A Great Dear Lillie Project12:21 PM
Did you happen to see the Burlap vase tutorial on Dear Lillie last week ...
I ended up making a couple.
I was afraid I would make nothing but a mess, but they both turned out pretty well.
I couldn't find our Sharpie so I used a fabric marker that I had on hand.
I also found a font I liked, typed out the names I wanted to write, and then enlarged them on my computer screen. I needed some kind of guide.
I then just sat in front of the computer and tried my best to replicate it!
I am too picky so when I look at the one I made for us I think - Oh, I should have made the J larger or simpler ... I know I'll probably remake it because it will bug me. Oh, why can't I just let it go?
On Saturday my friend Karen gave me this beautiful bunch of Annabelle Hydrangeas from her garden.
They are so delicate and I love seeing them each time I'm in the kitchen!
That's also the reason I became inspired to make a wrap with Josh and Noah's names.
Noah's name wraps around the back of the vase.
I am very happy with how nice his name came out! Success!
This is the wrap I made for friends. They have two adorable little girls, and since I am surrounded by boys I decided I had to use pink embroidery floss to secure it to the vase.
Thank you Jennifer for another adorable idea.
