This and the next few posts are inevitably going to focus on the smaller DIY projects we're preparing for the ceremony and reception. Seriously guys, I had about two days after I finished my dress (did I mention that here? If not, the dress is totally done!), and then I was like, "okay, now what? I need something to do." For reals.
But this is the fun part--details!
So on one of many little trips down to AmVets, we picked up some frames to house a "board" (I'm not really sure what to call it) for seating assignments and one for photos. To tie in our colors, we decided that some patchwork would be cool here. I had tons of scraps from making dresses and flowers, so it made sense.
All in all, I spent about an afternoon and a half working on these. From sewing and spray painting...
...to mounting the patchwork, backed with batting and foam core, into the frames.
These pieces will be part of the gift/whatever table and are a little bit practical but mostly just pretty. I really like them.
Okay, so what's next?
