In just a few weeks, the first of our 15 grandchildren will be married! Needless to say, it is all very exciting, and especially so as that grandchild will be the bride!
Yesterday was Chrissie's Bridal Shower and I wanted to make something special for her that she would treasure and that would also be practical and useful.
It was made with lots of love!
A sewing folder!
While Chrissie is not a stitcher, every bride needs to have on hand lots of bits and pieces for mending and the last-minute fix-ups - needle and thread, buttons and pins:
I had so much fun making this project and thinking of all the sewing essentials I could put in it.
I was so happy that grand-daughter loved it ... and I knew she wasn't going to get another gift the same as this one!
The folder was based on my Vintage Dream sewing folder with a bit of variation to fit everything inside:
If you think it's a good gift idea for a new bride, then you can find the pattern here.
I couldn't let it go with just one gift, so I also made her a pretty apron:
and used a Spoonful of Sugar's design to make an oven mitt:
Now I need to turn my mind to what I am going to wear to the wedding!
