My name is Liane, I live in Dayton, OH. My husband and I raised three boys who are all adults now. Sewing has been part of my life since my mother taught me when I was 8 years old. Now, it is my daily profession. I love to take fabric and use it to create beautiful things for people to enjoy. I have been making teddy bears, dolls (and wardrobes) and unique gift items for over 50 years and I’ve been designing my own clothing and costume patterns for decades. This web site allows me to do what I love for people who want to share special memories or give special gifts to people they love.

About Fairy Godmother Creations
In 2000, I had a friend who inherited a mink stole from her late mother. She and I were talking one day and she was telling me that she didn’t know what to do with the stole. She wasn’t one to wear it even though it was in good shape, but she didn’t want to toss it either because she had some fond memories of her mother wearing it. In the meantime, it sat in the guest closet.
I offered to turn it into a couple of teddy bears and she was thrilled. That was the start of my journey.
Just like the Fairy Godmother turned a pumpkin into a beautiful coach, I turn an old garment into a new heirloom that can be shared as a way to tie generations together. Over the years, I’ve discovered that there is a real energy in creating an heirloom piece to help someone commemorate the memory of someone special in their life. Whether it is a group of memory bears for siblings to share or a beautiful heirloom christening outfit to help celebrate a very special family tradition, I enjoy helping families share special memories and moments in this way.
I hope you enjoy your visit to my web site and come back often!

Here are some fun ideas and patterns I’ve created over the years that I just want to share with anyone who wants to give them a try. Just click on the PDF and you can download the information.
In 2001, I created a PVC building kit for my three sons to play with. The idea was kind of like big Tinker Toys that could be hooked together to make frames and the frames could have hooks and clips to attach blankets for walls and ceilings so they could build forts. Along the way, I realized that the pipes could be hooked up to the garden hose and by drilling a few holes in some of them, it could become a sprinkler system. At the time, I put together the step-by-step plans for building the kit along with a complete list of supplies needed. Here is that PDF
