ORDERING PROCESS – INFO SHEET  and Frequently Asked Questions


How do I get a keepsake made?

1. Place your order

2. Send your precious items  to:


3. Once I pick up the parcel from the PO BOX, I will let you know that it has arrived.

4. When I get to your order in line, I will make your keepsake and send back to you with any leftover materials and I will advise the tracking number. ALL PARCELS FEATURE SIGNATURE ON DELIVERY AND INSURANCE

5. If you wish to give a Keepsake as a gift to someone, you can also purchase a gift voucher from our shop.

How many pieces of clothing do you need?

Baby clothes

Your Baby clothes keepsake will be made from your baby’s special clothes and can be personalised with their name, dob, weight or anything you would like (just add Personalise my Keepsake to cart and leave the details in notes at checkout)

To make your keepsake classical bear I require 6-7 items of clothing and for the miniature bears 1-2 pieces of clothing

To make your keepsake cushion I will require 4-5 pieces of baby clothing.

Does all the fabric has to be same type and consistency? 
I’m very confident working with most types of fabrics and combining them. The only ones I really don’t work with are intimate wear and swimsuits.

Finer materials and stretchy materials (baby clothing and some adult clothing)  are usually backed with a super fine but strong interfacing to ensure longevity of keepsake

When we submit the pieces of clothing how do we know where you will use each piece on the final product? Are we able to say where we would like them used?

With me you can choose to have as much or as little input as you would like. I always ask first if you would like sneak peeks or keep the keepsake a surprise. Approximately 90% of the keepsakes I made, I have been trusted to use my own judgement in making them. In saying that, I work closely with my customers and I like to ask questions and to know which are the favourite items; if you have any special requests, if you want to share with me stories and special memories along with the clothing you send and so on. I had customers asking me to use certain fabrics in certain places of the keepsake and that is never an issue or concern with me as my main priority is that you have a keepsake you love and treasure forever. I would add that all the leftover fabric is nicely packaged and sent back to you and my parcels have insurance and signature on delivery.

If you are at all unsure if something will work please feel free to message me and I will help you narrow down to maximise the look and potential

Adult Clothing keepsakes:

To make your keepsake classical bear or miniature bear I need 1-2 pieces of clothing

To make your keepsake cushion I will require minimum 1 piece of clothing.
