Getting crafty for the wedding.

My brother's wedding is next weekend and I've been hard at work finishing up some projects for their big day. As a crafty bridesmaid, my future sister-in-law, Cece, asked me to make their ring bearer pillow, flower girl basket and slideshow. For the slideshow my mom dug up a huge box of pictures from our childhood that I've never seen before (and I'm excited to share with you!). I also got to whip out my sewing machine (and glue gun) for the pillow and basket - I insisted on making them from scratch. For the basket, I pleated fabric around a small basket and then glued ribbons on both sides of the handle. For the pillow, I cut 2 squares and sewed them together. I used a pillow insert and then sewed on the ribbons and pinned them in place. I decided to add the pearls on the pillow at the end for a finishing touch and I think it looks quite lovely!
