Creating my own wedding accessories has been a bit stressful, but very rewarding when they are completed. I am having a peacock color wedding, (minus the peacock feathers since my friend has convinced me they are bad luck,) because my fiance has green eyes and I have blue. I found this beautiful satiny fabric at joanns and after a great sale took home 2 yards of it. This fabric was labeled as a tie dye even though I think that doesn’t do it justice.Swirls of chartreuse, teal, royal purple, cobalt blue and emerald green
with small flecks of gold flake
I took a 19” x 24” rectangle piece of fabric and after pinking all edges sewed the 19” edges together with a 1” seam, to make a tube. I then made a drawstring on both ends, stuffed them then drew the two ends tightly.
I took two matching, mother-of- pearl flake buttons and attached them with the cord to cover the small gap that cinching it created. I then stitched the two buttons together with ribbon to hold the top and bottom together. I also took 1/8” ribbon and made a tassel and attached it to the bottom
I love these fabric pieces I bought Stax bundles and added the green paisley and the middle piece left over from a beer garden skirt I made, its kinda hard to tell but there is a silver metallic running through the Stax bundle. I am planing a rather large square quilt, to showcase the top right corner paisley.
I have been unable to do much for a few months thanks to a back injury, I have spent this time collecting fat quarters on sale, and organizing my craft room ( ill share a photo of that one day ) and practicing my embroidery and knitting from the safety of my bed. I have many many plans now and hope to belt out a number of projects in the near future.
