    As some of you know my son is getting narried May 1st and I have been asked to help make some items for the wedding. I made the ring bearer pillow, and they wanted a heart shaped pillow :? Not as easy as it sounded :roll: I am not happy with the final shape, but they love it and that is all that matters :thumbup:

    Then we found a pattern for 3-D butterflies for the embroidery machine so with a LOT of help from Cute Buns here is the first one. We will add them to some of the dresses we are making and add them to the cake table and well any where else the bride wants :wink: LOL

    Sorry the butterflies are going on the dresses we are making, for the cake table and anywhere else Nicole decides :thumbup: They were also suppose to go on the bouquets, but her sister bought some other butterflies for those. Have you checked out Cute Buns pda, she was helping me with these and has them in awesome colors :mrgreen: :thumbup:

    Great job on the ring pillow. It's a keeper and will be even more special because mom made it. The butterfly is cute too. If you have a stencil burner they work great instead of having to trim and you can burn out the inside really quickly. Much easier than trying to trim neatly.

    I agree a heart shape is NOT simple to keep the curves and points perfect. You did a lovely job on this. I am guessing the colors of the wedding are orange and yellow?? How nice that they are including you in the process of planning and design. I bet you will have a marvelous time as I am sure they will too.
