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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 and sent to you within 10 weeks (this occasionally may be a little longer due to high demand) via recorded delivery. If you need your keepsake item before this time, please let us know in the requirements comments box when placing your order and we will do our best to accommodate your request. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
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.
my wife was over whelm with the bunny, it is gorges and the finish is a credit to you Helen. This is definitely a keepsake for our family for years to come. We cannot thank you enough .
Keep well and Safe
I am so inlove with my bunny, it is faultless.. hightly recommend. Communication was amazing. It’s always a little daunting sending of your loved ones clothing as they are so precious to you. But I couldn’t had been more happy!
Lily Grace are amazing at what they do. Not only do they produce the most beautiful keepsakes, but the care and kindness shown throughout was greatly appreciated at a difficult time. As a family we ordered a number of bunnies, bears and a cushion, and each one is more beautiful than the next. Thank you Helen
Absolutely brilliant. Communication was next to none and I would certainly recommend Lily Grace Keepsakes. I am so pleased with my keepsake bunny. The care and work that has gone into making my bunny is absolutely beautiful. Thank you.
Had a Bunny made for a dear friend from her mums favourite outfit which was entrusted to me. What a beautiful outcome Miss Bunny is. A fabulous thank you to Lily Grace for making such a special meaningful gift my friend will treasure.
Thank You xx
A very professional and caring service, the items they have are beautiful. The teddy I ordered was amazing and I could tell the care that was taken in the making of it .
Helen is a lovely lady that will help you in anyway she can, even with a customer that couldn't make up her mind .
All I can say is that if you are looking for a special keepsake, you can buy from this company with confidence.
My daughter and I are absolutely thrilled with the Bunny made from some of my late husband's clothes. It is beautifully and carefully made and will be treasured for the rest of our lives. The service was fantastic and the communication spot on. We cannot recommend Lily Grace Keepsakes highly enough. The Bunny was the star of the show at the Celebration of my husband's life, and as a result I am sure there will be many more people looking to commemorate their loved ones with a Lily Grace Keepsake. I wish I could show everyone a photograph. Thank you so very much. Lesley and Emily
I had 3 bears made, 2 for the kids & 1 for me as a keepsake of their daddy who passed away. I cannot rate the quality of these bears high enough, they are truly beautiful & I’m so pleased I used Lily Grace Keepsakes to make these special treasures for us.
Decided to have a bear made for my niece after I received my original bear. From start to finish the experience was easy and straight forward. The quality and workmanship could not of been better. Helen kept me informed of the progress and posted photos of the completed so I had a preview before I received them.
Although it took a long time to make, it was well worth the wait. I love the fact that it completely reminds me of my mum. People have been commenting that it’s like having my mum in the room! I love, love, love it.
It was a great experience from start to finish dealing with Lily Grace and my bunny, made from my mum’s clothes, is superb. I appreciate the care taken, and they made a sad thing more bearable. It has been much admired.
I have had similar things done in the past and this is the best, by far.
I wish Lily Grace continued success. Thank you.
