Our Memory Blankets are made from the most cherished of your little one's old clothes or from special items saved and cherished from a loved one who is no longer with us. You can have up to 45 characters of personalisation embroidery added. These blankets are a great way to remember your child's babyhood, a lovely memory, a special occasion or a loved one. 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 cot (90 x 105cm, £65.00)large cot bed(105x120cm, £75.00), single bed (120cm x 165cm £120.00) or double bed (165cm x 165cm £180.00). 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 standard cot sized blanket.
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.
Once we receive the clothes from you it generally takes about Three weeks for us to get your finished item back to you. 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 pink fabric for girls blankets and light blue for boys, as we find this compliments the general colours of the clothing. We can also use cream if you prefer. 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 recommend that they are hand washed and dried naturally. Do not tumble dry.
