I had the chance to do wedding accessories for my friends’ wedding, who I consider more of my “bebes.” They were just small pieces but I was just so happy. =)
So these were the items:
Drawstring / Purse for Wedding Coins / Arras
I wanted to embellish the drawstring for the wedding arras with 4-leaf clover as a good luck to the couple. I used MyPicot’s Crochet Shamrock stitch but I modified it to make it 4-leaf. You can find the pattern here >>.
This was made from Sugar Free Fiber Arts’ Mountain of Light Soft Diamond. I added green sewing thread to the “4-leaf clover” part to make them more visible.
Bride / Wedding Garter
At first, I wanted to make a lacy garter. But I was having a hard time finding a lacy but on the fierce side kind of design because I just cannot see Jean, the bride, as that “lacy girly” kind of girl. So I ditched the lacy idea, and made a “Wonder Woman” themed wedding garter. Any how, if it would not suit the bride’s taste, it would really not make a disaster of their wedding. =)
I used Monaco mercerized cotton thread for the wedding garter. For the pattern of this Super Woman wedding bridal garter, I based it from a Wonder Woman beanie / hat which I found from stellabella_crochet’s instagram.
Vlogger @keihlasmom (check out her videos here >>) trying the wedding garter. This is how it’s supposed to be worn.
Somehow, they did not get the memo. =)
I originally made this doily as the arras purse. But I made another one, the one above, because it’s a bit hard to convert it to a drawstring. I just gave it to them; in case, they need something as backdrop for their wedding rings or whatnot.
I used the Sugar Free Fiber Arts’ Mountain of Light Soft Diamond for this too.
