Oh, I have been quiet lately! I didn't mean to be, sewing and crafting have just taken a back seat the last few weeks while final wedding preparations are underway- 5 days and counting!! I did do a little sewing today though, so I thought I would share the gifts I am giving my two little cousins who are my flower girls.
Many thanks to planetapplique.com for the adorable appliques! This alphabet set was on sale for $8, however when I logged on Sunday to purchase it they were running a special and if you spent $5 you received this alphabet as a free gift- what perfect timing!
The files stitched up beautifully...
and I LOVE the little hemstitch around the flower.
On the back I stitched "Flower Girl" and the date, just for a nod to the occasion.
I was having trouble figuring out what to give the girls and finally decided to choose a few things to help them stay busy over the weekend in the hotel or even at the reception. I found a Disney Princess wedding paper doll set so they each got that, along with a Color Wonder coloring book (so they can't get anything on the borrowed tablecloths :) with sparkle pages, and travel tanagrams (because I had them when I was little and loved them). Hope the girls enjoy their presents.
