It's a wedding garter I been busy making as a gift for a friend who's getting married next month. The idea is from an old Classic Inspirations magazine.
I hope it fits!!!
I used cream silk dupion
and embroidered it with ribbon roses and bullion roses
detached chain and seed stitch
I had an awful job getting a nice gift box locally!
I found one that wasn't too bad in the end.
I'm really looking forward to the wedding. It's taking place in this castle in Scotland, and we're getting to stay the night there, yipee!!!
There is one little problem...I haven't been able to find any shoes to match my dress! So here looms another challenge. In desperation I bought a pair of cream satin shoes and now have to try and dye them and then maybe embroider or embellish them. Haven't been able to get any shoe dye either, but no problem, I'll improvise with some fabric dye and a marker pen! You can see why I'll probably have to embroider and decorate them now!
Well I'll keep you all posted. I'm sure you could do with a laugh!
