embroidery isn't just for grandmas


i am a very lucky girl. lucky because my customers have been coming up with the most creative custom requests lately and i can't take any of the credit for that! i just finished the embroidery on this pair of converse that a customer is giving to her fiancee as a surprise to wear at their wedding...cool, right?! we put our heads together to come up with the simple little design and now i just have to finish the other shoe before shipping them off.

and once again, i think i want to borrow the idea for my own wedding. or maybe a pair of embroidered converse with flowers or music lyrics and such for everyday wear...for myself of course!

so cool! Definitely an idea to steal...out of pure awe for whoever thought of it :)

I did something similar on the shoes I wore on my wedding day - 8years ago yesterday. (I was only twenty when I got married, so don't go thinking I'm old or anything. : ) They were little satin,fabric ballet shoes. My daughter loves to play with them.

happy anniversary maureen! it sounds like you had a very cool diy wedding, i can only imagine with all your creativity!
and no you are not old! most of my friends got married around 20 so i feel out of the loop sometimes on this end of things too :)

That is such a great idea! And I'm jealous that you get to be such a special part of their ceremony. You have the best job!
