Wedding Planning...

The flower girl dresses came together SO nicely! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!!

I love the ruffles at the top and bottom!

I also put together a book for my bridal showers since I do not have a traditional guest book for the wedding...

Flower Girl Dresses

So I looked and looked at stores for flower girl dresses and everything I found was either too plain or not what I was looking for. So I began searching online and I found this dress on Pinterest

I showed it to my mom and we discussed making it. But this dress is only made of tulle so really we would have to make two dresses, one tulle and one for under the tulle. So we went to look at patterns and I found a dress that was similar but different and we decided to make it instead. Here's how it looks so far...

The dresses will be shorter and the only thing missing is the ruffles at the bottom. I also got zebra and pink flower clips for their hair. =D

Here are my precious flower girls trying on the dress!

I FINALLY Finished Another Project

I finally finished another project and I made it basically all by myself (with a little guidance from my mom)!!! I have two ring bearers so I made a pillow for each of them. They are about 8x8 inches and I used leftover fabric from the ties, ribbon, and hair clip flowers. Pretty simple and I think they look so cute! =D

So the adult ties are finished and we have started another BIG project!!! We are borrowing some table cloths but they are cream instead of white and I really don't want the tops of my tables to be white (or cream) so we are making overlays! Here is the start of our project...

That is the fabric we are using...

That is our huge pattern made of 6 poster boards to cut around the edges before sewing them under...

It's SO cute!!!!!

Wordle: Wedding <3

Zebra Ties

So over Christmas Break my goal was to work on as much wedding stuff as possible so I won't have to stress about it during my student teaching.  Well I haven't accomplished as much as I would have liked to but we have a BIG project going on right now...  ZEBRA TIES!!!!  I am super excited about these because 1. They are zebra and 2. They are handmade by me and mom which makes them 3. Totally original!  We didn't even use a real pattern or anything.  Instead we cut up an old tie that has been hanging on my doorknob for years and went with the flow to create a zebra tie with a hint of pink on the back.  =D

I cut out felt for the inside of the ties

Yeah it was so much fun

Ever wondered what a tie would look like if you ripped out the stitching and ironed it completely flat?  Well now you know.

Trying to figure out the best direction to cut the ties

That is one beautiful completed tie!

The backside with a touch of pink.

My dad modeling the tie =D

I am very delighted with the way they are turning out!  But there are still many more to make!  We are making 10 adult ties and 2 bow ties for the ring bearers.  =D
