I've finally finished a long overdue promise...a wedding album for the dearest and most adorable couple. I'm very biased of course, having seen the beautiful bride grow from a little girl...but also knowing the trials these 2 have been through made me feel very blessed and priviledged indeed, to get to make them something special.
I did spend most of the time wanting to squidge those gorgeous wee cheeks of theirs ...but that just heightens even more, how old I feel now that the little girl is big enough to get married!
So.....the makings of a wedding album....
Of course begins with two dear hearts very much in loooove....
The spine of the book is stitched in place, and all the fabric pieces of the background are sewn together. More appliqued leafy swirly bits have been added ... and of course the glowing bride and groom!
I added a little bit of blue watercolour to the background so you could see the dress better...there's a little bit of leakage but that's ok!
More water colour added and hand embroidered details too (LOVING the kilt!)......now we're ready to attach this whole piece to thick board to make the front and back cover..and then bind in the pages.
I promise to share the binding and cardboard sticking some other time ..it's the messy and not very pretty stage (and where I didn't have enough hands to carry out AND take photos!)
I look forward to handing this over, knowing that its going to be filled with some real treasured moments.
And now it only seems fitting to end with a proper "awwww" inducing moment....
how is this for love...the groom completely designed, sewed and made the bride's dress! swoon :)xx
