A few minutes of embroidery will turn plain woven-grass accessories, such as these slippers and this small basket, into keepsakes for your bridesmaids.
Add luxurious bath products to the basket to soothe your friends after the wedding day.
- Colored raffia
- Woven grass accessories
- Large craft needle
The decoration is made from colored raffia, which is sewn onto the woven straw using a large craft needle.
The petals are single, large stitches; spreading open the crinkled raffia at the middle of each gives it a petal shape.
The flower's center can be made with satin stitches, as on the lid, or a tuft of four knotted strands inserted from below, seen on the slippers.
