Q&A: Fabric Wedding Pins for the Wedding Party

Reader Question: I just had a quick question...do you have the website that had the tutorial for making the fabric flower pins? I can't seem to find it.

Sure! I found the tutorial on Maize in Montana. And for those of you who have no idea what the reader's asking about, these are the fabric pins I made for the folks in our wedding party--both men and women.

They were a last ditch attempt to give our wedding party some sense of unity. We asked people to attempt to wear something that coordinated with the colors in the flower.

It also served as a little thank you (they did, after all, have to memorize an entire dance). They were completely free because I used fabric that we already had at the house. It's from a dress that I bought in India but really never wore (it's the same fabric I used to make Matt's tie, my dress sash, and Hoss's bandana).

Honestly, they were a totally unnecessary detail that was just a fun diversion from my other work!

Hello! I've been reading your blog quite avidly and have recently decided to follow it- it's such a help for planning my own wedding!

I love how you made a fabric flower pin, I'm thinking of making the same for my own attendants, although possibly with a vintage brooch in the center for the females. Good/Bad idea? Just figured I'd share it in case anyone else fancied it.

Thanks for the help!

Hello again!
One of my goals for this year is to learn how to sew, and my mom is offering to get me a new sewing machine.
Buuuut... how do I pick one? You seem rather craft savvy, is there any way you can help me out? I have no clue what half of the words mean on the sewing machine descriptions, but I have to start somewhere!
