Memory keepsake heart with voice recorder message - made from loved ones clothing / shirt


These handmade memory hanging hearts are made from your loved ones 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 gift for grandchildren to remember their grandparent.

These hearts are also a lovely way to remember special moments such as using a uniform to commemorate retirement, or a bridesmaids dress to remember a wedding.

Each heart comes with a 30 Second voice recorder, which you can use to add a voice recording, favourite song or voicemail from a loved one. A velcro opening is used to insert the voice recorder, which means it can be removed for washing or changing the message. They are really easy to use, just press a button, record your message, then twist the recorder closed to save your message.

Your clothing

Hearts are best made from shirts, t-shirts or jumpers. They can be made from 1 or 2 items of clothing.

To give a better idea of the amount of clothing I need - each heart uses 2 x A4 sized pieces of fabric.
