Save your loved one's favourite clothing or blanket forever by having them made into a one of a kind keepsake memory turtle!

The small size keepsake turtle is about 9" long including the head and can be made from something as small as a newborn sized footed sleeper, though we may need to supplement with a small amount of extra fabric.
The large size memory turtle is about 12" long including the head and requires an adult size small shirt or larger, or a size 18 month baby footed sleeper (two is even better!) or larger.

Please send AT LEAST the minimum amount of fabric required for each keepsake. If a small amount of supplemental fabric is required we can only offer plain white flannel. We'll use the pattern on the fabric thoughtfully and add safety eyes.

This turtle was created as a memorial keepsake for my daughter who passed in 2019. I gifted the turtle to her sibling on the 3 year anniversary of her passing. My son loves turtles so this was a great way to keep her close to him. The quality is great and Nestling Kids took great care with this precious memory.
