Downsizing or Moving?

Are you or a family member downsizing or moving? 

Whether you are now an empty nester, seeking a simpler way of life, helping loved ones move into a smaller place or assisted living, or moving into a new home, going through years of memories and stuff can feel like a daunting task.

While we may not be able to help you with furniture or that box of old trophies in the attic, we CAN help with the clothes and textiles you have saved. 

Here are five types of clothing that may be tucked away in your closet, attic, or basement. By transforming this clothing into something new, you are able keep or share your memories with your family and clean out your storage. It's a win-win!

1. The Wedding Dress

Whether you have your dress, your Mom's, or your Grandmom's, the love and history it holds is special beyond words. Once Upon a Time Creation can transform that dress into a multitude of gifts your family can enjoy for generations. 

A christening gown or blanket, pillows, ring bearer pillow, wristlet, clutch, and ornaments can all be made from your wedding dress.

2. T-shirts and sweatshirts

So many of us gather t-shirts from events such as races, concerts, vacations, and so much more. They hold precious memories of fun and accomplishment. Once Upon a Time Creation can turn them into a memory blanket or pillows to help you commemorate the good times and also clean out your own drawers or get that bin of your kids' stuff out of your attic.

Our memory blankets are soft and cozy. They are made to be used and loved as part of your daily life.

3. Fur Coat or Stole

The fur that has been passed from you mother, grandmother, or great grandmother may be sitting in a closet now, but it doesn't have to be. We can transform it into gorgeous clutches and pillows for yourself and your family.

4. Clothing from a lost loved one

When we lose someone we love, one of the hardest things to do is go through through their clothes. There is always something that is just too special to pass on. Maybe it's a shirt, robe, apron, dress, or a collection of everything.

Once Upon a Time Creation wants to help you transform those sentimental pieces into beautiful, functional keepsakes you and your family can enjoy in your daily lives.
