Weddings are so different these days.

What is more personal than a beautifully handcrafted gift? You can create something simple like adding to a wedding dress by stitching a little blue bow inside the lining, or something more complex like using a small swatch from the wedding dress or groom’s outfit to create amazing artwork of the wedding venue.

Hand-stitched cards

I love the idea of hand-stitched cards to send to the happy couple as an RSVP, a celebration card on the day of or a thank you card after the event.

Stitched samplers

Another idea is to turn your stitchings into samplers that you could frame and gift. One of the reasons I love samplers as a gift is the history behind the art form.

Samplers are often seen as nostalgic pieces because they have historically been a method of recording information. Keep this in mind as you create some fabulous personal pieces for weddings.

Why not stitch their names, dates of where they met, their interests and bits of their personal journey together? This stitched record will surely become an heirloom for a new family.

The list of things to make for weddings can seem endless, but it’s easier to narrow down when you ask yourself if you have enough time to make your idea. You don’t want to ruin your project by rushing it or putting undue pressure on yourself, so be thoughtful about your choice. It’s meant to be fun for you, too!
