Handmade Groom's Boutonnière

I am making all the boutonnières and wedding decorations for my wedding in June. I'm not having any flowers at my wedding since they are expensive. I've always loved peacock feathers, so I use the feathers to replace any traditional flower decoration for my wedding. Here's a preview of the look of the boutonnières. This one is my fiancé's, which I enjoyed making the most. :)

The groomsmen and both our mothers have similar boutonnières, but slightly different. You'll just have to wait to see those at or after the wedding!

P.S. I bought 100 count peacock feathers here.

Hello World!

Today is a the birthday of my blog. I will share neat things here, and generally attempt to share my interests with anyone who finds theirs similar. 

With that, I will start off showing the little monster I crochet using this cute pattern at CRAFTYisCOOL blog. I've been crocheting Sackboys for our wedding cake toppers, and it's been a difficult start. The yarn I was using, which happened to be the PERFECT color, was too big, making a giant Sackboy. Since the wedding cake is going to be small, that just wasn't going to work. So I have yet to start over with the new yarn I got (which was finally found at the third store I went to). In the mean time, I needed a little instant gratification to keep me interested, which is why I crochet this little monster! He's adorable.

Thanks for stopping by! Check back to watch my blog grow!
