The bride's bag...silk yarn with tiny beads, lace pattern, lining is hand gathered and hand stitched into place. Just big enough to hold the bride's essentials - tissue, mints, powder, lipstick.
The very blingy salwar kameez I picked for the wedding.

Bride's bag.. (this isn't my finished project) .... mine is done but needs some finishing touches before I take some pictures. The bag I have made for our niece's wedding is made from Tilly Tomas beaded silk, lace weight in robin's egg blue. It's very pretty and I'm pleased with the results. I made modifications so the bag won't look exactly like the pattern picture below. And the wedding. What to wear? We spent the afternoon on Gerrard St. in Toronto and I bought a new salwar kameez for the wedding. The style is very similar to this one but the colours not. Mine is sand coloured silk with turquoise trim, pants (salwar) and turquoise beads and bling...just a bit of bling..well maybe more than I would normally choose but I felt adventuresome. When I find my camera charger I will post my own photos.
