Fabric Keepsake Box

Well, it's been a little while since I last posted because I have been busy crafting. My good friend and neighbour, Inga, threw me a curved ball last week by asking me to make "something special" for her son and his financee who are getting married in Baden-Baden, Germany, on 9th May.

Trouble is she didn't know what she wanted, except that it should be something they could keep and that they were leaving to go to Baden-Baden this Saturday!!!!!

Having had a sleepless night I thought a fabric keepsake box would be just the thing and I would be able to finish it in the time frame. Also I had in my stash some beautiful embroidered silk material that would be perfect.

When I had finished the box I had some fabric left so I also made them a matching wedding card.

I gave them both to Inga when we went to lunch on Wednesday and she loved them - so I was able to breathe a huge sigh of relief.

Thanks for looking.

  1. That's a beautiful box and I'm sure they will treasure it - don't you just love it when someone asks for something really special at short notice!!!!
