Susan Patricia decided to take full advantage of the materials from her dress when she sent it to us. She wanted a variety of items made for her children, grandchildren and future grandchildren. We made a couple of wedding garters, some embroidered kerchiefs and a ring pillow. We pulled the satin binding from three baby blankets and replaced it with the satin from the wedding dress. We also made a couple of sashes for future wedding bouquets, a Christmas ornament and a couple of zippered storage pouches.
We took the outside edges of some of the lace and created a satin ribbon to make the garters[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_1third]
The kerchiefs for her daughters have lace trim. All three kerchiefs were embroidered with the recipient’s initial and “Love Mom” on them.[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_1third_end]
The ring pillow used some of the lace and bead work.[/ezcol_1third_end]
We pulled the original binding off these blankets and put new binding made from the WD satin. We also added and embroidered heart label[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_1third]
