Frequently Asked Questions



How long do keepsake items take?

Please be aware there could potentially be a 3/6 weeks waiting list due to the volume of orders and time/care that goes into creating your beautiful keepsakes, but please contact me to question waiting time as this can vary. We aim to get your items back to you as quickly as possible.

They’re approximately 11 inches high when sitting, 15 inches standing.

We recycle all left overs unless requested otherwise. We will inform you of any unused clothing and it will be returned with your finished keepsake if requested.(please do not intentionally send too many items as this may occur additional postage costs.)

No I do not charge extra for names, DOB, weight and time. I also allow a few small sentences/messages please contact to discuss this.

Can we request fabrics to suit our requirements?

Yes, many of my customers send me descriptions/photos of what they would like e.g. a nursery room theme & colour, therefore I will create pillows/blankets/ taggies etc. to meet the theme of the nursery. I advise you to order the style of the item you would like on the website then please contact me straight away with special requests/requirements.


Can we request a product you don’t currently advertise/sell?
