There are lots of kids in the Quiches’ world, and I can’t imagine our wedding WITHOUT kiddos running around. Mini Quiche A is the junior best man, and my nephew J is the ring bearer (you can see their duds here). So, that leaves us with the little ladies. Mini Quiche J and my niece B are our (adorable) flower girls. They couldn’t be more excited! J, who isn’t a fan of dresses (to put it very mildly) did NOT want to take this dress off over the weekend. She loves B and is just excited to be wearing matching outfits. Thank goodness!
The girls are wearing simple, navy blue flip flops from Old Navy ($2.50!). But, I wanted to dress them up just a bit. Jujinjess to the rescue, again! I emailed her, and she sent me 4 pink flowers. I told her my plans to hot glue them to the flip flops, but she advised against that (they can pop off!). So, I ended up “sewing” them (as you can tell, I had a very DIY-filled weekend). It was very easy.
I have my grandmother’s old sewing basket, and I love using her vintage thread for projects
I used a double strand of thread and tied a knot on the end. Threading down through the top of the bottom layer of the flower worked best, as it hid the knot.
Then, I just wrapped it around one strap, up through a petal, around another strap, down through a petal, etc. until it felt secure. There was no rhyme or reason to this step. Then, I placed a dot of craft glue on the top of the toe strap, to hold the thread in place. And for extra security, shoved some glue under the flower as well.
