A couple of weeks after I started working with Allie (the bride for whom I made the lingerie bags), I received a (secret) email from her fiance, Zane. He mentioned how much she loved handmade things and wanted to get her something special as a wedding day gift. We emailed back and forth, and he sent me links to their wedding registries. I noticed that they were registered for Fiestaware, and in the most beautiful, bright colors. I sent him a couple of different fabric combinations, and I knew right away what he would choose. He chose the Amy Butler Love line and the colors match perfectly with their new dishes.
I figure he must be a pretty good catch to go to such distances for his betrothed. ;) I made a label for the back of the quilt using this printable fabric, (picked up at Michael's) and I have to say that stuff is pretty darn cool. I hand-stitched around the edge to make it a little more secure and I am so happy with how it turned out.
After I had delivered the bridesmaid bags to her, he emailed me back and asked if I could make another bag for her, too, since she loved them so much! Nothing makes me happier than when someone enjoys what I make for them. :) They went to Jamaica on their honeymoon so I thought a swimsuit bag would be fitting.
Congratulations to a super sweet couple and I'm so glad I could play a small, handmade part in your special day!
