“Gamma make me a bear?”

“Gamma make me a bear?”

The other day, my phone rang and, when I answered it, a small voice said “Gamma make me bear?” It was my 4-year-old granddaughter. So, what is a grandma who makes bears supposed to do but spend the first free Saturday she has, making a bear. I think this one is about as tall as she is too. 🙂

Older Wedding Dress Made Into Christening Gown

Older Wedding Dress Made Into Christening Gown

Grant Duffin sent us a wedding dress and asked us to make a girl’s christening outfit as well as a decorative pillow from it. The gown was older and had a small amount of lace that we tried to use where it made sense. We did have to soak the lace to freshen it up a bit. Overall, I was pleased with how this little gown turned out.

Catherine Scholz sent us some of her wedding dress remnants to have a First Communion neck tie and short veil made from them. The fabric from the wedding dress was translucent so I had to back it with some satin for the tie.

Stacey Paradise sent us her wedding dress and this note:

“This is my wedding dress from 2003. I’d like an ornate gown, romper, unisex bonnet and bib for my future grand babies. I have 3 daughters but I also have stage 4 breast cancer I would like to discuss wedding items for my 3 with you with what I have leftover.”

We made the christening items along with some memory flowers for her daughters to use some day in their wedding bouquets.

  

A Christening Gown for Generations

A Christening Gown for Generations

Joy Scott sent her wedding dress to have us make an heirloom christening gown for her granddaughter. The original dress had some lovely corded lace but not much lace trim so I chose to make a lace element on the front skirt and put the lace on the gown bodice. We used up pretty-much all of the lace in this little gown.

Joy was kind enough to send photos of her in the dress originally and her granddaughter in the finished christening gown
