Quilting & Patchwork Gifts
We can work with just about any fabric. However there are some price considerations based on what type of garment you want turned into a blanket/quilt. Our basic prices are for shirt clothing (t-shirts, button down shirts) There is a higher price charged for wedding dresses, military uniforms and thicker garments like hoodies:
Wedding dress materials are not made for quilting and often not only need to be treated differently, but they are often used in a several layers to account for lace, mesh, translucent fabrics, slippery fabrics etc.
Military uniforms are extremely time consuming to deconstruct. They have lots of pockets and seams than need to be removed and opened in order to get the fabric flat enough to work with.
Thick clothing and Hoodies
Hoodies and sweat shirts and jackets can actually be turned into blankets, but they are thick and the blankets can be a bit more like a heavy throw. Because of the thickness, they are much harder to work with than other types of clothing.
Quilts take a considerable amount of time so I have to be able to adjust my schedule to make one. To order pillows or quilts, Click Here for a PDF Order Form
Baby Blankets & Crib Quilts
Having a baby blanket made from a late loved one’s clothing, wedding dress or military uniform can be a beautiful gift and a way to include the memory of that loved one with the coming of a new generation. Wedding dress materials are not fire-safety tested so these blankets are more decorative and shouldn’t be used for baby to sleep with unsupervised.

- Made from general clothing (baby clothes, t-shirts, pants etc.) I charge $245
- Made from heavy clothing, wedding dresses or military uniforms I charge $285

Wall Hangings & Table Runners
I have not made a lot of decorative Wall Hangings but it is an interesting way to keep and display the materials from one or several garments. I like them because every one is a challenge. However, it is also very difficult to price this service up front because I consider each one an individual textile art piece. My Fabric Wall Hanging pricing is based on either a flat, patchwork and applique or a 3-D sculpture. for a Flat/Applique design Fabric Wall Hanging I charge
- $130 for an 18″ x 24″ rectangle
- $160 for a 36″ x 24″ rectangle
- $190 for a 36″ square.
For a 3-D Sculptured design I charge
- $195 for an 18″ x 24″ rectangle
- $235 for a 36″ x 24″ rectangle
- $265 for a 36″ square
Fur throws are a lot more difficult to make than most people realize. Fur cut and sewn for a coat or stole is on an angle and cutting it into squares or rectangles actually doesn’t look that good. So, arranging the fur in a way that looks good takes a lot of work. Most full-length coats can get a small throw. If you have a jacket, the fur would need to be augmented to get such a throw and I would want to discuss the kind of fur (s) before giving an estimate.
I charge $325 for a small, plain throw (36″ x 48″).
If you have several furs and would like a picture wall hanging or throw made like the wolf one shown here, they start at $850. I can augment your fur with a variety of types and colors to achieve a picture effect. Call or email me to discuss how I can make a beautiful display piece from your fur.

Christmas Tree Skirts
What better way to share an heirloom wedding dress with multiple adult children than by having it turned into Christmas tree skirts. Every year, this special heirloom is not only beautiful, but meaningful. We can use your garments to make unique Christmas tree skirts. Tree skirts come in the following sizes and prices:
- 24″ across = $120 each
- 36″ across = $185 each
- 48″ across = $225 each
- 52″ across = $285 each
- 60″ across = $325 each
Shipping is $15 for the first skirt and $3 for each additional. To order, Click Here for a PDF Order Form My measurements are based on measuring across the full circle from edge to edge. So, the measurement from the tree trunk to the outer edge of the skirt would be approximately half of the total measurement. This means a 48″ skirt measures 24″ all the way around from the trunk.
