Towards the end of the year last year I was given the chance to send off some of Daisy’s old clothes and have them turned into a keepsake for her. I love the idea of creating keepsakes from old clothing. We had received a baby memory blanket before and been a real fan of it. My daughter Daisy sleeps under her blanket quite frequently and I love reminiscing over her tiny clothes. I chose a handful of old vests/sleepsuits and then I sent them off to Jessica from Babygrow Bunny Keepsakes to turn them in to a keepsake. Creating Keepsakes from old clothing is a wonderful idea and a great way to remember your tiny baby without cluttering up your life.
The process was super simple for me. All I had to do was send Jessica the clothing and then wait. Jessica had a baby after I sent her the clothing, which I knew about in advance. This meant that I waited a few months for my Babygrow Bunny to arrive. When it came it was well packaged and it was sent ‘signed for’ so Royal Mail brought it to my door safely. I had no issues with delivery and Jessica had sent me a photograph of the bunny beforehand so I knew what to expect before it arrived.
Here is a look at the finished Babygrow Bunny:
It has cute personalisation on the front, in the form of a ‘D’ which symbolises my daughter’s name, Daisy. This is a really unique bunny and it is a novel way to remember my tiny 5lb 13oz girl.
