A memory cushion is a lovely way to turn the clothing of a loved one into something to cherish. We are able to use most types of clothing (e.g. a shirt, t-shirt, jumper or cardigan) and will do our best to retain particular features of the clothing, such as collars and motifs.
We can also embroider a special message onto the cushion at no extra cost. One of our popular messages is:
You can of course, choose any wording to be added on the cushion, whether this be a significant poem or particular words that your loved one used to say.
Our memory cushions measure at approximately 40cm square but we can also make them smaller or larger at your request. They come complete with a good quality cushion insert and are finished with a zip so that you can easily remove the cushion cover for cleaning if needed. Cushions made using shirts or clothing items with a row of buttons are not finished with a zip as the buttons provide the opening.
If you have a number of clothing items that you would like making into a keepsake, then a patchwork memory cushion is the perfect choice. Depending on your preference and also the particular features of your clothing, the clothing can be made into either an irregular patchwork or a pattern or regular squares.
Patchwork cushions can be made in two sizes:
All cushions come complete with a cushion inner and a zip opening. The patchwork is continued onto the back of the cushion, unless you would prefer a plain backing and an embroidered name or message can be added to personalise your cushion.
These smaller keepsakes are ideal if you would like something made out of sentimental clothing to give to several members of the family. They are perfect for hanging on the Christmas tree or placing on your bedside table.
The memory stars measure approximately 20cm across. Both the stars and hearts fit nicely in the palm of your hand and so are perfect to hold at times when you need comfort. They can be personalised with an embroidered name or small message and can be made with or without a ribbon for hanging.
We will honour a discount on multiple orders of stars or hearts, especially when ordered alongside a larger memory cushion.
