Here Comes the Bride

Here Comes the Bride Banner

A friend asked me to make her a banner for a young attendant to carry in her upcoming wedding, and I hope she is as pleased as I am with the result!

I backstitched the letters onto a vintage flour sack, and made fabric flowers for the top. Ordinarily I would sew the flowers, and stitch them on, but I experimented this time with hot glue. A glue gun is not normally my scene, but I’m short of energy, and therefore time! This isn’t going to need to go through the wash, so I think we’re safe.

Antique swiss lace scraps and repurposed tie silks are used as ribbons. The atmosphere of the wedding is to be whimsical and romantic. Does it work?

I wanted all of the letters to line up, so I designed it by hand. All that time my mom complained of me wasting making signs and letters growing up has paid off! I just wasted my mom’s time. Mine stays intact thanks to all that practice.
