I sorted out my dress many moons ago. And my shoes. But there was something missing...
I thought, I know, I'll have a look around this weekend and see what I can find in the shops.
And then it dawned on me. What a doofus! I can MAKE a clutch bag to carry my confetti/tissues/camera/keys...
But what to make it out of? *Rifles through red fabric stash dramatically*
Aha! Got it! A preloved burgundy velvet scarf would look particularly wonderful.
So I cut and interfaced and padded and zipped and sewed my little heart out. And this is the end result:
I lined it with red polka dot fabric. I find that a girl can never have enough polka dots in her life!
So I'm even more excited about the wedding now!
And I also have a prom dress that I am considering making a similar clutch bag out of.
I do so love it when you can keep your memories alive with fabric :)
