I made some friends of ours a set of fun pillow cases for a shower gift.  It took about 3 seconds to do.  For part of their wedding gift I am going to make her a fancy apron and a scrapbooked recipe card for his favorite cake recipe.... (we already gave them most of their gift).  I love cloth napkins :)  I make mine 2 layers thick (either fat quarters for adults or 12" squares of flannel for kids/famillies).  What about an embroidered table cloth?

I like the Christmas stockings idea!


If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

I've made a few organic cotton dishcloths and I have some beeswax and wicks so I'm hoping to find some nice cheap teacups at the second hand store and make some candles. Ive got maple syrup we tapped from the trees at my family cottage and I'm going to get some Bobs mill pancake mix. I'm looking for sweaters to make the stockings but haven't had much luck. I'm going to throw in tea bags to "fill" the basket. Also hoping to find a nice matted picture frame at the second hand store and frame their invitation.Also thinking of throwing in a gc for the music store my dh works at since both bride and groom are musicians and that means (like us) they are BROKE winky.gif
