Beach Wedding Buffet; beach wedding linens; beach decor
Okay, this will be it for the wedding items today. But, I thought what a great table or buffet runner this would make for an outdoor wedding by the water! It's made of white burlap. I hand-cut the waves applique and then finished it off with an aqua woven ribbon. See details here
Beach wedding; gift bags
Here's an idea for gifts to the wedding attendants. These are versatile little bags made of tan burlap. They have reinforced side seams and a boxed bottom with a jute handle. I've attached a sand dollar but I've also made them with a driftwood beach button. Too cute, if I must say so myself!
Beach wedding; ring bearer pillow
Here's another; a bit dressier than the burlap. This is made of a white on white shell patterned fabric. Down the center I've attached pleated satin, satin bow and sand dollar. It's then finished off with a string of braided pearls. See more details here
Here's another pillow, a bit dressier than the burlap.

I decided to make some beach wedding pillows for the summer. This one is white burlap with a blue ribbon woven through. I've added a satin bow and a beautiful sand dollar. Go here for more details

This was a custom order. The person I made these pillow covers for needed the fabric to be washable and did not want the appliques ironed on due to the chemical. Highly allergic was the reason for the special request. These are classically nautical with boxed corners, blue and white ticking embellished with a nautical applique. I'm really pleased how they turned out and enjoyed making them.

This is still one of my favorite fabric combinations. These beach cottage pillow covers are created in Robert Allen Indoor/Outdoor Beachfront Marine and Seashell Bongo Marine fabric. The pillow back is the same fabric with a covered zipper closure. This pillow cover fits an 18" square pillow form. Fabric is 100% Poly. Robert Allen care information: Wipe with damp cloth. Fade resistant up to 500 hours of direct sun exposure. Looks great with other coordinating pillows.

Nautical Pillow with Grommets and Dock Line

This is by far my favorite nautical pillow to date! However -- I really need to find a supplier for the grommeted webbing. It's way too expensive to buy retail. I'll never make a dime on this pillow unfortunately. But, it was fun to make so that counts for something :-) A true nautical classic in navy. Dock line is laced through grommets to create this very unique center. The pillow back is solid blue with a covered zipper. The pillow is 18" square.
