Embroidered Wedding Gifts

I attended a friend’s wedding back in June – it was a lovely informal party for both the bride and groom, and their daughter’s first birthday (you may have seen Seren’s doll).

While I was in the making zone, I thought it would be nice to give a unique hand-made gift. A while ago I stumbled across a cute free pattern via Pinterest and, until now, have never had an excuse to try it out.

It’s a simple embroidery pattern with the bride and groom’s initials carved into a tree trunk. However, I decided to add to this a little and sew full names and add the wedding date.

SONY DSCI reckon my hand sewing could do with a bit of neatening up but I still think it’s cute. If you fancy trying the pattern, the site it comes from is: The Modern Lady blog.

This second gift, although wedding-related was actually a wedding anniversary gift…for my other half. Two years in June (wow how that has flown!) and, even though we don’t really give gifts, I thought it would be nice to make something and, appropriately cotton is what you are supposed to give for your second anniversary.

During our ceremony we had a reading from The Velveteen Rabbit, so I decided to remember this in the form of a embroidered picture with the verse that was read.

(Note to self: more work needed on hand-sewn letters!)

SONY DSC SONY DSCI guess this was more of a pressy for us both as now it will be framed (still yet to do!) and displayed on the walls of our house, amongst other random pictures and artwork meaningful to us.
