Wedding planning is in full swing … and I can finally reveal another secret project that I made for my bridesmaids!

Today I was going to be writing about Mum and my lesson in beading … but I have finally delivered all of my other secret project and so I’m instead going to share that as I’m too excited!

I knew that I wanted to ask my sisters and future sisters-in-law to be my bridesmaids in a very special way. I also knew that I’d been wanting to crochet a certain pattern for a special occasion. So why not combine them and crochet a unique way of asking them? So that’s what I did!

I’ve been sharing some sneak previews for a while …

 

But now it’s time to reveal the FULL project – Can you guess what it is yet? Well there’s no need to wait any longer!

I’m pleased to say that I will be having five bridesmaids and so I made five special crocheted champagne bottles. I found this pattern in Cute Little Gifts to Crochet by Annie Obaachan:

With the pattern found I set about searching for the perfect yarn. Finding one brand of yarn that had the right shade of both green and yellow for the champagne bottle was hard. Eventually I found Scheepjes Catona cotton and used shades Spruce and Saffron. I did also buy the yarn in shades Scarlett and White as I planned to crochet all the components, but once I began I changed my mind (as usual) and in the end I didn’t crochet the ribbon or the label and instead used real ribbon and made some cross stitched labels with our initials and wedding year.

I charted out my own design for the label and stitched it in our chosen wedding colours 🙂

I know you’re desperate to see some photos of the final project … so … here goes!

All five finished crocheted champagne bottles:

I wrote out some tags with the all important question on …

  • For my sisters: “I’ve found my mister, but I still need my sister! Will you be my bridesmaid?”
  • For my future sisters-in-law: “Soon you will be my sister, but until then will you be my bridesmaid?”

I then got some special chocolate – Lindt Strawberries and Cream! – and popped them in a bag ready to be delivered 🙂

And they all said yes – YAY! I am so excited. Plus as an added bonus I have enough materials left over to make a few more … for me 🙂
