Win a LoveKeepCreate Set
Direct2Mum have teamed up with LoveKeepCreate, to offer someone the chance to keep memories of their child as a baby, in the most beautiful way!
You buy them or get given them, they are impossibly cute and your little one looks adorable in them. Then, usually within about five minutes, they outgrow them. Some are passed on to others as hand-me-downs, some are covered in stains or bobbled from the wash and are consigned to the bin or cut up to become dusters! There are, however, always those couple of babygrows that your bubba seems to wear more than any other, or particularly beautiful little outfits they are given or wear for a special occasion. These most well-worn and special items of clothing are the ones that you can’t quite bear to get rid of as you sit sifting through the storage boxes.
The eternal question for parents therefore is what to do with those old baby clothes? Most of us end up just putting them back in the box and leaving them in the attic to languish with the old toys and spiders.
It was when Rachel's eldest son Freddie was turning one that she felt a big pang of sadness when she was boxing up his tiny clothes to put away. She spent ages picking them up and looking at them as each little outfit brought back memories of when he was tiny. She picked out a couple of her favourite pieces and borrowed an ancient 1970's Singer sewing machine and set about making a patchwork blanket for him.
She found it so lovely to see all his tiny clothes every day and snuggle up under them that she kept the blanket for herself. She posted her creation onto Facebook and received some lovely feedback from friends and family - a couple of which requested her to make them a special keepsake from their clothes.
The snowball had started and having always been a creative person Rachel set about designing her own patterns for the keepsake animals. Soon she was being swamped by orders from friends and family and got chatting to her best friend Merry - the two of them put their heads together as to how they could really make a go of making the beautiful keepsake creations available to everyone and here we are over two years later!
And so LoveKeepCreate was born…The idea is simple, you send in your cherished baby clothes and they are transformed into a keepsake. The clothes become beautiful keepsake animals, blankets, quilts and cushions. All of a sudden you can see those precious clothes out and about in your home, bringing you more pleasure and creating more memories.
