Flower girl basket! Mommy is the bride!

What a treat to do this little basket! Thank you so much again Laura for thinking of me!

This little basket was made for the baby of the bride-how sweet she must have looked carrying this down the aisle!

This small basket was painted white and has a white interior and exterior liner. I put an insertion lace between the outer and inner liner to separate them and wove a coral satin ribbon in and out through the lace to finish the look.

The wedding colors included a soft coral pink so I did the  words ” Here comes the Bride….my mommy” and the flowers in the same color.  The lettering was hand embroidered in a wrapped dotted stitch in a French script.  The bride’s bouquet and flower girls flowers (in her basket) were done in french knots. The bride’s dress was done in a beautiful white satin silk ribbon in a straight stitch over top of lots of straight stitches in regular embroidery floss to make it pop up a bit and give it more of a 3D effect.  I just love the look of this silky dress! The little flower girl’s dress is done in straight stitches with a silk ribbon sash and bow. The bride and flower girl both have french knot white flowers in their hair.

The scene is framed with a mossy green dotted wrapped stitch with french knot buds here and there in coral and silk ribbon roses embroidered at the corners. The basket is finished off with side ties of coral satin ribbon.

Best wishes to the bride and groom and to mommy’s little sweetie!

3D Wooden Letters

I have been wanting to do these little wooden letters for ages. They are hand drawn, then cut out using a scroll saw and a drill to start the holes. These are perfect for learning your letters-upper and lower case (which most blocks, for some reason, only have the upper case letters), and are great for learning to form words and learning the sounds as well! We still intend to paint the letters, but we’ve already begun to play with them!!!

Peacock Painting

This peacock painting was done for Aunt Lori. She loves the blues and greens and the peacock offset a bit. This painting is done in layers of acrylic paint and permanent markers for a bit of a 3D effect. Enjoy Aunt Lori!

Claudia’s dress!

This sweet dress started out as just a “under dress” for a dress that needed a bit more puff. I added silk flowers, with french knots for stamens, french knots of different lavenders and white throughout the skirt, along the waist, the top of the bodice, and to the hem of the dress. For the neckline I added a double wrapped dotted stitch in two different colors of purple.

I’m still hoping to get a picture of the pretty young lady in her custom Father/Daughter dress! Hope you had a great time Claudia and JR!
