A Little Something

In addition to the bowls featured this past week, my wedding dress customer was also hoping I'd have enough of her fabric and lace to make a little something for a very special bride-to-be. She wanted to give her this as the "something old" for her trousseau, and we wracked our brains to come up with just the thing.
I had just enough of the antique lace left to crochet this little heart. I sewed a pinback on the reverse, and pinned it to a length of the leftover material. The bride can either pin the heart by itself to her garter or bouquet, or leave it on the length of fabric and tie that around her bouquet.
Though it's only about 2" by 2", this little lace heart is bursting with history and love. I am so lucky to have my small part in the big ideas my customers dream up!

what a clever idea!!! what I had old for my wedding was an old vintage handkerchief my mom bought me it is irish linen, real soft and it has an "L" in it for Lauren, and lilies on there with light blue trim, it was perfect! but that heart is just stunning, the bride will love it!
