Nautical Wedding

I was recently contacted by a bride-to-be looking to add nautical details to her Newport, RI wedding in July. After discussing several options, she decided on a ring pillow made from upcycled sailcloth.

I had a sail with a 'reefing' grommet that was perfect to secure the rope to hold the wedding rings. I customized it with the date embroidered on the royal blue stripe that matches her bridesmaid dresses. It was a fun project I loved creating something truly unique and special for her wedding day.

WIP - Recycled Sail Luggage Tag

Recently, I received a special request to customize a luggage tag with a number two for a second anniversary gift. Cotton is the traditional gift for a second anniversary and they are celebrating with a trip to the Bahamas. One hitch, my regular luggage tags have only a stitch of cotton - meaning the only cotton in them is the stitching.

In response, I created a custom made luggage tag made of recycled sailcloth with a stripe of navy organic cotton canvas decorated with a machine stitched number 2. Happy anniversary!

I think I'm going to be making a lot more of these ...
