Memory Quilt

I often get asked to make items from clothing as Memory Keepsakes.
This cot quilt and bear are Memory keepsakes but  are little different.
The grandma of the new baby girl who has just arrived, 
asked if I could make a Cot Quilt and Bear from her son's
favourite shirts.
Sadly, he died last year from a brain tumour.
He knew he was going to be a Dad so it made it a very
special commission for me. 
It was also difficult emotional cutting the shirts up but
once they started forming into a cot quilt and bear they 
made me smile. I am sure the new little girl is going to love them.
I also made a small hand bear that can be sucked, chewed and washed.
Best wishes to all.
