because making a phone call was too easy (eleven)

When it was time to ask 5 of the nicest girls ever to be my bridesmaids, I decided to get a little creative. I’d been wanting to try sewing on paper, with the new machine I got for my birthday, so I selected the oldest pictures I could find with each girl, and sewed them to a card.

and wrapped them up, so that this is what they found when they opened the envelope

It took a little time to organize, so that people were starting to wonder if they would be included (especially a certain only sister of mine). But I think it was all worth it when the mail finally arrived. (I’ve saved the voicemails, they make me smile!)
