Recently, my Mum got ill and I was in Perth by her side, I also had to cover a load of bills and miss one of my closest friends Clara’s wedding in Tuscany. It was a sad time for me yet after coming back to Dubai, I had limited cash but wanted to make Clara and Cedric something close to my heart to show them how sorry I was that I couldn’t speak at their wedding and that I missed the whole thing. It still hurts me to think about it.
This is a DIY I had been seeing in decor magazines and is just so perfect for a newlywed couple. It takes some patience but I think the final effect is chic and well worth it. This is the finished project on Clara and Cedric’s bed. (That’s their dog Miso modelling):
Cut the letters out of the paper print out templates and pin them to the black felt and cut out:
Once they are cut out pin the letters to the sticky side of the visoflex/bondaweb:
Cut around the the visoflex/bondaweb:
From here iron the paper side of the letter (as shown above), then remove the paper and centre the letter onto the cushion:
I used my glue gun (also fabric glue would work) to secure the edges down. Repeat this process for all the letters and cushions and you have the finished set:
I also added these to the gift:
But more on those later. In the mean time, this post is dedicated to my Dubai #BFF Clara. Congratulations my Eurasian sister from another Mr. The most beautiful bride ever.
