Last week I was busy working away on an Etsy order for my bride J (I mentioned her here) who ordered some of my custom vintage spools. She wanted to incorporate the "all you need is love" theme into her wedding so I embroidered the phrase onto the ribbon. They will be incorporated into her super cute table design (yes, she has shown me pictures & has worked up something truly adorable) and each table will be adorned with its own spool. I had originally intended the spools to be used as escort cards but having your favorite phrase embroidered onto the ribbon is another great idea and I think these will be a great addition to J's tables.
What do you think?
Since they're handmade and I do the stitching by hand, they are all a bit different (each of the spools is unique too). I love these slight little differences!
I love the graphics on the vintage spools.
After gluing the ribbon to the spool, the last step was cutting the ends of the ribbon and making a flag shape.
Washi tape!! I don't know how I lived without this stuff for so long.
All packaged up and ready to be sent to J! Packaging up a handmade item and sending it off to someone is one of the best feelings. I'm always a bit nervous, hoping my customer likes what I made as much as I do. As a new designer, I have a special attachment to everything I create and want it to be received in the best possible way. But it is so nice to send the package on its way!
So that is just a peek at something I've been working on. I have a few other projects in the works that hopefully I'll be able to post soon. I am super excited about all of the things I have been designing lately.
Also, tomorrow is Friday which means a bunch of Font Friday goodness! I can't wait to share my picks as well as those of my fellow blogger friends. Be sure to stop by!
