The Lovely Mrs. Ellis

Last month I had the privilege of attending my friend Joy’s bridal shower. Her mom asked me to make an apron especially for Joy and knowing that Joy loves anchors and that I had just gotten this fun Michael Miller Ahoy Matey Rigging fabric we decided on a nautical themed apron for her. Joy is quite tall so I made her apron longer than normal and knowing she likes an empire waist I kept the top pretty short.

Doesn’t it just fit her perfectly?! I was pretty in love with how cute and nautical this one turned out. Since her sweet apron was made by me but from her mom I decided to make her a couple of sweet little gifts with her new last name in mind. I custom made this little cross stitch with an anchor and her wedding date and this lovely pillow monogrammed for John and Joy Ellis.I just love how they turned out!

Just to brag on our artistic abilities when it comes to making wedding dresses out of toilet paper, our team won! That beautiful babe in the photo with the lovely bride is our friend Angi, our TP muse!

Joy and John were married on the 18th and it was a beautiful wedding. She was such a gorgeous bride and he was a handsome, sweet groom just as he always is! Congratulations Ellis’! Welcome to the club!

**A little tip when monogramming; according to what I’ve read things like linens and towels should be monogrammed with the lady’s initial first while things like bar ware should be monogrammed with the man’s initial first. So my towels are monogrammed NCA and if we had awesome engraved whiskey tumblers they would be engraved ACN. Fun little fact I thought I’d share.
