All of our keepsake animals come in a gorgeous ivory presentation box with an accreditation certificatewhich 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 dragon just complete the options, then checkout and you'll receive an email telling you where  to send the items of clothing.  The Dragon can be made in two sizes - standard (sitting at approximately 15cm high and 40cm long) or large (25cm high and 50cm long).  The large option is really impressive and a great way to have more items of clothing included.  Unfortunately the dragon cannot be weighted. The embroidery is placed on the wings of the keepsake Dragon.  We suggest you send in 4 babygrows or the equivalent amount in other clothing for a standard dragon and 8 items for a large one in order for us to create your beautiful keepsake.  Please do have a look at the clothing tab above for more information about what we recommend.

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 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 Mariska vos Bolman.

Thank you so so much to the whole team for our gorgeous Keepsake dragon! Its amazing!!
The service has been great and very efficient and we are over the moon with how the keepsake has turned out! We can't thank you enough! It will be cherished for years to come! :)

    Thank you so much for my Dragon keepsake, it was one of three I ordered and they are all even more amazing than I ever could have imagined. Made from my husbands shirts, who passed away just over a year ago, they are absolutely beautiful and such a lovely way to make use of his clothes rather than them being kept in a box in the attic!
    I was a little nervous when I sent his shirts off in the post but there was no need, the overall service and end result was fantastic. Arriving in their impressive boxes this morning they brought a tear or few to my eye but I will now look at them with such fondness and happy memories.
    Thank you again x

      Our gorgeous dragon with his beautiful smile and cute button nose is one of our most popular keepsake styles.  Made from the precious items of clothing you can't...

      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.

      We use two main methods of dispatch - Royal Mail and DPD Local. Please use the table below. We’ve used a number of different tiers to keep prices as low as possible without compromising on the quality of service.

      UK Mainland keepsake orders are shipped using DPD Local on a next day delivery service. Highlands & Islands and Northern Island keepsake will be sent using the most cost effective signed for courier. Clothing, gift sets and non-personalised items will be sent via Royal Mail.

      Our Keepsake Express Service can be added at the checkout and relates to how quickly we make the items; it does not include the cost of shipping.

      We do offer international shipping based on the best courier quotes we can get, it is best to get in touch with us to discuss what you want to order and where it would be going so that we can get a more accurate quote.

      It is really important that you tell us if you are going to be on holiday for an extended period so that we don’t dispatch your keepsake during this time. If parcels are uncollected after three weeks the post office/courier return them to us and we will charge the shipping cost again to cover the cost of re-sending it.

      We have a maximum postage limit of £15, so we don’t charge anything above this amount.

      * Small items includes Grandad Cushions’, Daddy Dress/Shirt, small chicks, letters, classic stockings, keepsake stockings.

      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.
