A beautiful handmade quilt created using your child's treasured old baby clothes. A wonderful warm and snuggly reminder of your child's babyhood. Mix together amy colours you like, even pink with blue for a boy and girl.
How it works
We make memory blankets using baby or childrens clothing or any clothing that the customer may want to use, we try and create the blanket the way the customer wants it to be done, therefore no two blankets are the same. Wadding is also added to thicken the blanket and give the customer an option of coloured backing material to use. The blankets start from a cot size up to single bed size we also offer embroidery of a name and date of birth. All blankets come with a beautifully stitched boarder to match.
We will email you after you have placed your order, either that day or the following working day, with the next steps to take and answer all your queries, for example, what address to send your items to and the best shipping method to use.
Get one for yourself, or make it the perfect gift for new parents, christenings, birthdays or Christmas. Using our gift option we can send out our gift pack so that when parents are ready to part with those clothes they can send them straight in to us.
All our keepsake blankets can be personalised with up to 45 characters of embroidery, usually the child's name and date of birth. On the quilt the embroidery appears on one of the panels. Please tell us the details in the boxes above.
The embroidery is placed on felt fabric and then attached to the front of blanket.
What we need from you
You need to send about 20 items of baby clothing for a cot bed quilt and 30 items for a single bed size quilt. For the double and king size, around 50 - 60 items are needed.
Obviously if the items are a bit larger or include blankets then we can manage with fewer. Please do contact us if you have any concerns or queries about what you are sending in.
Often this might be babygrows, but it doesn't have to be, they can be made from any clothes. They don't have to be children's clothes either, it could be a beloved grandparent's clothes, bridesmaid dresses etc. If the clothes are larger childrens' sizes or adults then you can send two items. You can send more if you wish, as many of them as possible will be used but if there are entire pieces of clothing that are unused they will be returned with the completed order.
We will email you after you have placed your order with the next steps to take.
The fabric composition of the quilts clearly varies given the items you send in. However, the wadding and fleece are 100% polyester. Again, care instructions are largely dependent on the items included by you, however each blanket comes with a little card detailing the nature and fragile content of the blanket and we encourage that blankets cannot be machine washed and to keep away from open fires.
The quilts are available in two sizes.
Our Cot Bed Quilt is 100x120cm
Our Single Bed Quilt is 140x180cm
Our Double Bed Quilt is 140x190cm
Our King Size Quilt is 150x200cm
NOTE: All blankets come with a beautifully stitched boarder. Patches may vary in size from one quilt to the next, some patches may be small and others bigger. Where possible, we will try our best and use most of the clothing / fabric you have provided. In some cases, we may add plain fabriced squares to your quilt. However, so that we can provide you with a beautifully designed & matching finished piece, it may not be possible to use all the products provided. If you have any special preferences, please be sure to tell us before we start your order.
