Sisterpants' Wedding




As you can see, my sister was a happy and beautiful bride.  We've had a fun and full weekend.  One of her girlfriends took pictures of the event, and they did bridal portraits on Friday.  Luckily I was there to get a few of my own shots! 

Despite the fact that we've already had snow in Colorado recently, it was a bright and sunny day for the wedding, and everything went well, include the ring burier. 

Here she is with the little bag I made for her.  The handkerchief in her left hand was her Something Old.  It was one of my grandmother's, and was a souvenir from a trip she took to Niagara Falls as a young bride.
So here's the little bag.  I made my own pattern because I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.  This is my first ever zipper!  I used some tips from Erin's zipper tutorial.  I think it all came out pretty well.  (That's my own wedding dress in the background below.)   
After all the excitement of the summer and past few weeks, it is time to get the house back in order and ready for the holidays.  And also, I am apparently going to enjoy the flu next :(

Uh-oh! I hope your bout with the flu VERY short! Your bag turned out great -- how cool to carry that and the handkerchief from your grandmother. Your sister is a beautiful bride -- you can certainly tell that the two of you are sisters!
