Good Luck.

For the Bride tomorrow  (my nearly DIL ) a Lucky Horseshoe in the Wedding theme colours. All stiched and embroidered by hand. I saw this idea in Crafts Beautiful magazine by Carolyn Letten and have adapted the design .

Made in felt with pearls and beading.  Showing the back .


A box to keep it in afterwards. The picture makes the box look flat but that is an origami paper bow on top with another of the paper roses on top in pale lavender this time. 


A little story to go with the gift. My Mum & Dad can't be present on the day but the pearls on the horseshoe are from a Pearl Bracelet that belonged to my Mum which  I dismantled and used.
