Gifts That Tie Generations Together

Getting as Much as Possible from Her Wedding Gown

Colleen Speer wanted to get as much from her wedding dress as possible. When you only have one, sometimes it makes sense to think about the future. We made her future grandchildren a unisex gown with a ceremonial robe. That allows her family to use the outfit for any child/granchild/great grandchild. In addition, we made a boy's confirmation tie, a bib, three kerchiefs, a pretty headband and a coursage pin that incorporated a bit of each of the major elements of her wedding dress as a keepsake.Colleen Speer wanted to get as much from her wedding dress as possible.

When we had finished making a number of heirloom gifts from Katrina Sotomayor's wedding dress, there were still some remnants. She asked us to use the remainder of the remnants to make several more gift items. These photos are of the two ring pillows and three jewelry pouches we made from the remnants along with a photo montage of the original gift items we made.

Linda Walsh sent her wedding dress to have a christening outfit made for her soon-to-be-here grandchild and future grandchildren. Her dress was made of a lovely, quality satin with lace. She sent me this note when she received the outfit:

"Liane the Christening Gown arrived. It is so beautiful! My mom, mother-in-law, and I all had tears in our eyes. My mom said it's as beautiful as the Royal Family's Christening gown 😊. I am so excited to give this to my daughter! God bless you and thank you for making our past part of our family' future." Linda

Karen Pierce sent us a rabbit fur coat with the following note:

"The fur was my dads (I believe it was his grandmothers). My dad passed in April 2017 and I'm making the bear for my sister. She does not know the bar is coming--it's a surprise."

We hope that her sister was pleasantly surpised.

Caitlin Tomassi sent her wedding dress to have a christening dress made for her daughter. Her dress had lots of lace so we took advantage of it to make a full, lacy skirt and lacy sleeves. We also used the crystal beaded piece by reducing it and putting it on the waist. A shout out to my assistants Cassie for her work on the gown and Martha for a lovely bonnet. A job well done. :)
