Congratulations Cousin! PART #1....

My cousin, Lisa, got married a little over a week ago and I was so exited to make her and Aaron something special for their new home! Lisa's kitchen was themed in green and white and so with some special touches, I made her a gift to match:

Here's what it looked like opened.....Do you see a theme emerging?
Here is what is enclosed:

4 home-made linen/poly napkins for a special night's dinner with friends.


A homemade potholder that matches her plates and kitchen theme. (I made the flower/leaf stencil before her bridal shower ...off her exact floral pattern)... I knew I'd need that stencil to make special details later for her wedding gifts! Potholder design from this book...


Back view of the potholder.


And a homemade oven mitt with stenciled design. (I used Pebeo fabric paint to stencil the design on and then heat-set it on. The inside of the mitt is the green floral cotton fabric). Oven mitt pattern from this book....

And the rest of the wedding basket contained 2 dish cloths and one delicious smelling soy candle to accent her kitchen decor!


Steven and I are so excited for you and Aaron! We hope you have a great honeymoon, and can't wait to see pictures when you get back! Congratulations!!!!


Love,

Cousin Joy (& Steven)
