I got an awesome sewing machine for Christmas that I haven't been able to step away from since! It's a Bernette 12. It's a beginners sewing machine, which is perfect for me since I have very little experience using them. I've been so busy playing around with it and experimenting with different stitches, patterns, and fabric, that I really haven't been doing much else! I just finished my hand made wedding invitations (which I will be posting after I mail them out so no one seems them before hand), and figured my wedding garter would be next! After doing a lot of research, and frequenting youtube tutorials, this is what I came up with! I wanted to stay away from the typical "something blue" (that is just not me), so I figured I'd make it in my wedding colors, which are black and red. I did two different ones, and I'm not yet sure which one I am going to wear!
