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.
Kelly DeBenedictus send us some clothing from her late parents to have these bear made for her children to give to their children. We combined fabrics from all the different clothing to make sure that each bear had something from every garment. Since there were three bears, we also picked a primary garment for each bear to use as a solid accent color.
