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.

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.

Michelle Darling sent me two onesies from her twin grandchildren to have a little bear made from them. With onesie bears, I try to keep the original footies as much as possible. That can lead to some different shaped feet, but that also ends up being part of the unique charm to the onesie bears. ... See MoreSee Less

Heather Meyer sent us her wedding dress to have a christening gown made for her daughter. The wedding dress was made of satin with chiffon and mesh. I normally avoid putting ruching or heavy pleating on an infant's gown because little hands can get tangled in it pretty easily. However, the ruching was the primary decorative element of the original dress so I did try to capture some of it on the bodice. We also made a matching headband.

Jordan sent her late mother's mink boa and suede outfit to have us make teddy bears for relatives. The suit was an unusual turquoise color that went really well with the rich brown of the fur.
