    Simple Wedding Shower Gifts?

    There are two teachers at school that are getting married this summer. I would like to make a simple homemade gift. Any suggestions? I'm so busy with the baby quilts (5), there's no way I could make a quilt for them, but I would still like to make something special and handmade.

    A set of pillowcases in fun prints that would be meaningful to each of them, just to toss around after a hard day at school.

      Someone I know made these "Going to the Chapel" tote bags with that embroidered on front and each bridesmaids name, very cute!
      Would still be cute if just for bride.
      To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!

        The tote bags are a good idea, with a "brides emergency kit" inside. Needle and thread, clear nail polish, a couple hooks and eyes or snaps, Shout wipes, emery board,etc.

          A table runner like this one only takes a few hours. Start to finish it only took 3 hours. and if you use a charm pack it will cut out some time because you wont have to cut your squares. Very fast and very easy. I made this one for my friends Bridal Shower and she loved it.

            Or a table runner or wall hanging with the Dresden Plate. They worked up quickly too. And people just love the Dresden Plate. Hugs, Jan L

              Pillowcases sound like a great quick gift to make! There is a tut on how to make one too! Only time consuming thing would be picking out the fabric and maybe you have that in your stash! lol

                I too like the pillowcase idea - never have enough of those!

                  How about a nice candle mat...using a block that might be significant for marriage; then they could put their Unity candle on it if they had one. Otherwise finding a candle that would match a color in the mat would make a great gift. Good luck!

                    Wonderful gift ideas! I'm going to write them all down and keep the list for future reference when I need a quick gift. I love the candle mat idea. It would be neat to pick a simple pattern and make one for each season. The dresden plate makes a lovely candle mat.

                      How about a wall-hanging with their names and date they are going to be married in a nice frame? Something small that can be displayed on a tabletop next to their wedding photo might be really nice and personalized, especially if you can find out the colors of their wedding.

                        If you have an embroidery machine, copying the wedding invitation and then incorporating it into a small wall hanging goes a step further. I personalized a lap quilt for a recent marriage by adding the invitation to the back of the quilt.

                          I love this idea, I know brides always have some kind of crisis so helping to divert them would make a great gift, maybe the tote bag could be something that she could use for her honeymoon as a carryon bag,
