Sewn Invitations Idea

I’ve seen some projects that have really caught my attention because, to me, mixing paper, fabric, stamps and sewn details = simply AWESOME!!

I wasn’t searching for anything in particular when I came across all these pictures. Just as always, I saved them in my “wedding folder” just in case. Now after organizing and seeing them all together, it all made sense.

I wanted something original that didn’t involve a lot of paper (because of the nature of our wedding, and the fact we don’t want to use a lot of “new paper”), and I love sewing because there are so many possibilities when it comes to fabric, so what better than to have both involved in our invitations?

I’m not going to show you the invitations right away. (I have to be mysterious in some way!) I’m just joking . It’s just that there are still a lot of details to work on to produce samples. I’d rather show you all the finished product, but for now, I can give you a clue about our invites by sharing all the cool DIY projects that inspired me. So, here they are:

This is one of my favorites, and no, it’s not just because it’s PURPLE smile018. I love all of Kathleen’s projects (that’s why I’m listing most of them here). You can find the full post that features this cool DIY project here.

I really like the colors on this one, but what I like the most is the leaf detail… I love it! This amazing invitation is from Studio MIKMIK via Twig & Thistle.

This is a DIY program I’ve seen on several blogs. You can find the tutorial here. Like the program? Check out their amazing invitations smile018.

Now, this is pure inspiration to me. You can find her tutorial here. Ohh, so pretty!!

This was one of my first Etsy finds. I love these envelopes!! Another reason to be an Etsy fan . You can find more from this seller here.

This DIY project was the winner in a Style me Pretty contest, and yeah, it’s amazingly cute (it’s another one of Kathleen’s projects)!!

If I’m listing the cute DIY favors, I just HAVE to post the rest of the matching projects, just because they are great! This is her sparklers project.

And the oh-so-cute label tags for coats are here. Lovely!

This one is a program DIY that I just love. If you want to check out the whole thing, go here. They’re so cute!

Easy and cute DIY favors? Of course, check out the full post and instructions here.

Who hasn’t seen the amazing wedding of Amber+Jeff ? Well, if you haven’t, you need to check it out! The theme is lovely. What I love the most are their save the dates (yup! I love pins). Simply awesome.

I love the way they use the pins smile018.

That’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed these projects. Do you have inspiration projects for your invitations as well that you’d like to share?
