I thought this a great idea, but decided to put my own little touch on it, by placing my monetary gift into a little wallet.
I have some lovely wedding fabric, which was used with charcoal grey polka dot fabric
The back of the wallet
The inside of the wallet, space to put my money as well as a note to the bride and groom.
Now to come clean ... The wedding fabric was supposed to be on the inside of the wallet, the polka dots on the outside, so that it could be used at any time .... oops ... however once I realised my mistake, the wallet was already finished, and I didn't mind the finished results... I have now made a note on my pattern to ensure that I know which piece of fabric I put down first to ensure that it does not happen again.
While I had the sewing machine out, I made my sister Sue (mother of the bride) a loyalty card holder as requested. She loved the batik fabric I used for the headband, so I used some more for her holder.
I love the inside fabric
Waiting to be filled.
This is a fabulous pattern. I wonder how many more requests I get from family at the wedding next week.
