Susan Patricia decided to take full advantage of the materials from her dress when she sent it to us.  She wanted a variety of items made for her children, grandchildren and future grandchildren.  We made a couple of wedding garters, some embroidered kerchiefs and a ring pillow.  We pulled the satin binding from three baby blankets and replaced it with the satin from the wedding dress.  We also made a couple of sashes for future wedding bouquets, a Christmas ornament and a couple of zippered storage pouches.
