Got a wedding invitation last July and I was overjoyed to have received the invitation….. Accepted with joy!
The next few days my mind was full of lingering thoughts of getting a special gift for her…. What should I get, ya? Hmmmmmmm…..
Then, the “light bulb” moment appear out of no where and tadaaaaa……it shall be Totoro wedding couple (bride and groom). I remember she had a “Totoro key pouch” and I presume she should like “Totoro”, then. So, it shall be “Totoro wedding couple”
And so, I began to do a lot of research on the dress and the colours of yarn to use for the bride and groom. The natural colour of Totoro supposed to be grey but I thought it be more “stand-out” in blue and pink. Especially the sparkly yarn will really signify the “special” groom (blue) and bride (pink) figure. The blue will camouflage as the tuxedo and I just added the black hat and black bow to make it look more formal.
As for the bride…..I did a few dress and it just didn’t look good and finally, i decided to do just a cloak with the finishing pink rose. It turned out awesome. The veil was also handmade. Sewn 3 white roses to a crochet piece and add-on the double layer sheer fabric to make a great looking headpiece veil. Everything was done within 2 weeks but missing the sheer fabric….Where am I gonna get that? Online? Then, I recall during the “Girls Day Out with Baby A“, I saw some sale in “Spotlight” on the sparkly sheer fabric. So, next day, hubby and I went to hunt for the fabric. Soooooooo happy to find the fabric and the “final assembly” date is set!
Some of the pics taken while the assembly was done…..
It’s a wonderful journey for me to put together this masterpiece. It was delivered and I’m glad she liked it!
