Our Memory Cushion made from a garment worn by a loved one is a lovely way to feel close to someone we have lost through bereavement, emigration, travel or working away from home.
When a loved one passes away, sometimes we want nothing more than to hold them one more time. Our Memory Cushion is a lovely way to feel close to someone we have lost by using the sense of touch.
If you have a garment worn or favoured by a loved one, we can re-create a beautiful cushion, leaving the main design of the shirt intact, that is a gorgeous tactile reminder of them.
We can generally make them out of literally anything! We have created gorgeous Memory Cushions from shirts, Tshirt, uniforms, jumpers, blouses, woolly cardigans, nighties, tablecloths, fleeces, pyjamas. If they wore it we can usually use it.
Available with or without additional embroidery, we have a couple of popular poems to choose from that you can see in the photographs or if you have something personal to write please add this detail in notes and click Additional Embroidery.
The Memory Cushion is also a valuable reminder of a partner who works away, a son or daughter who is travelling or a friend who has emigrated. We can also further personalise your new cushion with embroidery, please remember to complete the personalisation drop downs.
The cushion would also make a great retirement keepsake gift if it could be made from a branded work shirt or uniform!
The cushion is 16" and feather filled. If you would like a polyester option please write this in the Notes section on your order.
We wholly understand the value to you of your original items you send to have keepsake items created and we promise to take the very best care of them once they are in our possession.
We can personalise your cushion with a Name or date or some people like to have poems.
