present for a friend





Here is a present I made for a good friend of ours who recently got married. It's a little picnic set (because what kind of newlyweds don't like to picnic?), made from a pattern in Angry Chicken's Bend the Rules Sewing book. I filled it with some pretty napkins, cutlery, and plates from a little shop in San Francisco called Doe. I hope they have many nice afternoons with this.

What a beautiful, original present! Your friend is so lucky to know you! I love the fabrics and the coordinating plates. Nice work Lynne!

Let me tell you, we received a picnic set from one of Don's old mission families when we got married...although not as cute as your set

I agree with Melissa... a terrific, original present!!! It is so cool compared to the traditional bridal registry gift (though it's been 15 years since I filled ours out!!) My cousin is getting married in April (2nd marriage) and I think you just gave me the perfect idea!!!
