Cross Stitch Place Names

Hello everyone, it has been far too long since my last blog post, mostly due to a lot going on, but I am glad to be back.

I consider myself to be quite a crafty bride to be and always like coming up with ideas to add more personal touches to our wedding day. Early on in wedding planning I considered using my cross stitching hobby to make the place names, but I did a google and wimped out! Then I came across The Making Spot. Now this is a blog that every crafty person needs to see, and the fantastic Zoe from @TheMakingSpot gave me the bit of courage I needed after I saw these lovelies.

How fantastic do these look?!

So I sat down with squared paper and our Save the Date cards and set about designing a pattern that matched!

So here is  picture of the two most important place names for the day! 

The only thing I haven't decided is whether to have them attached to card or to attach them to pieces of material and have them laid out on the guest's table.

Maybe a little something like this from John Lewis?

So what do you think? I would love to hear your comments.

Make sure you take a look at and @TheMakingSpot on Twitter!
