This simple project is great to add a little memento onto your wedding dress! This DIY wedding date label is a great way to add something new and something blue – just use a blue pen to mark your wedding date. This label can be then sewn onto on your gown, behind its back or at the bottom of the skirt for a fun photo opp. Anniemade will explain how to tackle this easy DIY:
From Annie of Anniemade: Here’s a subtle but very special way to commemorate your wedding day within the bodice of your dress. Whether you sew it or pin it in temporarily, or heat transfer it, this mini calendar patch will be a lovely addition to the heirlooms you carry with you on your wedding day and a beautiful piece to pass on to future generations.
Here’s what you’ll need for this simple DIY:
Printable Cotton Fabric Paper for Inkjet Printers (we used Avery Brand)
Calendar download (we used this one and edited the font in Word)
Iron and stitch witchery or needle and thread
Print your wedding date onto a piece of Printable Cotton Fabric Paper. The Avery brand we used is wonderful because it can be sewn and it also has a heat seal backing that only takes 5 seconds for an iron to smoothly apply.
Use a sharp pair of scissors to cut your mini calendar out into your rectangular patch.With the red fabric marker, carefully circle (or draw a heart) around your wedding day. Using the same printable cotton, you can also print + sew your new monogram in blue or a sentence from your vows!
Lastly, secure the patch to your dress by your preferred means. Pinning would allow you to keep the patch even if you sold your dress later. To iron-on, please follow the instructions included in the Printable Cotton Fabric Paper packaging.
