congratulations sierra + tom

my friends sierra and tom got hitched last month.
for their wedding present i made them some cloth napkins and beer steins based on the theme of their wedding invitation.
the cloth napkins started out as a quilt project, but it quickly became clear that i wasn't going to get a quilt done in time for the wedding (sorry sierra & tom!) so it morphed into napkins and beer steins. more practical, anyway. the napkins i did in shades of yellow, brown and white using this method of sewing curved lines in a quilt.
i used a pretty stitch to finish the edges, and each napkin has a hand embroidered S <3 T in the corner.
the beer steins were pretty fun to make as well. i had made etched wine glasses for my dad's wedding when i was in high school, so i tried that technique again.
using some of the left over black vinyl from the wall decal project, i cut out the image from their wedding invitation, centered it on the stein, and painted etching cream on the glass. it's a quick and easy process, one that i'm definitely going to do again - they came out so lovely!
congratulations, sierra and tom - sending you blessings for a lifetime of joy, good times, beer and happy messes.

This gift was absolutely perfect- both thoughtful and incredibly useful! I will probably replicate this gift for other friends who are getting married because it made us feel so loved. Thank you, Kasha for this beautiful and meaningful present!!
