    Keepsake shirt cushions

    I have just received my cushions made from my dads shirts. He passed away last month. I had 5 made, 1 for each of my brothers, my mum and myself. Sarah did an amazing job. Got a tad emotional when I opened the box and see my dear old dads shirts. Thank you Sarah, il always have a part of my dad to cuddle now.

    Forever cushion

    I just lost my son very suddenly and contacted sarah to make me a cushion from one of his jumpers. It was just perfect and you could tell by looking at it when it arrived as to all the kindness and attention that was put into its making. Thank You.x

    Beautiful Memory of My Wonderful Dad

    I purchased a memory cushion from Sarah at 2greenmonkeys. I lost my Dad on the 9th December and a friend told me about memory cushions, I didnt even know such thing existed. But I looked into it and found 2greenmonkeys website through NOTH and I'm so glad I did because Sarah was so helpful and thoughtful and sent my Dad's shirts to her which was so easy to do and a lot cheaper than others I'd looked at. She sent it back to me when she'd finished and it literally made me cry it was perfect. So beautifully made and I would definitely recommend Sarah and 2greenmonkeys to anybody who is looking for a memory cushions. It seriously brings me great comfort. And would like to again say a huge thank you to Sarah for my beautiful memory of my Dad 😊

    I am overjoyed with the cushion made from my wonderful Grandad's old cardigan. The moment I received it and held it, all my momeries of him came flooding back. Such a lovely idea to keep him close to me and so we'll made. The care and attention to detail in the making of it is greatly appreciated.
