As a reminder, here are the ties that I purchased for the guys:

I had originally thought that a silk would work well, since that's the traditional fabric for pocket squares, but the colors that they had didn't match.
SO, I checked out the Special Occasion fabrics, and found some taffeta that looked as though it would work. It was stiff enough that it would hold shape, and it came in a variety of colors that would match the ties.
As I went though the collection, the green was spot on with the ties, and the orange was too, but the yellow didn't match. I started to look at other fabrics to see if there was anything else that matched, but there wasn't anything close to the colors that I needed.
I decided that since the yellow was for FI, that it was alright if he had a different color pocket square, since he is the groom. As you can see from the picture above, the tie isn't completely yellow, so I decided that the white fabric would work perfectly for FI's pocket square.
I bought a half yard of the green, orange, and the white taffeta, and got to use my coupon too. Now all I had to do is make the squares. That was simple and quick too, since all I did was cut out a 16" square, and then hem the edges to make the fabric not shed.
