A beautiful cushion/pillow that can be made from a range of clothing. These can be made from a single item of adult clothing such as a shirt, jumper, cardigan or tshirt or can be made as a patchwork using baby clothing or a mix of adult clothing. 



These are available as 16" x 16" or 18" x 18". Sizes are approximate as some clothing items may have more stretch than others.


A made to fit inner cushion is provided. Covers can be made removeable or can be sewn shut.  Features of the clothing are used where appropriate such as the button oppening on a shirt or cardgan is used as the opening of the cushion. Where there is no opening a zip can be added. 



Memory Cushion/Pillow

  • The amount of material depends on the type of clothing you are sending:

      Baby clothing - a minimum of 6-8 items excluding small items like mitts, hats and socks. For items smaller than 3-6mths please send more items.

    Children's clothing - a minimum of 3 items

    School uniform - a jumper or cardigan, a tshirt/shirt, a pair of trousers, skirt or pinafore, and optional for girls a summer dress. At least one item of clothing should have a school logo on. PE kits can also be used or incorporated.

    Adult clothing - a minimum of one item equivalent to a men's medium sized shirt.

    All clothing should be clean and in good condition.

    More items allows for a patchwork effect and can make the item more interesting. You may indicate which items are priority  items and which are for smaller features. I endeavour to keep all the beautiful details from every item sent. Care is taken in deciding the placement of each item within the pattern and I unpick pockets, bows, buttons etc to reuse and add extra detailing to every keepsake.


    Any uncut clothing will be returned to you with your finished keepsake. If you would like the off cuts from the clothing returned this can also be arranged.

    * We know that the clothing items you send to us are irreplaceable and handle them with care -- our studio is smoke and pet free and we will let you know when we receive your items, by sending you a confirmation email.
