i had a recent etsy customer who ordered 8 of my jewelry rolls as bridesmaids gifts for her upcoming wedding.
i was delighted when she decided to use each of the 8 dot prints i carry as her fabric choices. she turned me loose to pick the zippers and ribbon colors myself.
i was nervy trying to put together cohesive, stylish, and yet a wide-ranging set of colors. i considered that a wedding party can often have wildly different taste and fictionally typecasted each jewelry roll for a corresponding girl: from tomboy little sister of the groom (green and white for her) to preppy sorority sister (pink and navy for her) .
i could not me more smitten by how these turned out! i love how they are clearly a unified set (you know i love an iteration), but are all so distinct.
why, yes, they're octuplets, but they're fraternal! (is what i will tell people in stores as i push them around in their octostroller. (i may have gotten a tad attached to these little fellas along the way).
i tried to imagine which color combo would be most likely to cause a bridesmaid catfight as they all scrambled to own it and jumped around wildly on which was my favorite.
sealing up the package to send to my sweet bride customer was a little difficult, but luckily i took some pictures of our time together to remember my octuplets as they leave for their forever homes.
i want to live somewhere under this rainbow.
they are so happy to see us! look how they're smiling!
if you held a gun to my head, i think the coral/gray combo is my favorite. followed closely by the aqua/yellow. but then again i love the red/teal and the sky/tangerine. ok, you probably just had to shoot me with that gun, didnt you? dangit. i really left you no choice.
baby roll is your favorite?
