|Bow blouse on a little copper hanger and self-made little boutique like carry bag|
Promised you an inspiration regarding a DIY Gift Voucher for a self-made garment in this year's first post.
A little late, but here it comes. I have used this idea twice this year already and it seems, that both recipients were quite happy with it!
So the idea is very simple. I sew tiny, little garments with hand (see how tiny they are in relation to the pug).
The voucher on the left was for a female friend. She really liked my big bow wanderlust blouse and thus I decided to make one for her, too.
Good thing with this voucher is, that you already have a little handmade item to really hand over on the recipient's birthday AND that the recipient is able to choose the fabric on her/his own. I mean, wouldn't it be a pity, if you as a seamstress put great efforts into the accomplishment of a self-made garment, just to find out in the end, that the recipient isn't into the color of your chosen fabric?
Below you see the voucher for the male friend. This was a little more problematic because I didn't know, at all, what kind of garment he would like. So I made him a selection of 3 garments (cardigan, anorak, shirt) and wrote below 'voucher for a garment of your choice'.
I think it is all about the little details, which make these vouchers really cute and special. For example, the little copper wire clothes hanger (really easy to bend), the little labels or the little beads pretending to be buttons.
So, if you do have some time to spare, this might be a good idea for a dear friend of yours, too.
Hope you liked it and wish you all a beautiful and lovely sunday!
