Christmas 2010


Created very large, soft, bright colored prop pillows for our photography daughter who specializes in family, children, High School portraits.  It was decided to use primary colors which all children look fabulous against.

If you are in the Concord NH area, and need a photographer, feel free to check out her work at



From Jumper to Tote - June 2009

A favorite jumper is now transformed into a lovely tote for groceries, library books, etc.

Client requested that I maintain the side pockets for use on the tote.  These pockets already had velcro for closure.  The lining was a complimenting cotton fabric.  The straps were made from the same type of Khaki, but were created from a pair of pants that the client outgrew.

If  interested in having something up-cycled or re-fashioned, please fill out the Custom Order Form found on our custom order page.


Winnie-the-Pooh Costume

For our daughter Holly - College Freshman.

Our daughter didn't want the typical Halloween, evil type costume, but rather something sweet for the young children to enjoy.  The college where our daughter attends, provides a community service to the local children, by providing them a haunted walk.  The younger children will feel safe beside Winnie-the-Pooh.

Holly had a great time, and the children just loved seeing "Winnie-the-Pooh" when they arrived at the edge of the forest.

If interested in having a costume made, please fill out the Custom Order Form found on our custom order page.


Repair of Backpack near Zipper

Before Repair

Before Repair

After Repair

Backpacks don't necessarily last forever.  Sometimes repairing the item will allow a more economical approach to one's needs.

This backpack was tearing away at the zipper, fraying the fabric, making it non-functional.  By repairing the frayed area, and re-stitching back on the zipper, this backpack returns to one's functional needs.

NOTE:  It is not always the most economical approach to repair if you can acquire your backpack on sale.
