The Patchwork Process

Step 1:

You forward us your old baby clothes and a completed order form. The amount of clothes needed is listed in the sizes / prices table.

You can either bundle all your clothes together or mark specific outfits as ‘must be used’, ‘second best’ and ‘extras’.

If you don’t have enough outfits for the keepsake you really want that is not a problem – we will fill in the gaps with a plain fabric and create a boarder.

We will use the detailed parts first before using the plain backs. Pockets and necklines can be incorporated for an even more special finish.

If you have sent us a digital copy of a photograph, remember to tick the box on the order form. Emails containing the photograph should include all your details.

Step 2:

We will ring you to confirm receipt of your clothes and check any photographs sent are matched correctly.

Step 3:

The outfits will be cut and pinned in place and a photograph sent to you for your comments. This is the time for you to make any design suggestions. If you don’t like our design, or think something has been used too much or not enough just say and we’ll change it. The clothes will not be sewn until you are happy with the configuration.

Extra special items such as hats and bibs can be sewn onto the face of the item. Your child’s name, date of birth or other special details can also be sewn on in a soft felt to give an extra personal touch.

Step 4:

We use a variety of different colour cottons for the reverse of the items, or you can send a favourite quilt to be used. The colour of the backing is also agreed with you – we will suggest a colour which complements the outfits you have sent but you can change this if you wish. Alternatively you can upgrade to super soft Minky fabric.

Step 5:

Once your keepsake is complete it is posted back to you via recorded delivery ready for you to enjoy. You and your child can snuggle up on the sofa to read or watch the TV together wrapped in this special blanket – perfect together-time.

Please allow 5 weeks for the completion of your order.
