25 of 52 - From my other handy crafts!

As some of you may know, I don't just make bears.  I have been known to wield a knitting needle, to joust with a crochet hook and thrust an embroidery needle.

When my husband and I got married 3 years ago, I made a lot of the stationery for the big day myself.  From save the date cards to orders of service I made them all.  But the thing I am most pleased with is the place cards for the tables.  I saw the idea in a wedding album at a fair and couldn't resist making my own special cross stitched place cards.  And I made one for every seated guest (about 60) and I made a couple a night as the RSVPs arrived.  On the big day, they looked like this:

Aren't they pretty?  And the best part is that every time I go to the house of one of the guests, the card is happily on display somewhere.  Not tucked in a drawer or thrown away, cherished and admired even after the event.  And that gives me a big old happy!

These cards have been selected to feature in the UK Handmade Wedding Gift guide this summer with some other gorgeous items to make your wedding perfect.
