2020 ReCap – Some of our favorites

2020 ReCap – Some of our favorites

Ok, I like to do a wrap-up post of the past year here at Fairy Godmother Creations. 2020 was a rough year in a lot of ways. Sales were down quite a bit. COVID-19 shut down Christenings and Baptisms so we ended up making a lot fewer outfits than usual.

We produced 92 Christening outfits and accessories this year (compared to 288 in previous years).

We made 297 bears and 114 bear accessories

We made 46 quilted items and 327 miscellaneous items like tree topper angels, ornaments, Christmas stockings, Tree Skirts etc.

Here are a few of my favorite projects from the year. ?

This little bear had it all. She was a gift from the client for his wife and he had a whole list of things he wanted us to try with it. I thought she came out really cute.

Although I generally love the angels we put out, this one was more unusual because we worked with something other than a wedding dress.

We made some really lovely Christening outfits this year, but I thought this one was especially lovely. It helps to have such lovely materials to work with.

We ended up making four quilts for this customer. They were all made from his fatigues and I was really proud of the way they all turned out.

I just loved the way this Christmas Tree Skirt turned out. Julia did most of the work on it. come to think of it, I think Julia did the work on the angel and ornaments as well.

This quilt was made from a late sister’s scarves. I actually made two of these (different colors) but this one was my favorite.

These were made from grandpa’s military uniforms and grandma’s nurses uniform.

These were made from a woman’s sons’ onesies. Her sons are much older now and she didn’t want to just get rid of the onesies so she asked me to make dinos from them.

This pony was made from a dad’s military outfit for his son.

This dino was made from a dad’s military outfit for his sons.

This was a new monkey pattern for me this year. I ended up making three of them. It is just a really fun gift to make.

These two were made from a dog’s bed. The family lost their dog and mom wanted two pups for her sons in memory of their beloved pet.

Fierce Angels From Knit and Apron

Fierce Angels From Knit and Apron

Susan July sent us a knit blanket and an apron.  She wanted them turned into Angel dolls for herself and her sisters. She wanted the Angels to be strong and Fierce.

Making angels from these to items was a big challenge but I was pleased with the way they turned out.

“The angel dolls came yesterday and they are perfect.  I really like the size of them; not too small at all.  I’m really looking forward to giving them as Christmas presents. Thanks so much.” Susan J July

Lovely Tree Topper Angel from Wedding Dress

VaruoloJ04web

Jessica Varuolo wanted some of her wedding dress fabrics turning into an angel tree topper. Since I like to make custom dolls as a hobby, this was a challenge that I enjoyed taking on and was pleased with the outcome.
Jessica’s WD was covered in organza layers so I kind of did a miniature version of her wedding dress with some creative liberty in order to make it work in the angel. The wings are wired so they can be posed.

Wedding Dress Converted to Christmas Gifts

EarlM01webMolly Earl wanted a number of items made from her wedding dress for the holiday season. Her order came in a little later so we had to hustle to get these done in time for Christmas.
We made a Christmas tree skirt, a tree topper angel, a ring pillow and a garter.
