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.

    Keepsake pillow

    Received my order yesterday and was literally in tears. The pillow was amazingly stitched and exactly how I wanted it. Sarah was great at communicating throughout the whole process. My family will treasure this memory forever! Thank you

    Sarah has done a beautiful job of creating a treasured keepsake. I’m thrilled with my memory cushion. It’s been made to such a high quality standard. Thank you so much.


    Sarah was lovely and really helpful with questions prior to ordering and the item she has made using my beloved dads jumper for my mum is just beautiful!
    I will be ordering more for my sister and my children

    Beautiful work out of old T-shirts

    I had Sarah make a cushion out of a beloved T-shirt that I couldn't wear anymore. My Mom used to sew these cushions for me, so it's a comforting reminder of her. Sarah's work was amazing and I immediately sent off another shirt so she could work her magic again!
