IMG_5119My search for a very special wedding shower gift led me to this terrific website called sew4home.  If you enjoy sewing, you’ll delight in all in the inspiring projects and informative tutorials there.  This idea for decorator sheets was found under the tab “bed linens”.  The complete instructions accompanied a supplies list and, since I loved their chosen fabric, I went straight to the recommended website and ordered the Kaufman seersucker fabric and jumbo ric-rac.  Though I loved the featured blue, I chose black-and-white for our bride-to-be, and I couldn’t be happier with the results!

Since I always love a good theme (and who doesn’t??), I purchased a set of simple white towels and embellished the hems with the leftover fabric*:

To complete the theme, I purchased a bottle of Lavendar Vanilla Pillow Mist from Bath & Body Works…part of their “Sleep” collection.  Wishing sweet dreams and a lifetime of happiness to the bride and groom.

      You’re too sweet, Rits! She was sincerely appreciative…even called me after the shower to express her gratitude. I’m glad it was a hit!
