Baby Clothes Keepsakes: The Pretty Little Polka Dot Way

Like most parents, you've probably got a bag or two of your little one's baby clothes stored somewhere. You cannot bear to part with them, but know they'll probably spend the next few decades hidden away.

We take these clothes and transform them into luxury Keepsake Quilts. We love doing it, and we’ve been told we're pretty good at it too!

They’re not just clothes, they’re memories

That trip home from hospital, the time they crawled, their first wobbly steps.

Looking through the outfits your little one wore during their important milestones can to transport you right back, stirring up those warm and happy feelings all over again.  

So, the thought of parting with these special clothes and sending them off to a stranger is a pretty big decision.  And we totally get that.

A Keepsake is For Life.

At least we think it should be! When it comes to having a Keepsake created, you only get one chance to get right. We're firm believers that if something's worth doing, it's worth doing properly and we truly believe your little ones Keepsake Quilt should be something you can look at, love, and treasure forever.

To us, creating your keepsake quilt isn't just about cutting squares and sewing them together. It's much more than that.

Baby clothes come in a whole manner of designs, styles and sizes. In many instances logos, motifs and other details don’t always fit conveniently into a neat 4 x 4 square. Our designs reflect this and each item is individually prepared to accommodate the important details. A cute Peter Pan collar? The ‘I Love Daddy’ logo? Not a problem! We'll create a whole range of differently sized patches, and the result will be truly spectacular, beautiful and unique.

Doing it this way is fiddly and does takes a long time, but we’re not about cutting corners (or logos)! And, in our quest to create you a little piece of perfection, taking the time to do it properly is something we'll always continue to do. In fact, we spend hours designing and preparing your little one’s clothes, even before making a single stitch. It’s all part of the Keepsake service.

Keepsakes with Personality

The thing we get told a lot is that a Pretty Little Polka Dot Keepsake has ‘personality’, and we smile every time we hear this. It’s difficult to explain, but seeing all your little ones clothes, and working with you, means we get a feel of who your little one is and this allows us to design something which goes far beyond just cutting and sewing the outfits you send us.

Over to You

Hopefully by now you'll realise we're super crazy about Keepsakes! We love designing them, we love creating them, and we love talking about them. And we'd love to chat to you about having your own special Keepsake created from your little ones precious baby clothes. Just get in touch.

Here's to the magic of memories. 

Love, Hayley

    Totally Gorgeous
    I found Hayley’s website by sheer chance and so glad I did. I had kept all of my daughters beautiful little clothes as I couldn’t bear to part with them. The quilt Hayley created for my daughter is absolutely beautiful and very special so much thought and love has gone into making it and you can see that from the totally amazing result.

    To top it off the presentation and wrapping of the quilt when I received it was lovely and thoughtful. The handwritten note to my daughter and binding heart was such a lovely touch.

    Hayley thank you so much, you truly are amazing at what you do!

    I can highly recommend using Hayley and I can’t wait for my next project ❤️
