Vintage Sewing Birthday Party: Invitations

I came across Louisa of FLIPAWOO last December when I was looking for holiday photo cards, and was completely drawn to her classic vintage style. So when it came time to look for custom designs for the Vintage Sewing Party, I knew that she would be perfect for the job. I asked her to design an invitation that could wrap around a wooden spool with coordinating round stickers for the top, using Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane fabrics as the inspiration. I couldn't be happier with what she came up with. Louisa used a subtle green damask print with a vintage sewing machine for the background, cross stitch fonts, and an image of a small bouquet of roses, which was repeated throughout the entire collection. It was also her idea to have them printed on textured linen paper. No joking, they're much nicer than my wedding invitations!

The invitation spools were tied with pink sorbet baker's twine from The Twinery, enclosed in glassine bags purchased from Le Box Boutique, and then hand delivered to each of the guests.
