It’s June, it’s traditionally a time thought of as wedding season, so it seems highly appropriate that I’m going to talk weddings, or more specifically about a mini crocheted bride and groom set that’s now available from my Deramores Designer Shop
Sadly, due to COVID-19 times, weddings have been a little different to the norm recently, but here’s hoping with vaccines and all the steps that we have put into place with various lockdowns to keep people safe, that we are hopefully moving in the right direction for more normal weddings in the future.
Until then these mini bride and groom could be a really fun addition for a future wedding celebration as wedding cake toppers, as table decorations or just as a sweet keepsake for someone – I’m really excited to see where you go with these!
For my little bride and groom I used Deramores Studio DK in Frost, Latte, Peridot, Light Pink, Blush, Chocolate and Ebony with a 3.25mm hook. If you aren’t familiar with Deramores Studio DK it’s lovely soft 100% acrylic anti-piling yarn which is fab for making amigurumi with as it doesn’t get all bobbly over time like some other yarns can.
It could be a great way to add that handmade touch to your wedding day, as the mini bride and groom can totally be mixed and matched, make two brides, two grooms, change hair colour, add things like wire spectacles or other accessories and change the flowers / bowtie colours for that personalised wedding feel.
If you were on the look out for more patterns, for adding that element of handmade to a wedding, then I have a couple more patterns you may like including; the FREE Shining Light wedding wrap or the Floral Mandala Ring Cushion.
And if you were looking for more general amigurumi designs to make then you can find several different patterns in my Deramores Designer Shop.
If you do make up a bride and groom I hope you will share pictures on social channels using the hashtag #Deramores and #kcacouk so we can share your wonderful work.
Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
