Memory keepsake cushion - made from loved ones clothing


Memory keepsake cushion / pillow are handmade from your loved ones shirt or clothing. They are a lovely way to deal with grief and treasure the memories of loved ones, and turn their clothes into something you can treasure forever. A lovely memorial gift for grandchildren to remember their grandparent.

Your clothing

The cushions can be made from a shirt, t-shirt or jumper, using 1 or 2 items of clothing (if you would like a different front and back).

A shirt, it will be made with the collar showing (unless specified you want a flat cushion) and t-shirts / jumpers it will be made into a flat cushion, with a zip at the bottom and overlocked seams to prevent edges fraying.
