Memory quilts are about holding on to the firsts. Letting go is hard, whether it's letting go of their baby clothes, or their hand as they grow into childhood and then adulthood. It's sometimes surprising how many memories clothes can hold. Kokobaru custom memory are a special way to re-purposed those special items of clothing into a functional keepsake.
How it works
1. You contact me! Initial consultation: choose size, layout option, discuss possible customizations
2. I require a $250 non-refundable retainer before I begin work/to secure your spot on the waiting list. After this is paid you send me your items (as many or as few as you'd like depending on layout choice)*
3. I work my magic (I give myself up to 6 months from beginning the sewing of the quilt to complete it...2 small children in the house make work time somewhat unpredictable at times)
4. Your quilt comes home to you. **
5. You love your special keepsake for years to come.
note: Also suitable for a personal memory quilt made with those concert tshirts you just can't let go of.
An amazing, one of a kind, they're never gonna forget it kindof gift. They make especially thoughtful baby gifts and gifts for those going through a tough time. A mish-mash of fabrics from the recipients family and friends are brought together into a special Quilt of Love.
How it works:
1. You contact friends and family of recipient and ask them to send you a piece of fabric for the Quilt of Love (it can be something from an old item of their clothing, or a fabric they've picked out that makes them think of the person, etc). I recommend having them send you an explanation as well.
2. You contact me and we hatch a crafty plan for this amazing surprise gift.
"I cannot think of a more special gift to give someone! I was lucky enough to receive a 'love quilt' as a gift after my daughter was born. Each piece of fabric has a story or special meaning behind it. Every time I wrap my baby up in the quilt, I feel like I am wrapping her up in love sent from my family and friends who contributed to the quilt. I will treasure my quilt forever."
