This One's for the Bride


Happy Monday Everyone!

As the month of June comes to an end, I'd like to give a shout out to all the brides out there. I'm dedicating this entire week to you with a bouquet-full of blah to Tada! ideas you can use to personalize your special day.


This week's blah is an old handkerchief.
Well, it's not exactly a blah when it's a special gift from an aunt or grandmother.Turn it into a Tada! by incorporating it into the wedding!


Make the handkerchief part of the bouquet.
Wrap it around the flowers & secure with a ribbon.

Tada! Something old & something new for the blushing bride!

    Hi Claire,
    I usually don't comment [as i type, stitch, etc. one hand].. but your handkerchief transformations have me totally blown away!!WOW!! I've been a hand stitcher/gifts on sewing machine gal for 38 yrs i guess and i have never seen anything like this!! I mean, move over Sewing w/ Nancy gal, as great as she is...I have been overwhelmed with nieces and nephews getting married these past 2 yrs, more next year-- and this will help me so much!!
    I don't have any vintage kerchiefs but i will haunt the thrift stores.. plus im sure i could use my vintage-ish pillow cases and just cut to size to do this , perhaps adding embroidery of my own if i feel it needs it.. but thanks a bunch!!
    It is ENTIRELY EXCITING TO SEE THE BLAH FOTO FIRST AND SCROLL DOWN TO THE EXCITING MAKEOVER FOR SURE!!!
    i will be going thru all your blogs now just to see what ive missed!!
    I'm so glad i found you [through Craft Gossip, which is an amazing source and so much fun].
    No kidding, Blah to Tada!!
    You are one special creative talented artist and your personality shines through.
    Thank you again so much!!
