A page from a small calendar was circled in red to mark the wedding day - August 16 and all the buttons stitched on were to signify the blessings that I hoped that they would be, and would receive as a married couple. A picture of the cake topper that they were having, an old fork (I just love old cutlery), some paper flowers etc were all added.
The back cover included a couple of photos of the church that they were getting married in, some vintage photos of children dressed up as brides and grooms, vintage lace, vintage measuring tape & beads, etc. I used lots of machine stitching to accent the pieces.....Oh and there was even a drop of my blood! Yes I pricked myself on a needle but covered it with a lace flower......lol!
I loved making and personalising this to become a special gift.
