Wedding Keepsake Bears

Wedding Keepsake Bears

Have you ever wondered what to do with your lovely wedding dress after the wedding? I did. I loved mine and was very sad that it was up in the loft, not being seen. Wedding dresses are probably the most expensive dress we women will ever own and It's difficult knowing you will probably never wear it again after the wedding. I thought about turning my own dress into a Keepsake Wedding Bear, and Im so glad I did.

The first cut was hard, but after that it was fine. My dress had lots of sparkles and beads and wanted to incorporate them into my bear, so I had to use sections from all over the dress.

Hearts galore

I just thought I would post a few pictures of the hanging wedding hearts I have made for a friends wedding in June. I am really pleased with how they turned out, even though they took me longer than I had anticipated, all the hard work paid off in the end.

Here they are stacked in their box.
Hanging Hearts, Wedding Gift, sewingI made 65 hearts, although you can't see this in the picture.

The wedding theme is grey and cream so I chose the colours to complement this. The first material I chose was made by Clarke & Clarke, grey and white spotty with a white ribbon.
