Our beautiful keepsake bunting is a fantastic way to keep the most treasured of your babies outgrown clothes on display in their bedroom. We can make these from your baby and children's clothes or even from some special items of adult clothing that a loved one has worn. The bunting is made with a loop at either end so that it can be hung up.
We can applique on your child's name using felt - we will generally use pink for boys and blue for girls so please do specify if you would like another colour. Our strings of bunting come as standard with 10 flags and the choice to add any name of up to 10 characters. You can also purchase additional flags at a cost of £2.50 per flag.
We require one item of clothing for two flags and all flags are lined. Once we receive the clothing from your our strings of bunting take approx. 4 weeks to make and return to you. We do offer an express service where we can return your finished bunting more quickly, for those urgent last minute gifts. If you want to give a string of keepsake bunting as a gift and can't get hold of the clothes, then why don't you consider one of our lovely gift cards?
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.

Excellent quality bunting Reviewed by Hww7 on 20 Aug 2020
Fabulous bunting (3 lots) made from adult clothes to celebrate the lives of deceased spouses and the blending of our two families. Not just baby clothes that they do!
Beautiful Reviewed by Mcarthur.k on 24 Apr 2020
We ordered this bunting with our own names for our wedding, because we loved the bunting we’d already had made with our kids’ names. It’s beautiful and full of more memories of our two babies. The two strings of bunting look fantastic together, thank you!
Delighted Reviewed by East London on 05 Mar 2020
Really pleased with the bunting, I had a Merry Xmas banner made with leftover red and orange salwar kameez from my travelling in India. They had a lot of memories so it was great to be able to keep them in a new way. Thank you!
