Bridal Bags and such

I had a phone call the other night. A client requested that if I could make a bridal bib. I was a bit confused and had to ask why.. Normally I do not but considering the request I had to. It was intended to be a gag gift because the bride is a very very messy eater. lol.. :0) Well I just could not make it cheesy so I did what I could.
I actually like it. And so did she. I hand stitch a beautiful applique that I had and a few rose puffs with beaded accessory. The flowers are actually from a bridal gown. So it does has special meaning behind it. The outer trim is a delicate scroll. It ties in the back. The base fabric is a beautiful white brocade.

With the bib I could not just give that only so I made her a simple clutch that had a tie wrap around. It is done in the same brocade with an applique that I hand sewn on with beaded embellishing.

This is a close up of the applique. It is a simple bag to hold her lipstick, a tissue etc.... Just a few girlie things you need when you need to freshen up.

I love making bridal bags and have several to show. I will get to it eventually. The bridal bibs. I think that they could be something fun for babies that are in weddings or attending. I loved making it.
