Keepsake Cushions 

Get those precious items of clothing out of storage and back in your arms!
Whether it is your little one’s first clothes or those of a lost loved one, stop hiding them away and let us create something special just for you!
Handcrafted using traditional quilting methods we turn your most cherished items of clothing into a stunning and unique keepsake that you can treasure forever!


A keepsake cushion is a beautiful way to treasure and showcase precious items of clothing you can’t bare to part with. Made using traditional quilting methods and filled with 100% polyester wadding insert and backed with a soft cuddle fleece for style and comfort. Wadding and fleece comply with Fire and Safety Regulations for furniture and furnishings 1988, but we can’t confirm the clothes that you send will.

Cushions measure approximately 40cm x 40 cm, we can make a cushion from a single adult item of clothing such as a shirt or t-shirt etc or at least 8 baby grows.

If you have any special requests or items that you want us to focus on then 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.

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 need your order sooner please let us know as we can sometimes do it in less time.

Most types of clothing can generally be used apart from raincoats or extra thick materials. If any items are extra delicate or knitted we may back them with another fabric for stability. 

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 with your finished item, if you would also like any off-cuts or fabric remnants back for future use, please put a note in with your clothes.


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.

Once you have placed your order we will send you a prepaid mailing bag for you to send your clothes to us. You will also receive a confirmation email with order details, please put a copy of this in with your clothes and post items as directed.

Returns Policy

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 quilt 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 ciamarha@dandelion-wishes.co.uk we will do our best to work with you on this.
