Here at Messy La, there is a range of things that I create and sell. I mostly share my cardmaking on the blog – because it’s my favourite- however, I also make these little silk satin sixpence bags for brides.
And a lucky sixpence for your shoe”
Tradition says that the bride’s father should place a silver sixpence coin in his daughter’s left shoe to ensure a lifetime of happiness, good health and wealth. I thought this was a really beautiful tradition that I wanted to bring back to life (It fizzled out as the making of the silver sixpence stopped).
These little bags come in a variety of beading and also a variety of colours – blue, purple, cream, white and coffee coloured. They are handmade from start to finish with love and a lot of time. It’s really intricate work, but is for a lovely celebratory day!
I will put these for sale on my online shop, they are also available in Melle Cloche on Byres Road. Stop by and have a look!
