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.
