I offered to make broaches for the moms of my sis’ wedding. I thought it would be a nice way to honor them and to give them a memento of the wedding. I decided to make all three exactly the same. It was simpler that way and I liked the consistency among the moms. Each pin was just under 2 inches across. I had never made a pin before, but it was pretty easy to figure out. I embroidered the pins more than the flowers in the bouquet. I figured that these were stand out pieces that should be as showy as I could make them. The moms didn’t know they were getting them. I’m so happy I could help with this nice surprise.
I also put together these flowers for the flower girl’s basket. I didn’t embroider them because frankly I was running out of time. My extremely talented niece made the actual basket. The flower girl’s basket was filled with lavender.
