Baby Quilt from Wedding Dress

Rebecca Lewis sent her wedding dress to have us make a baby quilt for her son’s coming baptism. She decided that a blanket would fit more future family occasions than a baptism gown. Her wedding dress had limited ornamentation so I decided to use it to create a decorative center element. We also embroidered her daughter’s name and her son’s name on a couple of the squares.

Angel Teddy Bear from Wedding Dress

This little 14″ angel bear was made for Judith Mosier from a wedding dress. When making a wedding dress memory bear, we try to use as many of the decorative elements from the WD as we can. In this case, there were some pretty lace details that we added to the tummy and to the back of the angel wings. The wedding dress fabrics that were left wouldn’t have made the prettiest wings so I used a pair of pre-made gold wings that we had on hand.

Jewelry Pouch and Bags Made From Wedding Dress

Diane Andrews sent her wedding dress to have three different size pouches made from it for her daughter’s upcoming wedding. We made a larger pouch for holding a curling iron, hair blower and other necessities. We made a smaller pouch for holding make-up and/or jewelry and we made a tiny pouch for holding the groom’s ring. There are a number of ways you can re-purpose your wedding dress for your daughter’s wedding–or even for your son.

Bridal Garter From Two Generations

Areddy C01

Claudette Areddy sent her wedding veil and her mother’s veil to have this garter made for her daughter’s upcoming wedding. We combined elements from both into the one garter so that Claudette’s daughter can have an heirloom from two previous generations to wear on her special day.

Wedding Dress Memory Flowers Worn By Family

Engle WD01These memory flowers were created from a wedding dress. Margot Engle and her sister brought their mother’s wedding dress to my studio looking to have floral Corsages and Boutonniere’s made from it.

Their mother had just been moved to a convalescent home. In cleaning out her home, they came across the wedding dress and, thinking they had some time, decided to have it made into floral pieces that the family could wear at their mother’s funeral when the time finally came.

Unfortunately, Margot’s mother took a turn for the worse about a week or so after they had left the dress with me. Olga and I put it into over-drive to get the flowers done sooner. Working day and night, we were able to move our scheduled finish time up considerably. About a half hour after I had finished the last boutonniere, Margot called to tell me that her mother had passed. The family had a lovely memento of a much loved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother.

My deepest sympathy goes out to Margot and her family.

Christening Gown Designed After Wedding Dress

Jillian Reynolds sent her wedding dress to have us make this christening outfit for her daughter. We tried to keep some of the design elements from the original dress in the gown. It is a challenge to make ruching work in infant wear, but I was pleased with the outcome. A pair of ruffle-butt panties and a lovely head band completed the outfit

Fairy Godmother Creations did a wonderful job on my daughter Mya’s christening gown. This dress is so special to me. I wore this dress on my wedding day and I was 4 months pregnant with my daughter Mya. I love this dress and what they did with it. We got so many compliments. This dress will be in our family forever!
