 i was so excited to ask some of my friends to be my bridesmaids! it was a pretty easy choice and i am so happy they are in. to ask them i thought i would make it a bit special by making them a card with a sweet little note on the back. i will show you how i did it in case you need to make something cute for someone.

1. first i drew cartoons of my girls. hehe, this part was fun.
*their heights are not proportional to each other, haha, oops*

2. i took photos of the drawings, got them onto my computer, coloured them in photoshop and added text.
 3. i printed the coloured drawings on cardstock and cut out a rectangle. you can adjust the size to make them as big or as little as you would like.

4. i choose yarn or fabric and used a large needle to 'stitch' around the outside of the card.

5. i wrote a sweet little note on the back to make them blush :)
*no photo, sorry :)

tada! super cute way to tell your friends/bridesmaids they are special.



  1. They look awesome! Great idea for any event.

  2. OMG - they are perfect!! I love your girls...they are super cute!
    Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. aww they are so cute! what a sweet way to be asked :)

  4. Aw! They are beyond cute. You are so talented. Seriously!


  5. This is so sweet and such a good idea. I wish I had started blogging before I got married.

  6. love love love :)
    i scanned in a drawing of my mustachasaurus and colored it in...but my lines aren't quite as nice as yours. got any tips?
