Today I want to also thank  Emediong all the way from Port Harcourt, Nigeria for sharing her birdcage veil & fabric flower with me.  She said she was inspired by my videos so she knew how to make this Texas girl happy & thankful;)  I had asked her a few questions and she kindly took the time to reply.  Well,  I hope you get inspired by Emediong to make something.  Enjoy!

1)Your name & where do you reside? My name is Emediong and I reside in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
2)Why did you decide to DIY? I decided to do DIY because I love creating something beautiful with my hands.

5) Pros and cons of the project:
Pros: Very beautiful, versatile
Cons: The challenge of cutting the pattern/template out on organza as the material is very sheer

6) What was your favorite part of the process? My favourite part of the process was seeing the flower coming together as I was sewing. I was smiling as I saw this happening🙂. It made me feel like wow, I am going to make something beautiful and gain knowledge of how to make this flower first future projects.

7) how long did it take you? The cutting out of the template was what took the most time but the sewing and assembly process did not waste time at all. Maybe about 20mins for everything or slightly more.

8) anything else you would like to add? ADDITIONAL NOTES: The tutorial was very detailed and simple enough to understand. There was no way one could have problem replicating the flower.  Also, it was very nice to have the free template made available too, very nice.  Thank you

FOR THE BIRD CAGE:
All answers remain the same minus those below:
5. PROS: The bird cage was very lovely.  CONS: The bridal face net here is different from the one there so it was a bit challenging sewing through.

6. My favourite part was seeing the pattern followed to have a perfectbird cage look because up till then I’ve always just thought of crunching up the face net at the edge to create the look but was excited to learn this technique.

Thank you Emediong!  I hope everyone got inspired by Emediong because I sure did.  May you all have a wonderful creative Thanksgiving Holiday Season!  I believe there is always something to be grateful for whether it be something small or big.   What are you thankful for?  Many blessings to you!

Hugs!
