Anything for a friend

Has it really been that long since I've posted?? Well, it's been kind of busy around here. A good friend of mine had a daughter get engaged and married within a span of six weeks. I helped with stuff like hunting for a venue, figuring out a pattern for the bridesmaids' skirts, helping with the food, and, most dear to my heart, making something for the bridesmaids' hair. Here is what I ended up making.

Here they are from a distance.

The bride has lots of sisters that needed accessorizing also. This is Elaina.

This is Haddie Hope.

Eska is older so I made a flower for her. I ended up making one just like it for the bride to wear with her birdcage veil. All my photos of the bride are a big blur, so you'll just have to trust me on this.

I also got the opportunity to make a veil. I wasn't looking to make one. My good friend just told me that I needed to make one and sent over some tulle so that I could get busy. I spent two days avoiding the tulle. I really wasn't interested in cutting something that had to be perfect for photos. Finally I gathered my courage and made it. But you'll have to trust me on that too. All my photos of the bride are blurry.

You can find fabric flowers for sale in my Etsy shop.
