My Wedding dress – What Now!

This is my first blog ever. In fact, I do not really even use social media. I got married 2 months ago and am now trying to work out what to do with my wedding dress and other wedding stuff. I have had several suggested from friends/family, which include leaving in the loft for 40+ years, letting a child play in it or saving it for my daughter. I do not currently have a daughter and think the odds on her wanting to wear my dress and/or it fitting are low and I consider the other 2 options a waste. The dress was not very expensive and got oil on the back during the day so would be too costly to clean to sell on.

I have been crafty all my life and like the idea of making it into beautiful handycrafts which can be used again. So far from my research I have come up with some ideas, photo album cover, quilt, teddy, xmas tree decorations. I am sure there are more and will add as I go. I may not make all of these and intended to use this blog to keep a record of what I get from this.

This is what I have to work with and I will be picking up next weekend to start cutting.
