it’s what inside that counts…

Everything in Cheryl & Peter’s wedding had meaning behind it. Including the ditty bags I made and designed with her for her bridesmaids. Cheryl had each girl send in a piece of fabric that was meaningful. We had dresses, t-shirts, bits of lace, a scarf…one of her friends even mailed in the shirt she finished a marathon wearing.

Each bag was lined with the meaningful fabrics…and on the outside?  Cheryl gave me the go-ahead to go bright! We used vintage fabrics mixed with new and repurposed materials… ivories, champagnes, guava, pinks and peaches.

Each bridesmaid picked out their own dresses—all different… in both long and short lengths and various shades of peach, guava and pink. Talk about colorful!
