I think Sew…

I consider myself to be an entry level crafty person.  I can be creative and I definitely dream big (as you can see from my last post) when it comes to wedding crafts and projects.  So I have been tirelessly searching the blog world, craft stores and photo sites for inspiration and ideas. 

Enter Amy Butler.  Amy Butler is a designer extraordinaire with everything from fabric, to patterns to home decor!  She is like a chameleone of creativity.  If you have not seen here website and you enjoy sewing I highly recommend it.  I have her book In Stitches  and find all of the projects doable for a person with basic sewing/sewing machine skills. 

I am considering a few things from her repertoire for bridesmaids gifts.  Check these out!

Plus I LOVE aprons!  They are so retro and sweet.  Here is one from Amy Butler’s line:

Sweet Little Apron.

All the links below came from

So there you are.  I love handmade aprons and totes and clutches, Oh My!  What little handmade beauties are you considering for the lovely ladies in your wedding?

May I Have this Dance?

Oh that most important of decisions, your first dance song! Months away though it may be, selecting the appropriate tune has me up at night. See my fiance and I have quite varied taste in music and selecting the song sets such a tone for the evening. If I choose too sappy my mother may never recover, too cheesy and guests will be put off the hors d’oeuvres! So I’ve compiled a list of Vintage Classic’s and Indie Favorites to help you all brainstorm at home. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, but for me, just say no to Butterfly Kisses.

Vintage Classic Love Songs

A Kiss to Build a Dream On – Louis Armstrong

I Can’t Give You Anything But Love – Ella Fitzgerald

S’Wonderful – Diana Krall

Wink & A Smile – Harry Conick Jr.

Side by Side – Puppini Sisters (Check these gals out, they’re amazing!)

 The Way You Look Tonight – Tony Bennet

Indie Favorites

Sarah Seven

I love chic, gorgeous short dresses, and these from Sarah Seven have me smitten. The flowy fabrics and belted styles are so soft, beautiful and romantic – everything a girl wants to be! The vintage flair and light colors make them great for bridal showers or post-wedding brunches, but you don’t need to be planning a wedding to love these frilly frocks.
