Lisa Duffy sent her late mother’s wedding dress to have a christening gown made for her son’s coming baptism and any future children and grand children. We incorporated the lace from her mother’s gown in the collar and down the center front.
Thought I'd share this blast from the past. A couple of year ago I made this custom doll to enter into a local competition. The rules of the competition were that we had to sew something using onlly a t-shirt, a piece of lingerie and a pillow case.

I'm really excited! Tomorrow my sister Jodie is coming to visit. We don't get to see much of each other so I'm looking forward to her visit--which means I may be distracted for a couple of days and not posting here much.

In addition to the gown and veil, we made a teddy bear and a child's purse. Unfortunately, I did not get a photo of the purse. ... See MoreSee Less
Craig Otis and his children sent us a jacket that belonged to his wife's father who recently passed. The bear was a gift for his wife. He asked us to give it angel wings so we did. ... See MoreSee Less
