Yesterday, a friend and I went to Country Baskets on the outskirts of Manchester, where I bought a big box full of craft materials for making some cute, rustic details for our wedding.

It’s such a brilliant shop, selling a wide range of ready-made decorations for the home and every special occasion you can think of, as well as all you need for a DIY wedding. I was in heaven!

So among many other little bits and bobs, I purchased three plain cardboard characters (G & E) and have spent most of today covering them in pretty vintage style material swatches. I love the results – they look like a patchwork quilt and work really well with all the other rustic details I’ve made so far. Yay!

Stay tuned for more DIY wedding makes!
