love love love those blues + greens

You just can’t go wrong with blues and greens!

I loved working with Justine to design ditty bags for each of her girls! She knew she wanted shades of blues, greens and ivory throughout the bags — to compliment the decor and flowers she’d chosen for her Pippin Hill wedding. She and Dave were married this summer — and take a peak at these amazing photos from Sasha + Tim!

Congratulations Justine + Dave! And thanks for incorporating ditty bags into your celebration!! What a beautiful wedding!

one hundred and four…and still going strong!

{see image gallery}

This project was one of my all time favorites… Randy brought me her grandmother’s wedding dress to re-purpose for her daughter’s wedding. The dress was 104 years old and the details threaded throughout were beyond amazing. I hung the dress in my sewing studio for months before I could muster up enough courage to cut it!

We took all the beautiful details, lace, buttons and embroidery and reworked the wedding gown into a chuppah cover — which covered the bride and groom as they said their vows. The chuppah now doubles as a decorative table cloth in the family’s home.

I then made two ditty bags for Randy and her daughter — as a memento of the wedding day: past + present.

How about that for something old?

pops of yellow!

Sheri and I worked together to design ditty bags that incorporated greens, blues and bright yellows for her girls. She wanted them all 100% different but we weaved the same colors throughout.

Here are some fun pictures from Jack Looney of the girls on the Lawn at the University of Virginia!

Congrats Sheri!!!

market ditty bags!!

Announcing the newest addition to the ditty bag line… the market ditty!

I’ve used old belts and given them new lives as the straps on the market ditty bag. And they help to ensure that each bag is unique…no two are alike.  The design is simple, no pockets, no frills. Just enough space for your trip to the market, store, post-office, etc.

To purchase…click the “buy a ditty bag” tag on the right…

greens + yellow!

Heidi + Danny recently tied the knot! Her girls carried custom made ditty bags… Heidi and I worked together to design bags that would coordinate with her the yellows and greens she was weaving through her decor. Her wedding looked like it was full of fun… from the thumbprint guest book, to the skipping stones that doubled as table cards — I loved the details from start to finish. It was fun to see the ditty bags finding their way into the hands of her bridesmaids!

Congratulations Heidi + Danny! Thank you {and LimeFish Studio!} for the beautiful event photos!
