So last weekend my hubby and I got a much needed little get away (from the boys) for a family wedding. We had a fantastic time. I thought I'd share the gift I made for the couple. I was inspired by all the awesome Mr. & Mrs. gifts I've seen on different blogs & Etsy... just do a search for Mr. & Mrs. wedding gifts and you will see so many amazing wedding gifts!
His and Her stockings!
I thought how perfect for them to hang up on their first Christmas!
I went for a very classic red, white, and black color scheme.. wanted them to feel formal.
The lipstick kiss is embroidered by my machine. I was torn whether or not to also go with an embroidered applique like the mustache but I really like how you can see all the ridges with the embroidered kiss.
The mustache pattern I purchased from Etsy for my embroidery machine. I am slowly getting the hang of the embroidery possibilities. The key was realizing that I could transfer the designs... myself! I was under the impression that I had to go back to the shop to get them transfered to my sewing machine. That just wasn't going to happen with 2 little boys tagging along!
I wish I had my Christmas decorations up... so I'd have better pictures.
I am not a pre-Thanksgiving decorator. Now that I've created the pattern I might be churning out some more stockings... I've always wanted matching Christmas stockings for our family!
