MOM’S BIRTHDAY OR CHRISTMAS GIFT
One of the fun things about repurposing is the different ways and ideas that my customers have in mind. I love the challenge of looking at each wedding gown, group of tee shirts, dad’s ties or shirts and pretty much anything else people bring me. It could be a set of sheets or in this case a picture hat worn instead of a wedding veil.
This wedding dress was very simple with no adornments, pearls or sequins but had beautiful ruffles on the sleeves and bottom of the dress. However, it also had a picture hat with flowers and lace. My customer asked if I could do a pillow combining these flowers, lace and ruffles from the dress.
To the drawing board I went and came up with this design. How lovely to have this beautiful pillow displayed in her bedroom to remind all of her family of their wedding day!
