- Wedding: September 2013
My fiance is a huge baseball fan and really loves the MN Twins. As a nod to that, I decided to make my own garter and do it in Twins colors. I used the leftover lace fabric from my card box for the base of the garter (and yes I realize it should have been navy instead of royal blue but our wedding colors are royal and I already had the material!) 😉 I sewed the lace together and flipped it right side out, added a strip of white ribbon down the middle, threaded the elastic through and then sewed on both sides to keep it trapped in the middle. After gathering and sewing the ends together, I made the embellishment using red and white ribbon, and a homemade blue ribbon flower using instructions located on the net. As the finishing touch, I took apart a set of MN Twins Earrings I purchased on eBay and used the charm to finish off the garter. Let me know what you guys think of the finished product! If I get a chance, I’ll take a picture of my throw garter too – they’re very similar and both have the charms, but the throw garter has more of a lace “skirt” instead of the balanced lace on both sides like this one.
