Penn State Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

Creating your Memory Blanket

You have saved t-shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys, pjs, golf shirts and more for years.  Now you are ready to create your special gift. What next?

If you live in the Philly area, you bring your clothes to our studio and we go through all your things together to choose the gift that best fits your needs.  If you are mailing your clothes, we chat on the phone before beginning your project.  Click here for our contact information.

Then, the creative process begins…

We custom cut your memory blanket squares to maximize the size of your blanket and ensure your logos are nicely displayed.  Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

Have a shirt that is smaller than the rest?  Want to add a patch or small piece of clothing?  We appliqué your smaller items on to your blanket.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We can combine two, three, or even four pieces of clothing to create one fun square.  Some examples of items to combine:  a home and away jersey, the pants and shirt from an outfit or pjs, two shirts from the same place in different colors, or four chest logos.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We appliqué names and /or numbers from the back of your jersey onto the front to fully represent your team experience.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We back your blanket in a cozy, soft, high quality, pre-washed flannel in your choice of a variety of colors.  Your blanket will showcase a three inch border of your backing color.  This border creates a beautiful “frame” for your work of art.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

You can choose the direction of your blanket.  Your logos can either face one direction (great for the twin and queen sizes), or face in different directions (the preferred display for the large throw blanket size).

Memory Blanket Special by Once Upon a Time Creation

Valentine Surprise

T-shirt Pillow by Once Upon a Time Creation

This is such a great Valentine’s surprise.  Alison had this fun pillow created for her hubby from tees of their “life before kids”:)  The pillow is two-sided and includes t-shirts from things they would do when they were dating, places they went on their honeymoon, and lots more.

Can you feel the love???

Alison also had this Memory Blanket created.  It is a visual timeline of her life…schools, jobs, and favorite things!  Would love to be a fly on the wall as she tells her kids of all the stories behind the Blanket.

Enjoy your Memory Blanket, Alison and welcome to the Once Upon a Time Family!

Baby Blankets created from a Wedding Gown

Baby Blankets made from a family Wedding Gown

Michelle came to us with her wedding gown asking us to make something she could pass to her two children.  Even though her kids are still young, she could no longer store her dress, but wanted to save it for sentimental reasons.  After discussing some possible ideas, Michelle settled on two baby blankets and a bridal bag.

The dress was made of silk with beautiful beading and a scalloped hem. Each blanket incorporates different parts of the beading and both blankets are edged with the scalloped hem and cinched at the corners.  The bridal bag is still in progress, and we will be sure to share when it is finished.

Thank you, Michelle, for the opportunity to create family heirlooms for your children.
