Wedding Bells

My very good friend is getting married. If ye are she, then don't read on.

If you are not, then read on and please, gimme some feedback.

I'm embroidering onto a handkerchief. A little old school I know, but I thought, perhaps a little romantic, a little whimsical. I hope you don't say naff, that's not an adjective I want to be hearing! Oh and I am doing it in their wedding colours to tie it all in.

So I got a little scared about the initials, so am leaving them 'til last (hey why not work backwards?!). I bordered it with chain stitch, and have done the wedding date.. It's a little wonky I know, but is it endearing, or just plain ugly/wonky?


Help a bridesmaid out.

PS - Don't forget my giveaway. You can still enter. You can still help me declutter my house (I promise, no dustballs for you!).

i'm getting married and I would love one of my bridesmaids made me something like that I would be delighted! Something she could tuck into her dress on the day and then keep forever! and that could then be her "something blue"

I think that is the loveliest thing that you could do for a best friend.

Not naff at all. Only mildly wonky, but endearingly so! KEEP GOING - looks fantastic. The love involved in a handmade gift is priceless.

That's the kind of present that would make me cry. (Just to be clear they are tears of joy!) I couldn't think of a sweeter gift. Not naff in the slightest.

Definitely naffless/un-naff/anti-naff. What a beautiful idea. It will be a very special momento.

How nice that you thought to even make something for them rather than buying them a picture frame or candle stick holder- which I think are the gifts you give when you don't know the person at all- in wchih case you shouldn't be going to the wedding... i think it looks great!

I love it, wonkiness is a must. But, wow, you aren't a procrastinator like me...10 months to work on it, color me impressed!

It's a lovely thought to give something handmade. She's be crazy not to appreciate the gesture and you've got a great start.

I think it's a really sweet and lovely idea. A handmade gift to treasure for years to come. And your friend will think of you every time she blows her nose!

I think it's an adorable, sweet gift.
