For the Bride

Some one we know is getting married...and so there was a shower...and so we wanted to give a gift...we love giving gifts!  The person getting married lives far away...and it was suggested that she may not want to haul lots of things on the plane home with her.  This, I think, was a good suggestion - they probably frown on bride-to-bes getting on the plane laden down with teapots and mixing bowls and cookbooks and the like.

I put my brain to work to come up with a tiny gift that would be useful and easy to take home...
I made a pattern...
did some cutting...

added some embellishments...
and this is what I came up with!

A tiny little wedding purse that can fit in a pocket on a plane and no one is the wiser!
I had so much fun designing and making this...just the right size for some boo hoo tissues (for the good kind of tears of course!), a lipstick and a candy or two....ok... that is what I would put in my wedding purse - there might be a choice other than candy for this lovely bride.

You know the saying:

Something old
Something new
Something borrowed
Something blue...
and a sixpence for her shoe

This could be the something new...well there is the gown...and the veil...and the shoes...well one of the something news then.

Best wishes to our bride and groom....and if you need it I know where you can get a sixpence!
