Handcrafted memory cushions are a uniquely beautiful way to treasure your beloved old clothes.
Cushions measure 42cm X 42cm, are backed with a soft cuddle fleece and filled with a 100% polyester wadding insert that complies with Fire and Safety Regulations for furniture and furnishings 1988.
We recommend you send at least 8 items of baby clothes or at least 4 items of adult clothing, although we can make a cushion out of one adult item if preferred.
If you have some extra special items please put a note in with your clothes and we will make sure these are given priority. We may contact you to discuss your choices.
If you send tiny items that are too small for a full square we may be able to add them to plain squares as a featured shape e.g. heart, star or letter.
We ask for a variety of items to make your quilt less uniform but can work with the items you send.
Generally we would say it is better to send slightly too much than too little. We send any unused items back to you, if you would also like any off-cuts or fabric remnants back for future use, please put a note in with your clothes.
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.
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.
Note: 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.
Once we receive the clothes from you it generally takes about four to six weeks for us to get your finished item back to you. If you need your order sooner please let us know as we can sometimes do it in less time.
We cannot accept handcrafted and personalised items back unless they are actually faulty. However please note that all items are unique and no two are alike (unless you send duplicate items in and request identical items).
There is a wide variation in how each finished keepsake looks, due to the very different natures of the fabrics we receive. The images on our site are for guidance only. However if you are not happy with your order for any reason please get in touch straight away to discuss it by emailing email@example.com we will do our best to work with you on this.
The cushion cover is detachable but due to the delicate nature of the fabrics used we recommend hand washing only, with mild detergent.
Do not tumble dry.
