Wedding Bowls

These are the two bowls made from the wedding items I showed you on Monday. I used the long silk slip as the base, and topped them off with a round of lace. Between you and me, I was terrified to cut these things up- they were so old and delicate that I truly feared that the result could be disastrous. As you can imagine, I am very pleased that they turned out so well. I added the knot of silk and lace at the side to really showcase the fabrics within. Now to see what I can make from the leftovers for the extra special item...

I've been waiting since Monday to see what beauties you'd come up with.
Lucky, lucky lady to get these :)
