Gifts for a Bridal Shower

Over the weekend I attended a friend's bridal shower at her home. I honestly never looked at her wedding registry's (didn't have money to buy anything, quite honestly!) but looked rather in my sewing room stashes to see what I could pull together for her home.
Drawing inspiration from this hip bag, and knowing that these are her favorite colors, I used some tan corduroy, a blue green stripe cotton, and some cording to make a pillow. Oh yes, and the assortment of buttons to decorate a corner.
She has faced alot of health issues over the last year or so, and while she continues to prepare for her August wedding through her physical suffering, I knew that the devotional book, "The Tender Words of God" would minister to her heart. A cream tatted bookmark was included too.
All packaged up in brown paper tied up with string with some wildflower seeds to share.
The bridal shower was a lovely event with a house full of friends, guests, and gifts. The table was spread with many delights.
A fruit tower a friend made for the bride-to-be.
'Tis the season for budding relationships, engagements, and weddings around here, and I'm loving it!

Great job making a lovely gift on a zero budget! I'm sure the bride will love the pillow. That fruit tower looks yummy, too... :)

Thanks, Laura. It was quite fun, and my friend was quite thrilled that the pillow would match perfectly to colors of their home. That made me all the more happy. :)
