Our lovely memory blankets are made from the most cherished of your little one's old clothes and are a great way to remember your child's baby years. As well as being great for remembering childhood, they make equally lovely keepsakes when using adult clothing.
Handmade by our small team, we do our best to incorporate all of the special parts of the clothing your submit so that you receive a memory blanket that you're delighted with. Backed and edged with lovely snuggly fleece fabric, they're perfect for cuddling up to and will be a treasured keepsake for years to come. We generally use cream for girl's blankets and light blue for boy's blanket as we find this compliments the general colours of the clothing. However, we can also use light pink so please let us know when ordering what you'd prefer.
With baby clothing we tend to use each item for two squares - one from the front of the item and one from the back (hence we ask for approximately half as many items of baby clothing than there are squares). The front squares from baby grows will very often incorporate the poppers. If you want to incorporate more items or don’t want us to use plain patches from the backs of items, then please let us know in the Special Instructions at the checkout or in a note with your order.
While our keepsakes can be machine washed at 40 degrees, we would recommend that they are hand washed and dried naturally. Do not tumble dry.
More Details & How It Works
Once you’ve placed your order, you’ll receive an email telling you how to send us your clothes. Once we receive your clothes, it takes approximately eight weeks to get your finished keepsake back to you, unless you choose one of our Express Options at the checkout - we can make them in as little as one week. If there is a special date you need it for, please do make a note of this when you checkout or send in the clothes.
If you have got a lot of special requests and additions then, depending on the complexity, we may contact you to request an additional payment to cover the cost of making these.
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.

I had a blanket made from my two daughters’ baby grows and I am so happy to with the finished product. It arrived beautifully presented and is made really well. It’s a lovely soft blanket. Shame no one will ever be allowed to use it!
Gorgeous blanket, very high quality. Reviewed by Sambailey1974 on 08 Feb 2020
I love this so much! Ordered a memory blanket for my daughter's 18th birthday, made from all her 0-6 months clothes that I could never bring myself to part with! She absolutely loves it, and so does everyone who has seen it. Highly recommended.
Memories Reviewed by Peacocksandlillies on 05 Feb 2020
For our sons 21st we decided to have a keepsake blanket made. We had saved some of his football shirts from his childhood and asked to combine these with clothing from loved ones that had been taken from us too soon. We underestimated the end result which has married the precious clothes together into a beautiful, comforting blanket fitting for a 21 yr old man to cherish.
