I have always wanted to have one of these keepsakes made once I had a baby. I had no idea it would turn out so beautifully. Rachel’s attention to detail is amazing and this giraffe will be cherished for many years to come. Thank you Rachel for helping us to keep our memories alive. x

We absolutely love the giraffe we had made out of our little girls clothing! The service provided by Rachel is excellent and the giraffe is finished to such a high quality, it’s amazing and looks fab in the nursery

I had 3 cushions made from my late mum's clothing. You were able to bring together so many different pieces of clothing and made them match perfectly. The attention to detail was brilliant. These will bring a lot of comfort and memories. I can't thank you enough

These keepsakes are by far the best quality keepsakes I've ever seen. I was able to say what items of clothes meant the most to me and the items took pride and place on the giraffes.

Rachel took on board my wishes for the clothes I’d painstakingly picked out. The finished item was way more than I could ever have imagined - the placement of particularly sentimental items, I couldn’t have wished for better.
