Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Although the majority of my posts have been wedding related recently, and this one is no exception, I promise this is not turning into a wedding blog. With all the wedding projects I have been in the middle of, there hasn't been much time for anything else.

My friend's sister got married last weekend and she wanted to give her something special. She had written her note but wanted a creative way to give it to her. We decided to make a handkerchief by printing the message on fabric. I had a large collection of vintage handkerchiefs from my grandmother that I used, giving her the "something old". Then I took a strip from my friend's wedding dress, along with a button, to create a flower and the "something new". Next, we tied her high school promise ring from her husband onto the flower with a piece of blue ribbon. That took care of "something borrowed" and "something blue". Around the printed message, I added a pink stitch and a green stitch to include the bride's wedding colors. Apparently, she absolutely loved it and adored the sentimental value.

  1. Lauren, I think this is so lovely and creative. Keepsakes like this are so special, and I am sure that Nina will keep this forever. Girl, you are so talented!!! :D

    I hope you had a blessed Independence Day weekend.
