everything using.  If you don’t, and we don’t need it all, then we will make a decision about what to use and will send back any uncut items. Similarly, it is really important to let us know if you are sending in certain items which are particular favourites, or if you want bits of detailing etc using in a particular way. We will always do our best to adhere to these requests, although it may not always be possible.  

Quality: Obviously the most worn items of clothing are often the favourites and we love these. However, please be aware that the more stretched/worn/washed something is, the more delicate the finished item will be as stitches are more likely to pull into little tiny holes on seams. Also, more won/stretchy fabric tends to look more stretched – obviously! This doesn’t mean it is over-stuffed, it is just a consequence of the fabric. We think it still looks lovely, but you just need to be aware that it may look more different to the pictures on the product pages. There are lots of customer photos on our Facebook page so please do look there for more real life examples. We strongly encourage customers to look at the customer photos  so that you can get a good idea of the variety in appearance of the products. 

Offcuts: We do keep remnants of fabric for a short amount of time after dispatching your order, so if you aren’t happy, or want something back, you need to tell us quickly. Once your order is dispatched then we usually recycle remaining fabric within a few weeks.

How do I send them in? Once you have placed your order you will receive a confirmation email with postage instructions. Please follow the instructions! It is really important to make sure the order reference and a senders address is on the outside of the parcel.

Wonderful cushions to treasure.Reviewed by Young Wombles on 22 Apr 2021

We are so pleased with the quality of the two cushions you made from our father’s collection of ties. The borders were created from a pullover of his and so thoughtfully put together. Thank you for all the attention to detail and the many future happy memories they will evoke.

Beautiful and wonderful attention to detailReviewed by Arts_dev on 11 Feb 2021

I ordered 2 cushions and a penguin using cherished clothes that held so many memories. I had so many notes and requests for each item which I pinned to the various clothes and sent it all away with a hope and prayer. Twelve weeks later the most exquisitely designed cushions and penguin arrived back, exactly as I had hoped and with every tiny request fulfilled. They are absolutely wonderful and I am so thrilled with them. Truly made with love and respect, thank you so much.
