Gifts That Tie Generations Together

Custom, Custom, Custom

Vicki sent her daughter's wedding dress to have an outfit made for her granddaughter's baptism. The dress was covered in beautiful lace and bead work. Vicki wanted an outfit that could be worn by either a boy or a girl so we suggested a unisex gown with a ceremonial robe. That allowed us to take full advantage of all the lace and bead work. The Unisex gown is our "Bishop" style with an ornate bib collar and pleats running down the front. The robe has longer sleeves and has the lace/bead work running down the front and circling the hem. We also made a unisex bonnet and a bib to go with the outfit. There was just enough scrap fabric left for two 14" pillow shams.Vicki sent her daughter’s wedding dress to have an outfit made for her granddaughter’s baptism.

Liane,

The box with the christening gown arrived safely, and I have to admit that I was nervous opening it up.  After all, we had spent a small fortune on our only daughter’s wedding dress and cutting it up was something I did  not want to think about… even though it was my idea.  So, as I slowly unwrapped the beyond-words-beautiful christening gown, coat, bonnet, and bib… I breathed an enormous sigh of relief… and cried.   My daughter, her husband and their children will have an heirloom that will endure way beyond my years.  Your design and craftsmanship is superb, and the whole ensemble will have a place in our family history.  Thank you so very much.

We will send pictures on the Christening Day of our beautiful granddaughter… and your beautiful creation!

Kindest regards, Vicki

Jennifer Francisco asked us to use her wedding dress remnants to make a custom Tree Topper Angel. The lovely lace and satin made a beautiful angel. She is about 11" or so tall. i really like making the angels. It is hard to find a consistent supplier of porcelain heads though so the heads can vary quite a bit. I like this particular one even though her head is tilted. ... See MoreSee Less

Susan Bertsch sent one of her late husband's shirts along with a tie and a piece of lace and buttons from her wedding dress to have us make a memory bear to hug. We made a larger, non-jointed bear and tried to keep him plenty hug-able. ... See MoreSee Less

Jennifer Franisco sent her wedding dress to have a baptism gown, romper combo for her future grandchildren to wear. Jennifer's dress had some lovely cut-out lace and satin with bead work. We tried to capture much of those elements in the gown with puffed sleeves and some of the beaded lace hanging over the waist. Capturing the original hem was a bit of a challenge, but worth it. For the romper, we did use some of the lace as applique on the faux vest. We also made a matching bonnet for the gown and cap for the romper and a bib.

Delores Capacchione sent us a small piece of fabric and lace from her wedding dress to have a special rose made from it. I fused the lace to the fabric to get the beauty and texture of the lace into the rose petals. ... See MoreSee Less
