Christmas Ornaments

Christmas ornaments make lovely family gifts and we can use your wedding dress or any special garment to make pretty keepsakes for family members.  Each ornament is hand made and we try to incorporate whatever ornamentation we can from the original garment.  We currently offer two styles to choose from:

gillenwaterm-ornament01webOur Victorian ball works best for garments made of light and flowing materials like organza and lace and very light satin.  We wrap fabrics around a foam ball and use any lace, ribbon, buttons or bead work to embellish it. fabric-star-ornamentOur poinsettia ball works well with heavier fabrics like heavy satin, cottons and polyesters. We can use more than one garment to create contrast


We charge $35 each (plus shipping).

Tree Topper Angels

We can take some of your wedding dress (or favorite garment) and turn it into a Christmas Angel Tree Topper. They run from 10″-13″ tall. Unfortunately, I have a challenge consistently finding the same pre-purchased ceramic heads and hands.  The styles available change so I can’t guarantee a specific look.  I can change the hair color so you can choose from blond or brown or redish brown.  It takes about a 24″ x 36″ piece of fabric plus some of the embellishments that you might want included.

We charge $95 plus shipping.

Christmas Tree Skirts

Order formWhat better way to share an heirloom wedding dress with multiple adult children than by having it turned into Christmas tree skirts.  Every year, this special heirloom is not only beautiful, but meaningful.

We can use your garments to make unique Christmas tree skirts. Tree skirts come in the following sizes and prices:

24″ across = $120 each
36″ across = $185 each
48″ across = $225 each
52″ across = $285 each
60″ across = $325 each

Shipping is $15 for the first skirt and $3 for each additional. To order,  Click Here for a PDF Order Form

My measurements are based on measuring across the full circle from edge to edge. So, the measurement from the tree trunk to the outer edge of the skirt would be approximately half of the total measurement. This means a 48″ skirt measures 24″ all the way around from the trunk.

La Befana The Christmas Witch

A couple of years ago, a woman asked me to make a custom doll based on a Christmas story from her childhood. I was not familiar with the Italian story of La Befana, the Christmas Witch, at the time. Now, I get to make several versions of her each year and I love it.  Each 20″ La Befana Doll is custom made. Clothing colors and fabrics will vary.   It will usually take 4-5 weeks to get her to you depending on how busy things are around here.   If you are interested in having me make her for you,
here is an order form for you to print. 

I charge $185 for the doll and $15 for shipping.

Linda Chung sent her late aunt's clothing to have us make bears and a pillow for her aunt's grandchildren and family. We mixed and matched the garment fabrics to make each bear different but used one garment in common for the foot pads, paw pads and ear pads.

We knew the pillow was going to an adult male so we mostly used the red fabrics instead of the pinks. One shirt had a playboy bunny graphic that we broke up into four pieces and turned into appliques for one side of the pillow.

Linda Conroy found us through Etsy. She sent her wedding dress to have us make our Gown, Romper combo. Linda's WD was made of a soft satin with cut-away lace and bead work. It was a challenge to keep the original hem line because the hem was mostly on a curve. However, with careful planning, we were able to do so.

I don't normally like to put a lot of bead work on the bodice because it becomes a challenge to clean. However, since it was the smaller, princess style, we kind of went all-out.

For the romper, we pulled some of the lace to put on the faux vest. This soft satin makes a lovely romper. The combo included a matching bonnet and we also made a bib.

Ingrid Vezina sent her wedding dress to have us make a christening gown for her daughter. The wedding dress was very ornate with embroidery and bead work in layers. I didn't get a photo of the back of the dress and should have because it was multiple layers of bead work and embroidery. The fabrics were also very heavy. In order to capture some of the lovely bead work, I had to really cut with precision. I wanted to keep the gown from getting too heavy and that required taking the panels apart and using the thin under layer as lining. In addition to the gown, we made a matching bonnet, head band, dialper cover and bear.

Gail Goldsberry sent her wedding dress from 1982 to have us make a christening outfit for her granddaughter. Gail's dress had a few stain issues but we were able to work with the materials available. This high-quality satin and corded lace made such a lovely little gown. We also made a headband, matching booties and a protective bib.
