Gifts That Tie Generations Together

quilting and patchworkOrder form

Quilting boxQuilting and Patchwork have been traditional ways to recycle old garments for hundreds of years.  It was a practical way to use any use-able fabric from an old shirt that could no longer be worn.  Now, it is a lovely way to remember the person who wore the clothing or a lovely way to remember a span of time like High School.  We can turn grandpa’s old shirts into blankets for family to share, hug and cuddle in and remember him by.  We can take some of those band uniforms & t-shirts and turn them into a warm, comfortable blanket your high school graduate can take to college.  Use a wedding dress or clothing to have Christmas tree skirts made for family members.

Baby Blankets & Quilts $215-$245

Order formHaving a baby blanket made from a late loved one’s clothing can be a beautiful shower gift and a way to include the memory of that loved one with the coming of a new generation. Baby blankets made from a treasured wedding dress are also a popular baby shower gift. When made from wedding dress materials, these blankets are more decorative and shouldn’t be used for baby to sleep with unsupervised.  However, wedding dress fabrics make beautiful quilts.

Quilts take a considerable amount of time so I have to be able to adjust my schedule to make one. To order pillows or quilts, Click Here for a PDF Order Form

Memory Blankets & Quilts

Order formQuilts made from clothing can be a lovely way to preserve memories.  Memory Quilts are very popular at graduation time.  You can give your high-school graduate a warm memory of their years in school by turning those old t-shirts into a quilt that should last a lifetime.  A Memory Quilt can also be a lovely way to wrap up in the memory of someone you have lost and want to feel close to.

Wall Hangings

I have not made a lot of decorative Wall Hangings but it is an interesting way to keep and display the materials from one or several garments. I like them because every one is a challenge.  However, it is also very difficult to price this service up front because I consider each one an individual textile art piece.  My Fabric Wall Hanging pricing is based on either a flat, patchwork and applique or a 3-D sculpture.

for a Flat/Applique design Fabric Wall Hanging I charge

  • $155 for an 18″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $195 for a 36″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $215 for a 36″ square.

For a 3-D Sculptured design I charge

  • $195 for an 18″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $235 for a 36″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $265 for a 36″ square

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.

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.
