Our lovely Memory Blankets are made from the most cherished of your little one's old clothes and can have up to 45 characters of personalisation embroidery added.  These blankets are a great way to remember your child's babyhood.   They make equally great keepsakes when made using adult clothing.  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 cards?

Our memory blankets come in standard (90 x 105cm, £65.00), large (105x120cm, £75.00), single bed (120cm x 165cm £105.00) or double bed (165cm x 165cm £155.00).  Backed and edged with lovely snuggly fleecy fabric they’re perfect for cuddling up to.  We suggest that you send at least 10 baby grows for a standard sized blanket, at least 15 baby grows for a large blanket, 25 for a single bed size and at least 40 for double bed, or the equivalent amount in other clothing.  The main image here is of a single bed size quilt - which gives you an idea of the number of patches.

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).  If you want to incorporate more items or don’t want us to use plain patches from the backs of items then please include a note to this effect when you send the clothing in.  The front squares from baby grows will very often incorporate the poppers. Watch our video below for answers to your questions on LKC blankets.

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).  

We generally use cream for girly blankets and light blue for boys, as we find this compliments the general colours of the clothing.  We can also use pale pink.  If you want to specify the colour please do pop a note on the order saying what you'd prefer.  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 all our keepsake items can be machine washed at 40 degrees, we would prefer that they are hand washed and dried naturally. Do not tumble dry. Pattern is by LoveKeepCreate Ltd.

Double Size Memory Quilt

Couldn’t be more delighted with patchwork quilt made with my sons clothing which I have struggled to part with for 11 years following his death. It far exceeds my expectations and my specifications were met. Thank you so very much for taking such care!

Cherished all over again!

I couldn't part with the most memorable of my sons baby clothes, when we got cleared out his clothes and rather than putting them in a box never to be used again Love Keep Create turned them into a blanket which my Son & I both adore, so lovely that it can be loved and used everyday. 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.
