You have some really cute stuff, cawfeehouse!  I really like your original floral centerpiece-- I think that the newer version has too many things going on, though.  What if you did half the tables with the bouquet with wine corks, and then the other half with the twirly twigs with wine corks in the container to carry that theme through?  I'd agree with your fiance about the pearls, though.  LOVE the flower basket-- super cute!

I used to make those in grade school, but would never have thought of it as a wedding favor! What a creative idea! Kudos!

Everyone's stuff looks so great! Speakaboo, can I steal about 75% of your ideas? Grin

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Alright, ladies-- I finally managed to get the hankie finished! 

The story: my grandmother and I were close until she passed away when I was 11.  Unfortunately, her wedding dress has deteriorated a great deal because it was never preserved so it can't be re-worn, or salvaged to use in the construction of my wedding dress.  So-- I decided to use a piece of her dress for my "something old".  My mother sent me a section of her lace that was in relatively good condition and I made a nosegay handkerchief from it.  The construction is not perfect (as you'll see) because I didn't have enough lace to make a proper border, but I managed to make it come together Smiley  I LOVE it!


Final product

The construction:

(close up of the lace)
I used two men's handkerchiefs to cut out two matching squares of fabric.  I used an iron to "hem" them.  I cut the lace in 4ths, and sandwiched the pieces between the two squares with one piece on each side:



Then I top stitched around the sides to finish it.

It may not have been the best construction, but I wanted to cut the lace as little as possible.  The middle square is admittedly small, but with two layers of hankie, I'm hoping it will be able to absorb a tear or two!

Yay!  The cardbox is finished (at last)!  It was sort of a disaster for a long time, because the spray adhesive I had used was cheap and didn't stick very well.  I managed to find some good ribbon to pretty it up a bit.  I still need to find a pretty bow to make it a little less... boring on top!

I have almost finished my necklace! I am going to work on inserting fanny pads in my undies so I am not such a flat-assed bride.
And right now I'm thanking God for the ability to sew two straight lines..that was a life saver. I used a  retangular peice of dotted/lacey fabric that was going to be for a veil to make a shrug to cover my gianormous linebacker arms!
It looks fantastic!
As far as the veil goes..I just hate my head with a veil..I'm skipping it and wearing a rhinestone and pearl headband..purchased for the veil..but fine on its own.

The day is Friday.

Now if I can not come down with the stomach flu that my Mom ( who lives with me) has right now!

I already have a nasty summer cold.

Diabetes+ wedding stress= kids in daycare= sick bride  ( at least it does in my case)

A few more crafts for my August 12 wedding:

Wreath



Guest book



Simple anklets with indian bells for the girls and I.  Not my original plan due to not finding a large linked chain, but I'm okay with them.



I don't think I've posted these yet, but here are our favor tags.  We're having sugar cookies and pillow mints as favors.

They were really easy...all I did was add the crystals

Purchase letter in your choice of size, font, material (metal, silver mirrored or gold mirrored)

www.weddingcuts.com

I then bought various sized Swarovski Crystals in 3 colors (Siam, Lt siam, Clear)

The proceeded to glue them on one by one with a pair of tweezers and glue I purchased form the letter place.
