Creating Personalized Wedding Gifts
My creative project this weekend was the design and sewing of another personalized wedding pillow. Combining my love of creating an individualized project on the computer/printer and my love of quilting, sewing, and yes, even of giving away...a photo transfered project with a 'morsbag 'became the perfect 'green' gift from our family.
Using the bride and groom's 'Save the Date' postcard and their wedding invitation, as well as their own personal drawings on the envelope, I simply scanned all of the above into my computer, made the necessary color corrections and printed them off onto my own Freezer Paper Photo Transfer fabric.
Using this computer printed and personalized fabric to make a patchwork pillow top, I also designed a 'tied back' similar to the last Wedding Gift Pillow. The next part of the gift was an individually designed morsbag to use as the re-useable and definitely green 'gift bag.'
A 'gift in a gift' for a young man that I have known and cared about his entire life, and his beautiful bride. And best of all, it is extremely lightweight, personally created, and ready for travel to a brand new life in England where 'morsbags' originated and are recognized and perhaps even, coveted!
Love and Best Wishes fill up all of the leftover spaces and overflow from the sides! I wish them a happy new life together and much joy!
