With his long trunk and big ears our keepsake Elephant is one not to be missed.  Made from any of your most treasured old clothes and with up to 45 characters of personalisation embroidery, our elephant is a great way to remember your child's babyhood, or any special person or event.  All of our keepsake animals come in a gorgeous ivory presentation box with an accreditation certificate which has space for a child's name and date of birth. If you want to give one as a gift and can't get hold of the clothes, why not consider one of our lovely gift vouchers or gift sets? 

To create your keepsake elephant just complete the options, then checkout and you'll receive an email telling you where  to send the items of clothing.  The Elephant can be made in two sizes - standard (sitting at approximately 25cm high) or large (35cm).  The large option is really impressive and a great way to have more items of clothing included.  Please do note that there can be a real variation in the appearance of the animals depending upon the clothing that we receive. Please ensure that you do look through the full product photo picture selection in order to get a good idea of how the appearance can vary.

We suggest you send in 4 babygrows or the equivalent amount in other clothing for a standard elephant and 8 items for a large one in order for us to create your beautiful keepsake.  If you select the Large option you will then get the option to add 'weighting'.  This means we can make the item weigh the same as your child did when they were born.  Please do have a look at the clothing tab above for more information about what we recommend.

We can also add a little pouch internally to your keepsake, which contains a removable and re-recordable sound device, shaped like a heart.   The device can be taken in and out of the pouch (which is fastened with velcro) and you can record a message which is played back whenever the device is squeezed.  The device is approximately 6.5cm across and can be recorded over as many times as you like.  This is a wonderful way to treasure special messages from loved ones to parents or vice versa, for the sound of heartbeats or any other treasured recording.

Once we receive the clothes from you it generally takes about six to eight weeks for us to get your finished item back to you.  If you select our Express Service we can do it in under three weeks.  If there is a special date you need it for please do make a note of this when you send in the clothes.  Please contact us if your order is really urgent (under three weeks).  

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.

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.  The stuffing is 100% CE tested polyester.  As these can be delicate items, often made from very well-worn clothes, they can not be CE tested and therefore come with the following Warning: This product is not suitable for persons under the age of 14 years. Pattern is by LoveKeepCreate Ltd.

So Special and well done x

So in love with our elephant keepsake, it's larger than I expected and very well filled. I love seeing my sons first sleep suits incorporated into the clever design especially as the sleep suits had text on them and all the wording has been placed is such a clever way. The box packaging is lovely and it felt like a special treat to open it, really lovely and would make such a gorgeous and thoughtful gift.

I ordered this Elephant and had it made from my daughters first 4 baby grows, it was a gift for her first Christmas. The Elephant was beautifully made and incorporated all her baby grows in the perfect way.

I have just received the most beautiful keepsake ever.
The elephant that combines my daughters first baby grows & little swimming costume & tshirt is just amazing.
It brings back such wonderful memories each time I see the elephant as my daughter is now 21.
Thank you so much for your dedication in creating a truly special keepsake.
I shall definitely purchase from you again.
Good luck in your continuing success with your amazing company.
Thank you.

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 (www.facebook.com/lovekeepcreate) 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.

Weighting is only available on certain animals as shown in the table (PLEASE PROVIDE TABLE) Please note that for those animals where it is available, you have to select the large size of animal.

Please be aware that large weighted animals will appear a lot bigger than they do in the main product photos and will generally have much chubbier looking limbs.  As with all the keepsakes, generally the older/more worn the clothing, the more stretched it will look on the final item, but this is particularly so with weighted keepsakes.  It does not mean that they are overstuffed.
