How many items of clothing do I need to send?

This may differ depending on the product you are ordering whether it is an adult bear or a child's clothing keepsake, all the specific details you will need will be contained within the description of the item you are ordering however generally, for memory bears, we recommend using between 6-8 baby grows per bear (3-6 months size or larger) 8-10 grows/vests for newborn size.  We can create an adult bear from one item of clothing or if you would like a more varied pattern then you can send between 2 to 6 items. Please feel free to make notes with the clothes when you send them about which ones are most important to you.

Can I send you more items if I want to?

You can send more if you wish, this could be for either a more varied pattern combination, if you specifically want all the items to be included in your memory keepsake or want a certain item of your clothing to be incorporated. You must specify your requirements or which items you want us to use first within your package when your clothing is sent to us. Any items that are completely unused will be returned to you with your completed order.

What do you do if I send you too many items or not enough?

If you want to send more items that we recommend (6-8 items) please include a note when you send them to let us know which ones you want to be used first. If we are able to incorporate all of your items we will, but any items that are completely unused will be returned to you with your completed order. If you haven’t sent us enough fabric to create your keepsake, we will contact you and and ask you to send us a few more items.

What types of clothing can I send?
We can work with most types of fabric, all except for really thick items such as leather.  All of our bears are lined with interfacing which stabilizes more stretchy fabrics and enables us to create a high quality finish on all of our bears and cushions.

What condition do the clothes need to be in?

The clothing items you send us should be in a good condition that is suitable for cutting out and re-stitching together. If an item is in a bad condition, too worn or unclean and we think may affect the quality of our final product, we will get in contact to discuss further. If you are in any doubt about the condition of an item you want to send us or have any other questions about them please email us at to check.

How do I send you the clothing?

Please take care when sending your clothing items please pack them securely ideally in a box or plastic, brown paper does tend to tear in the postal system therefore we don't recommend this type of packaging and please always send by recorded delivery to minimise the chance of loss or any damage. We will also let you know when we have received them, this will be to your email provided when you ordered via our website. If you don’t receive your confirmation email, please contact us to check we've received them.

How long will my order take to arrive?

Once your clothing items are received, your keepsake will be created with the greatest care, our current turnaround time is up to 14 weeks (this may be a little sooner dependant on current demand) your keepsake is returned home by recorded delivery. If you need your keepsake item by a certain date, please pop a note in with your clothing items and we will do our best to accommodate your request. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Can my child play with the keepsake?

Your keepsake animal is for you and your child to admire and to treasure, however it is made from used clothing items, it cannot be CE tested and therefore it should not be treated as a toy. Some of our bears have moving joints and these are attached with a button and thread and therefore it needs to be treated very carefully. Your child may hold the keepsake to give it a gentle hug, but we advise that they be always supervised whilst doing so.

Memorial cushion

Cannot fault Lily Grace Keepsakes, I sent 4 personal items of clothing from my mums wardrobe who we unfortunately lost New Years Day to get made into keepsakes cushions and I must say the service was amazing from start to finish, I was kept informed from when they received garments safely to when items were cut ready to make and I must say I wasn’t disappointed with the end result, they are absolutely beautiful and a lovely way to have something personal made into something special, thank you LILY GRACE for making myself and sisters very happy and keeping mum close to us.

Wow! Absolutely perfect

Wow! I honestly can not express how happy I am with my 3 cushions I ordered to be made from my late Mom’s jumpers. I am just so overwhelmed with how beautiful they are. The care and attention to detail is second to none. Helen has made something so special that will be forever treasured, along with the wonderful memories of our dearest Mom who only passed away in November 2020. I cannot wait to see the faces of the recipients, my niece and sister. I am sure they will be over the moon!!! I honestly can not thank you enough, you have made it possible for us to feel and seek the comfort we need to know she is still here with us, always. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart

Memory cushion

A 5 star service Today I received my beautiful memory cushion made from one of my mums tops. I was worried about ruining it but decided to place my trust in Lily Grace Keepsakes and I’m so glad I did. They emailed me to let me know the clothing arrived safely and then kept me up to date with the process, let me know when it was finished and on it’s way home to me. I cried when I saw it, it’s so precious. It’s beautifully well made and provided such a comfort already! Such a fantastic idea to treasure loved ones clothing. Would 100% recommend and use Lily Grace Keepsakes again. Thank you so much for going above and beyond my expectations xx
