2 Year Wedding Anniversary – Gifts of Cotton

Merriweather Stitchery

In the US, the tradition dictates gifts of cotton for a two year wedding anniversary

How sweet is that? Gifts of paper for the first anniversary and gifts of cotton for the second. (The actual sweet tasting stuff comes in later!)

Cotton is a beautiful, durable and versatile fabric and I love making gifts for couples celebrating their two year with it.

As you likely know, I simply adore customizing things. Personalization is my middle name. Not really, my middle name is Christina, but you get my drift.



Yup. Second anniversary celebration appropriate gifts all up in the shop.


While I am happy stitching just about anything, especially gifts, I have to say I am partial to the tie square. I like to think that they are being sewn onto hubby-ties as surprise anniversary morning gifts. You know, before he heads off to work! So cute!
