After all the machine sewing that has gone into my bibs and booties I thought I’d make the most of the sunny weather whilst still off work to sit in the garden and do some hand sewing. What better to sew in the garden than flowers! This is the first of my bridal bouquets about to be launched in my shop and on a new website coming soon (I’ll reveal more about that in the near future.) If you are a bride-or-groom-to-be and might be interested in handmade flowers for your big day then please contact me…
What a lovely day to get the inspiration going… after a long walk (well long hobble for me) to a local cafe and back, even if the pace got slower as I neared home, I decided to make the most of today’s sunshine and sit in the garden. With me I took some felt, thread and needles and started sewing away – before I knew it I had sewn quite a few flowers in prep for a bridal bouquet.However, I wouldn’t recommend yellow if you don’t want to attract the bees. Watch this space and you will hopefully see the final thing over the next week or so.
Have a great weekend.
It’s been a full but fun weekend of creativeness following the Royal Wedding on Friday. I didn’t think it was possible but watching the wedding made us even more excited about our own, and now most of the RSVPs are back it’s time to think about finishing all the handmade items for the big day. Numbers are slightly lower than we thought which means that a little bit of pressure is taken off. Having said that there are still order of service booklets to make, menus to do and the dreaded seating plan not to mention the nearly 90 favours to make, which is no easy task as they are in 3 parts – above is a taster of what has been occupying my weekend and last few weeks, can’t give too much away as I want some surprises for our guests!
Have a good week,
I love a good wedding… but one thing’s for sure it takes a lot of preparation to make a good wedding! I’m hoping that our wedding will be one of those fab events with lots of planning in little time, a bit of luck and a bucket full of creativity to help us on our way. My fiance doesn’t know what’s hit him, I’ve gone into work mode and feel like a project manager 24/7 now. I have to admit the creative bits are my fave, although I seem to be managing to give everything an artistic twist at the moment because I’ve promised I won’t take on any major creative projects until I am a married lady. The first major bit of wedding creativity can now be revealed as everyone should have received their save the date cards and invites already
In addition here’s a sneaky peek of what’s to come… watch this space as more handmade wedding bits are revealed. I’d also like to say a big thank you to all who have helped me with my flower so far, we’re over half way now!!
It’s Friday again already, where did the week go? I’m very excited to be going home this weekend to see my parents and spend some time crafting for our wedding with my mum and god-mother, as well as seeing a dressmaker about my dress for the big day! So, as it’s nearly Valentine’s day and I’m going to be making felt flowers this weekend (a sneak peek above) today’s Folksy Friday items are all felt based:
Zoe Howarth Accessories – Felt flower (great idea to brighten up an outfit or wear to a wedding)
Simply H Designs – Felt envelope (perfect for Valentine’s Day as it’s always good to send and receive something a bit different)
Tempo designs – Felt carrots (these just made me giggle, which is always recommended on a Friday)
Have a fab weekend
