I bought this pattern to make a gift for my niece. I’ve never followed a pattern before so was a little nervous but there was no need to be. (I actually messaged Rachel to check the instructions would be simple enough for me!)

Easy to follow with pictures and also includes a link for you to go online and follow instructions too. I’m so pleased with my make and really chuffed that I made it myself. Would definitely recommend and it’s the perfect lockdown hobby.

The 2 bears Rachel made for my 2 young grandchildren from my late husband's shirts are absolutely beautiful. Rachel listened to what I wanted and put so much thought, care and skill into each one, making them similar but not the same. She kept me up to date with progress and sent me photos. My grandchildren love them so much. Thank you, Rachel, for such amazing memorial bears. They will be cherished forever.

Rachel made me an absolutely stunning Christmas cushion from my daughters Christmas clothes from her first 3 Christmasses. She was extremely well organised, with a few questions to find out what pieces were extra special and she has such a good eye for detail, she sent me photos of every phase of the making and I couldn't be happier with the result, I'm now collecting the Christmas outfits from my new daughter to have another cushion for her in a few years
