As promised, the ring bearer's bag:
This veers very dangerously into the land of sticky sweet sentiment but indulge me--this is my firstborn's wedding...
For this bag, I experimented a bit with quilting the dress fabric. I tried superfine silk thread and a 60 needle, and was pretty pleased with the way the quilting looked on the silk.
The edging along the top has been waiting and waiting for the right project. And this certainly was the right project--the edging was crocheted by my grandmother. She was a Caroline too. I like that a little part of my grandma will be at the wedding. Kind of a hug across the generations.
The beaded flower on the bag was made from sheer floral ribbon I've been saving. Photo isn't too good, but you get the idea.
And the little rosettes at the end of the drawstrings were made from some of the hair ribbons Caroline wore as a kid.
That's right--I never throw ANYTHING away. Watch for me on Hoarders one of these weeks.
Heading out to St. Lucia early, early Wednesday. Whoo hoo! Back in a week.
