Transform your child’s clothes into an everlasting keepsake toy. Make a ‘patchwork bear’ of pre-loved clothing to create a special memento to cherish as a reminder of your baby’s first years, to mark a special occasion or in memory of a special loved one.
Melody is a perfect size to cuddle and bring comfort at a time of loss for children and adults too.
