Welcome to Gro & Sew Keepsakes

Do you have a large number of precious baby clothes tucked away in a vacuum bag, just too dear to pass on? Can't bear to let go of a loved ones clothes, but don't actually get the chance to appreciate them? A keepsake made from these cherished items gets them out of the cupboard, and puts them into an item which can be seen and touched, bringing those wonderful memories to life again.

Each keepsake that I receive a request for incorporates a variety of different sized pieces, cut by hand, from the clothes that you send me. As the keepsakes are hand made it gives the opportunity to include details such as (but not limited to) motifs, lettering, bows and frills. I will always do my best to accomodate any particular details you want (or don't want) included from the clothes that you provide.  

Once the pieces are cut and the fabric is stabilised, your keepsake is carefully stitched together.

I am also able to embroider details such as names, date of birth, time of birth and birth weight. I embroider by hand as I feel this gives a more personal touch. 

Applique work also gives me the opportunity to incorporate any parts of clothes which would otherwise not 'fit' within the patterns that I use.

To make your keepsake bear or animal even more unique, I can weight it to your baby's birthweight.

Have a look around the site, and get in touch if you have any questions or would like to order a keepsake.

Important: The keepsakes that I make are not intended as toys. They are not CE tested and are not intended for use by persons under the age of 14 years.
