Erin’s watercolor wedding invitations were among my favorites from 2012, so I was thrilled to hear from her again – this time with some invitations that she created for her sister Laura’s 30th birthday! These invitations reflect Erin’s love of sewing, with a beautiful fall-inspired corduroy fabric backing sewn to the kraft paper invitations using gold thread. Gorgeous!
From Erin: My sister, Laura, is a wedding photographer and loves gorgeous, printed invitations. For her 30th birthday, I wanted to merge her love of printed work and calligraphy with my love of sewing to add a special, personal touch. My jumping off point in the design was some gorgeous fall-esque corduroy fabric that I found at Colorado Fabrics, which I sewed onto the back of each invitation using gold thread. The green envelopes (addressed in my sister’s hand lettering) completed the invitation.
