Can't quite give up those cute baby clothes, sentimental T-shirts, or other clothing items? Then you might want to consider having them transformed into a custom quilt.
Quilts by Kate talks about "memories you can cuddle up with," which may sound good to North American readers as autumn approaches. Kate can make you a quilt from T-shirts or neckties — or even a wedding dress, as shown above.
Quilt Keepsake makes baby clothes quilts, T-shirt quilts, and memorial quilts. Those memorial quilts could be made from all sorts of clothing: flannel shirts, ties, military uniforms, bridal outfits, etc.
Alix Joyal over at Mamaka Mills makes custom memory quilts, including military memory quilts. You can see more of her work on her blog, and on her Etsy site.
For links to many more quilt-makers, see the related posts below. And remember that these quilts take around 3-6 weeks to make — so if you'd like one for a holiday gift, start moving now before the quilt-makers get all booked up.
