Bears, Dogs, Cats, and Elephants made from Sentimental Clothing

Creating stuffed animals from treasured clothing is one of the many services we offer here at Once Upon a Time Creation.  Bears, dogs, cats, and elephants have been made from button-down shirts, golf shirts, robes, sweaters, and other precious clothing.  This adorable pup was made from a wedding dress for a new baby. His collar is made from lace from the dress.  This lovable elephant was made from a sweater in loving memory of Mom. This fun-loving kitty was made from a button-down shirt and his collar is the sleeve cuff from a coordinating flannel shirt. This precious little one was given...

Hockey Jersey Memory Blankets

Hockey Jersey Memory Blankets are so fun to make. Hockey jerseys have so many interesting design elements to work with.

Graduation T-shirt Memory Blankets

Graduation T-shirt Memory Blankets

Graduation is such a fun time. Both grads and parents are filled with love, pride, gratitude, and hope. We love to help you celebrate this huge milestone through the creation of your Memory Blanket.  Most of my conversations about this precious gift start with "I can't believe they are graduating". The saying The days are long, but the years are short is never more relatable than when your child graduates from high school. Them as a baby seems like both yesterday and a lifetime ago. All the experiences they have had along the way have helped shape who they are, discover their...
