To celebrate Ali’s bachelorette party, a group of us rented a house in Palm Springs, CA for the weekend. I was charged with organizing and decor. As a paper nerd / DIY enthusiast, I was horrified at the tackiness of all things bachelorette. From the Barbie pink colors, to the plastic tacky phallic decor, I had to DIY some elegant & chic alternatives!
I hate sewing zippers. They are so finicky. You have to have the right zipper foot, the extra layers of fabric combined with pins can break your machine needle. It’s such a cluster fu*k. Going to the fashion district always gave me major anxiety
A homemade gift is more special than a store bought one. With plenty of wedding planning/crafting time, I wanted to make something special for my wedding guests. Also, as a packaging designer I love the physical connection you can have with objects. This was a big driving force into our wedding party favors.
