I never know where to begin these types of things so I just sat with the fabric and let it begin to speak to me. I found a big platter that we use to eat boiled seafood with and used it as a pattern. I needed a big circle. For some reason I felt the purse should just be a simple draw string bag. I will try to put together a tutorial on how I made it.
Here is what I came up with for the bag...
For the pillow I had some satin fabric and some lace. Not sure what to make...think- think -think- she wanted something simple..Hmmmmm Here are the two ideas I ended up making...
The bride picked them all up on Monday. She is not yet sure which pillow she will use. I think I like the one that shows a little of the satin on each side.
These were simple to make and it was a quick project.
The wedding is this Saturday evening..I will try to post a picture or two next week.
I would love some opinions of what you think of these items.
