Handcrafted Wedding Ideas & Inspiration

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Bridal Season starts next month – seriously, it’s almost June already!

Now’s a good time to start making a pretty keepsake for the bride and groom, or accessories for the big day. Here are some sites that provide free patterns and inspiration for wedding-themed projects you can make.

French Knots features an assortment of Free Wedding Embroidery Patterns for surface embroidery. Use them on cards, to embroider a ring bearer’s pillow or sampler, and more using DMC Embroidery Threads to match the bride and groom’s wedding colors.

Make a Crochet Corsage or Boutonniere using DMC Pearl Cotton #8 by following the easy instructions given on the Craft Passion site. This versatile pattern can also be used to create crochet blossoms for use on hair clips, to decorate cards and packages, or to adorn the bride’s headpiece.

Need a splash of color?  Try crocheting the flowers using DMC Pearl Cotton Color Variations threads!

The Circle of Crafters site features this embroidered and beaded Wedding Card, perfect for the lucky couple’s big day!

On the Make and Take site you’ll find a pattern for a simple, yet pretty Wedding Card, featuring 2 embroidered rings.

And check out Wists for this pretty Collection of Surface Embroidery Designs from the 1950’s featuring assorted bouquets, bells and ribbons you can download.

Stitch the designs on linens, towels, napkins and tablecloths using basic surface embroidery stitches and you’ll have a unique, handcrafted gift for the bride and groom in very little time.

In my next blog I’ll provide the pattern and instructions for making this pretty (and easy) felt Wedding Cake Pin Cushion with 3 delectable embroidered layers!
