A embroidery cushion for a wedding

My niece es getting married soon and I thought a good idea to give her a cushion to carry partnerships embroidered with your name and your future husband.
So I spent some time on Sunday afternoon to embroider with a good cup of coffee, it was gradually taking shape.

The base fabric I used is a satin, a remnant of a wedding dress that I made about four years ago. Above it, a piece of organza which is also a remnant of a communion dress that I made three springs ago, the frill is made of organza with the same stash.

The decorations of flowers are also accessories that I did long time ago, so that every part of this cushion has a story. The bow of flowers is blue because here, in Spain, is a tradition that the bride has to wear something new, something used and something blue to give luck. Here a few photos of the cushion finished.

I hope that my niece received this gift with all the affection that I have to do it.
Meanwhile, I´m already thinking about the dress I´m going to do to attend the wedding...
Next post.
