Tonight, I fiddled around with some sheets of heat-activated adhesive, and came up with this:
One side is coat fabric, the other side is dress fabric, with an iron-on adhesive between them. It seems to work quite nicely – doesn’t peel/separate, stays flexible, and keeps the cut edges from fraying.
AND, the Resident Critic (aka Mike) gives it his seal of approval: “Hey, that looks pretty neat!”
I went through my pile of scraps, and I have enough to do 75 bookmarks, and will still have over 1/2 yard of coat fabric left over, and plenty more of the dress fabric. So I am pleased. I think we can consider the wedding favors settled.
Tomorrow: on to writing the ceremony! Thank you very much for all the emails/comments reassuring me about the ceremony; I’m starting to think I can get a handle on it now. At least, I can start the first draft, and after that it’s usually much easier.
