What Inspires Me: Stitching

Straight stitches. Zig zag stitches. It makes no difference. Seeing stitching on paper just thrills me. Mockups for our programs and our wedding favors included stitching.

Now, unless you have a very intimate wedding, lots of free time on your hands, or tons of money to pay someone else to do it, admire from a far. I love stitching because it implies hands touched these. Each item was lovingly crafted.

We opted to skip the stitching. We had 134 guests and were planning on stitching belly bands to 100 programs (skipped) and stitching patchwork covers for 121 wedding favors (postponed and scaled back). While the plan was to sew in a line, nothing fancy, any way you sliced it, the task was daunting.

Was there a detail that you loved from a far?
Or did you nearly go crazy trying to DIY everything?
