Keepsakes made from a Wedding Dress

Happy Valentine's Day! 

To celebrate the day of love, let's share some heirloom keepsakes made from beautiful wedding dresses. The love, happiness, and family history encapsulated in the wedding dress is beyond measure, which is why they are saved so diligently and for so long. 

Heart Ornament Keepsake made from a wedding dress

Keepsakes like this ornament are a wonderful way to connect generations. When the tree is decorated each year, stories are told about the person the ornament represents. Sometimes we forget that our kids may not remember their great grandmother. A tangible keepsake reminds us to share stories about those Friday night sleepovers and special moments our grandmother shared with us as kids.

Why not have something made for you to enjoy from your own wedding dress? Let's face it, it is very rare for a daughter to wear their mother's wedding dress on their big day. It may not be the right size, a style the suits them, or they may just want a dress that is unique to them. Creating a wristlet or clutch from your wedding dress is a fun way to enjoy your special day every time you get dressed up. It can also be passed on to your daughter at her bridal shower.

    My wedding dress is 45 years old and not preserved. I have 3 grown daughters and 3 granddaughters. I would like something made for each of them, from my gown. Can you help me with making something for my girls? Thank you for any ideas and especially, your time. M.J. McGrath
