How to Make an Embroidered Wall Hanging Wedding Present

Wedding season is upon us and I've been kicking it into gift making high gear lately.  I've been whipping up embroidered wedding gifts like the Embroidered Pillow I made for my friend's wedding this past spring and the Embroidered Tea Towel I made last summer.  This wedding gift is for two of my closest friends who sadly live too far away from me.  I couldn't make it to their beautiful wedding in Colorado, but I still wanted them to know how much I love them so I created this one of a kind wall hanging to commemorate their special day.  Check out my instructions below and make your own wall hanging as a gift for someone else or to decorate your own home.

Personalized Tea Towel

Alright friends, we are officially waist deep into wedding season.  Have you already spent all your extra cash on gelato makers and Keurigs?  Does it sadden you that the happy couple will be able to make 20 different kinds of hot beverages but will inevitably forget who gave them that ability?  Why not skip the impersonal gifts this wedding season and show your friends just how much you really care for them.  I made this personalized tea towel for my friends Christine and Sam who are tying the knot in a couple of weeks.  Sam is at least 2 feet taller than Christine and they have have an adorable golden retriever named Hank.  While the embroidery of the couple is stylized, I tried to make it as personal as possible by reflecting their family and including the first initial of their last name.  Check out my tutorial if you want to create something similar for your family or friends.

Monogrammed Dinner Napkins

Ok people.  It's officially wedding season and that means you have a lot of gifts to start buying.  You have a couple of options.  Look at the couple's registry and buy them some lame pasta strainer that they will never remember that you bought them and will probably end up in a garage sale in five years.  Or, you could go online and try to find a personalized, one of a kind present that will end up costing you so much that you won't be able to afford to attend the wedding.  Or, you can do it the Life is Made way and make them a personalized, one of a kind present that they will cherish forever.   

I'm going to begin the wedding season with a great tutorial on making monogrammed dinner napkins, but over the next month I will be putting up a couple more tutorials for making unique wedding presents, so please stay tuned!
