Bridal shower gift reveal!

I had forgotten how much fun it can be to get excited about wedding gifts. I mean, I have been married for a DECADE now, so you know... you forget. But I had the chance to attend a bridal shower for a family friend and his fiancee. And of course, I had to make them something. My inspiration was from the blog Lines Across My Face - isn't this gorgeous?!

I love the modern stitching and negative space. After looking at the couple's registry, I decided it would be perfect. I used a steely gray suede-like fabric and white thread. First, I did some decorative stitches around the pillowcase end. Very simple with my machine.

I decided to use white embroidery thread so the pillow could be used in any room, with any color scheme.

I'm so happy with how it turned out, nevermind the fact that I really underestimated the amount of time it would take me to finish it.  (I was, ahem, finishing it IN THE PARKING LOT at the shower. True story.  haha)

Congrats you two crazy kids! ;-)

    1. It is so much fun to see something that someone else creates and be so pumped, that you go try it yourself. So thanks again!
