Crocheting a Wedding

 

 

Girls, I’m getting married! And because i am crazy I’ve decided to incorporate as much crochet as possible.

I have always loved the bunting used at Yarndale, really loved it. And now I have the chance to make it for an actual event. The reception space loves the idea and is keen for me to go over the top! I figured I need about 80 metres to fill the space. Each motif is 18cm with blocking, so I think i’ll need about 400 triangles. Help me! Here’s some fun facts, each triangle weighs 8 grams, and takes about 15 minutes. This doesn’t include end weaving, or blocking. I might invest in a steam iron to block with. I’ve not bothered with blocking before, but this pattern really needs it.

So apart from miles and miles of bunting I’m also going to make flower garlands with a whole bunch of cotton. I’m going to use my thrifted crochet table cloths for the tables (luckily only 4 tables). Pinterest is filled with crochet bouquets but I don’t really like them, also my bouquet is real flowers.

I might attempt a wedding dress, who knows though! What else can i make, realistically?
