Few years ago, my sister stepped into another stage of her life and got married. I wanted to give her something special and unique on her special day. So I handmade, from scratch, a pair of crocheted Amigurumi wedding dolls in Traditional Chinese wedding costumes. I took me quite long to finally come up with crochet patterns for the bride and the groom. I had a few trials and errors. However, they came out pretty nice and my sister was really happy receiving them!
Let’s start with the bride. The headpiece of the bride was the most difficult to make as it has so many details.
The back of the bride.
The happy and smiley bride. 😊
As a traditional Chinese custom, the bride would wear a golden pig necklace with piglets hanging under as a symbol of fertility.
Now let’s look at the groom. The groom is much easier to make than the bride.
In the traditional Chinese wedding costume, the groom usually wears a big red flower in his front.
The Chinese character on the front of the headpiece of groom means “double happiness”. It is a very commonly used symbol of marriage.
Here are the bride and the groom!
Have you ever made any wedding dolls of any sort? Feel free to share with me! Inspirations are always welcome for crafters!! 😊
