For my college graduation I received a Brother sewing machine from my grandpa and grandma, aunt & uncle, and uncle. It was seriously the best gift I could have received at the time. I spent a lot of time sewing fleece blankets in early 2003 when I was working as a substitute teacher. During the summer of 2003 I made this wall hanging for my friends who were getting married. Their wedding color was periwinkle and it was really difficult to find fabric that color. I added buttons to represent their interests.
