These are a wedding present for my best friend Kathryn who I have known since primary school, she is getting married tomorrow (I'm maid of honor ^_^) to a lovely guy called Nick and I wish them all the best.
Badgers have been a bit of a running gag with us for a long time, I forget why!





I took my inspiration for the badger pattern from a pattern sold by Limecat Crafts on Etsy although the pattern doesn't seem to be available anymore, it was good but not quite the size I wanted so I increased the increases and rounds, as well as tweaking the head to make it larger for the groom and smaller for the bride.
The flower pattern came from here http://mycrochetstuff.blogspot.com/2008/05/little-flowers-with-leaves-free-crochet.html and the veil and top-hat I made up as I went along!

I absolutely love bride/groom matching set figures, and that they're badgers just makes this even more amazing. I also am totally jealous that you could just make up the top hat and veil as you went along and have them turn out so well.

They are so cute.  It's too funny you do not remember why the badgers are a running joke! Smiley  You did a great job!
