The story behind this cute and lovely manatee couple starts from the pattern by T4124.http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=224170.0
I was dying to try out the pattern but never had a chance. Since I always give away a handmade present for my married friends, so i thought i would try out the manatee pattern. And I really love the pattern, it is very easy to make.
The manatee bride is totally adorable with pearly tiara veil and rose corsage.
The corsage idea came to me when I don't want to dress up the manatee bride and think it would be fun to dress up the flipper instead of the body. The corsage is made up of rose felt and some lace.
As for the tiara veil: it is made from wire, plastic pearl and ribbons. This is my first veil, I wish I can add more volume and frill to it, but for now a simple veil would suit my bride well.
And lastly, my handsome manatee groom. Hehe the flippers is not at the same position but it looks like a swimming manatee on my cutting board.
For the gentleman's hat, it is made from felt and i embroidered it a bit to look retro and added a ribbon corsage instead of a tuxedo for the groom.
So I hope you love them too.
