It’s never easy to let go of a loved one and it’s just as hard to decide what to do with the belongings they leave behind. If you have some well-loved clothing, we can help turn them into something to memorialise your loved one. Here at LoveKeepCreate we can take your beloved old clothes and turn them into keepsake memory bears, cushions, blankets and quilts as well as a variety of other keepsake animals. 

Keepsake Memory Bears

Our range of Keepsake Memory Bears are the perfect way to re-use and treasure special clothes that you just can't bear to let go of. All of our bears can be lovingly handmade from almost any item of clothing you choose. Perfect for remembering a special person in your life, we know our keepsake bears will be treasured forever. 

Cardigan/Jumper Memory Bear

Our Cardigan or Jumper Memory Bear has all the same features of our classic bear, but we encourage customers to send us a particular jumper or cardigan, which we then turn into a smaller version for the bear. We make the rest of the bear out of other clothes you send us, while the jumper or cardigan is sewed to the front. We also make a female version of this delightful cardigan/jumper memory bear.

Ashes Pocket Memory Bear

When a loved one passes and we get given their ashes, it's often difficult to know what to do with them or where to keep them. Our special Memory Bear includes a pocket where you can keep a small sample of the ashes, alongside a bear made with their most beloved and treasured clothes.

Photo Memory Bear

Our Photo Memory Bears are the perfect way to remember someone you've lost and always have them with you. As well as using clothing that was special to you and them, we can also add a treasured photo to your bear as one of the panels. This is a particularly loved item to remember grandparents or parents and can be loved by adults and children alike.

Military Keepsake Bear

Our Military Keepsake Bear can be used to remember a loved one who you've lost too soon and remember their time in service. We can use camouflage clothing or other items that you send us, or we can use our own. Either way, we can add various detailing such as regimental badges and rank slides.

Keepsake Cushions

Our lovely range of keepsake memory cushions can be made from any fabric, from grown up or baby clothing. They come in a range of different styles and sizes, with options to add embroidery, such as a name and date of birth, or other special messages. Each item is lovingly crafted in our Devon workshop to the highest standards. 

Lullaby Keepsake Cushion

The Lullaby Keepsake Cushion has been made in collaboration with the amazing Lullaby Trust charity. The Lullaby Trust provides expert advice on safer sleep for babies, emotional support for bereaved families and raises awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). For every cushion that is purchased, we will donate £2 to The Lullaby Trust. We can embroider one of the patches of the cushion, with a name or date and there is the option to add a special pocket containing a little re-recordable sound device.

Grandad Keepsake Cushion

Our Grandad Keepsake Cushion is a really lovely way to hold Grandad, or another loved one, close. People often have very special items that they struggle to know what to do with, and this cushion is a beautiful way to cherish those memories and maintain a reassuring physical bond. These memory cushions can be made from any single shirt, top, jumper, cardigan or t-shirt, and we find this works brilliantly for loved ones that have been lost, or who are just far away. 

Photo Cushions

Photo Cushions are a fantastic way to create unique keepsakes, laden with the memories that mean the most to you.  We can take your photos, either physical or electronic ones, print them to special washable cotton and incorporate them into your cushion.  

Memory Quilts

Our lovely Memory Quilts can have up to 45 characters of personalisation embroidery added and they are a great way of remembering so many different stages of life. There are a variety of sizes and options to choose from and we can make them from the beloved old clothing or other fabric you choose to send in, or we can create them using our own fabric. We can also create Photo Blankets and Quilts which are a fantastic way to create unique keepsakes, laden with the memories that mean the most to you.

If you are looking for ways to honour a deceased loved one and keep them close then our range of keepsake creations are perfect for you. Shop our entire collection here.
