Who doesn’t love a wedding? For those of us who sew, it’s one welcome opportunity to make special gifts. Sandee, my sorority sister (a neat discovery made through this blog!), has used a fabric I covet to make some wonderful items for newlyweds.
When she sent these gorgeous pictures to me, I just had to ask permission to share them with you. Can you imagine how pleased the young couples must have been?
