My cousin got married on Sunday and I couldn't afford to get them a gift, so, as usual when in these situations, I whipped out my crochet hook and made them their present: a little bride and groom doll that are supposed to look like them! These are my first human amigurumis.



The bride went barefoot, hense the lack of shoes. My mom helped me cut out clothes to sew them. I didn't add faces because I couldn't figure out a style of eyes that didn't make them look like aliens at the time. Also, I forgot to take a close-up of the rings, but I added gold thread on thier left hands so they could be officially married.

I bought the small boquet of flowers at Micheals and used the left over tulle and ribbon to make it pretty and decorative. Also, I added pearl beading on the top of the bodice for prettyness:






I came up with the idea for a corset backing, but my mom sewed it on because I was busy sewing the groom's vest together.


The finishing touch, the garter:


I gave it to them early, so that they could be used as a cute decoration (My grandma, who's in the picture, made the yummy/gorgeous cake. She was arranging the tulle around it when the picture was taken. She's gunna kill me for posting this picture. :p):


And here's a shot of the real couple, right after they were declaired Mr. and Mrs.:


Comments or contructive crit please. Thanks so much for looking. Cheesy

I love how you styled the bride's hair.
Such a great gift, and they don't look like your first humans at all.  They look cute with blank faces, and I love the little rings.
Great job!!

Really cute!  I love the groom's hair, and all the details that went into the dress.  Great job as usual!  You 're very talented, I'm sure they loved themselves in a crocheted version!  Did you use any reference for the body of the dolls?  I am looking for a doll base pattern.

Thank you! The bride's hair was so hard to style because she had so much of it! Next time I know to use a thinner yarn. My mom acutally styled the real bride's hair too. Smiley I'm glad you like their faces! I was a little worried about that but i'm reassured now that everyone seems to enjoy it.

Oh, thank you! They did love it. My cousin, the bride, kept on grabbing them off the table to show them off to the guests. It was so sweet. I got my inspiration from Gormet Amigurumi. It turned out a lot different that I origionally planned, but I think that's good because it gives mine a little more unique. Here's the blogpost I was origionally inspired by: http://www.gourmetamigurumi.com/?p=40

Thank you. They did end up liking them a lot more than I anticipated, which I was greatful for. The only problem with this gift is that everyone liked them so much that the rest of my cousins are demanding one for when they get married. XD
