The invitation design once again....

So I bought a sewing machine and have been obsessing over wedding diy projects where I could use my new found hobby. I had liked my invitations I had previously done but I didn't love them although I thought I did. That's when I came across a picture of invitations with a sewn border on Better Homes and Gardens website.

This was the first attempt.

It was too busy and the stitch was too modern.

And so I played with some of the decorative stitches and this was the winner.

I loved them. And to add a little color the information card will have same stitch but in yellow.

The leaves will be sewn so that they are upward but I'm not looking at invitations anymore. This is it!!! They are even more rustic chic than before.
