A beautiful handmade quilt created using your child's treasured old baby clothes.
A wonderful and snuggly reminder of your child's babyhood. Either get one for yourself or use our 'Gift It' service. You send us your child's old baby clothes and we take the greatest care to create a totally unique quilt. With thick 4oz wadding and backed with lovely soft fleece, these make a beautiful addition to your child's room, or to be kept for yourself! Our quilts are a great way to get those baby clothes out of the attic and back in to your arms.
How it works:
ORDERS REQUIRED FOR CHRISTMAS: deadline to order and get the clothes to us is 10 Nov. After that date you can still do it but you will need to use our EXPRESS service and must have the clothes with us by 24 Nov. Once you have placed your order you will receive an email telling you where to send the items and some recommendations about postage. Once we receive the clothes it usually takes 4-6 weeks to create a keepsake quilt, but we can rush it through in three weeks if you use our express service. We take the utmost care with your irreplaceable items. As mummies ourselves we know how important they are.
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 animals 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.
What we need from you:
You need to send about ten items of baby clothing for a cot bed quilt and twenty items for a single bed size quilt. For a double bed size we'd need 40, or 50 for a king size bed quilt. 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 they 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.
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, but we would recommend washing on a delicate cycle at no more than 40degrees.
The quilts are available in two sizes. Our Cot Bed Quilt is 100x120cm. Our Single Bed Quilt is 140x180cm. A double bed quilt is 140x190cm and a king size is 150x200cm.
