Deanna from Sew McCool had sticker shock when she saw how much the veils for her daughter’s First Communion cost. $175 – $300!! Luckily, she’s handy with a thread and needle and so she was able to make one herself for a fraction of that. She shares a tutorial showing how she did it. The simple gathered tulle veil could also work as a bridal veil. She attached hers to a barrette so it would stay put in her daughter’s hair, but you could also attach it to a comb if you like. Go to Sew McCool for the tutorial.
