On here you will find the Patchwork Friends. These are a collection of keepsakes that can be made from any special clothing such as your baby’s first clothes, school uniforms, military clothing or any other treasured items of clothing.
Gemma will require 5/6 items of baby clothing or 2/3 items of children’s/adult’s clothing to create the keepsakes. Names and decorative items such as bows, tutu's and bracelets can be added onto the keepsakes at your request. All keepsakes will come with a presentation box which come with a choice of colour- black, white, silver or gold.
Memory hearts can be made as a more affordable option especially if you are looking for a large amount of keepsakes to be made from your special clothing. They can be made in various sizes.
Please note that there are a selection of animals on here but Gemma is always happy to try new patterns so please send a message over to discuss your requirements further.
Memory blankets are a lovely way to use lots of items of clothing, they come in cot bed size which is approximately 75cmx120cm and then go up to a double. They are made using your precious clothing alongside a good quality quilt batting, backing fabric and binding.
If you would like a memory blanket Gemma suggests sending approximately 25 items of baby clothing or 10 items of adults clothing.
Please note that all of Gemma's keepsakes are made to a very high standard, however because they are made from worn clothing supplied by the customer they are unable to be CE tested. This means that the keepsake items are not designed to be toys for children under 15 and they will not withstand rough play, rather they are made to be loved and looked after.
Keepsake animals made using patterns by Funky Friends Factory, Melly&Me and Simplicity.
