With all the weddings in our church this summer, it has been tough to come up with a bunch of presents. I have hosted three bridal showers, and attended three weddings. Ella was the flower girl in two. This past wedding had two showers for the bride.
This particular shower was a "pounding" and grill shower. I had never heard of a pounding before I had come to the South. When Jason and I moved down here they had a pounding for us. It was so great. We shared our testimonies and everyone brought a "pound" of something to fill our cupboards. You wouldn't believe how much food we received.
So, I decided at this shower to make grocery bags for the bride. I found the idea of homespun heart. Though hers actually probably come out the same, mine were a labor of love from me. Mine, well, they are all different. Check out her tutorial. It's really helpful. She even offered to help me when I was stuck. Here's how mine turned out.
