Christmas Brooches from Grandmas Bridesmaids Fabric

I have been MIA this week, getting ready for Christmas. A while back I had told you that my mom was going to give me her left over material that was used for her bridesmaids dresses and I was so excited. Her colors were rust and cream and I knew the taffeta fabric would be beautiful. I wanted to make something special for my sisters and all the granddaughters so I made these brooches and my daughter came up with this amazing poem to go along with them. What makes them more special is that this year would have been my parents 50th anniversary and yesterday two years ago is the anniversary of my fathers death so I know the girls will cherish these.

How perfectly lovely! I wore my grandmother’s wedding dress to my mother’s 80th birthday. It was tea-length on me, because she was a lot shorter. But, I loved that my mother had kept it, in a cedar chest of my grandmother’s that my mother had never opened. What a lovely gift for your sisters and the granddaughters.

The young girl broached the question to her elderly aunt about the brooch she was wearing on her lapel.
