Long time!! Im tired of writing all my excuses for not updating here. And I cannot give any promises. Today I really want to tell about this ring basket pillow I made for my bro;s betrothal . something special for me. I couldn't take any pics of it as all the finishing touches were made the day before the betrothal.
Dropped tht plan and the next one, I took a small cane oval shaped basket, stuffed inside and covered with a white handwork net (leftover fabric of a dress) My idea was to put beads and woodrose flowers around. But after the stuffing it looked a little big for the ring basket and hiding the sides was also a problem..Another failure!. Then I took a candle holder glass and crocheted a jacket with gold thread with an nice edging, but it looked too small for the purpose.
Nima and Tintu and some whatsapp buddies. They were okay with it and Nima suggested to put pearls along with flowers. And I used the pearls around it to create a round shape to it. Used hot glue with glue gun to stick the buds and flowers to it.
I put the satin lace after reaching my home and couldn't take a picture of the whole thing. The first picture is by the official photographer.
Although the whole basket sounds simple, to get to the final thing I had to struggle a lot and I was so so totally happy with it. Everyone liked it too. I made a wedding ring pillow also, I couldn't take the pics of it . yet to get the pics.
The wedding functions went nice and good. And we are back here at our home and settled. hope to update this space often.
