Love Birds

A while back I showed you the bodies I had crocheted of two little love birds. They are destined to top a friends wedding cake. Well I finished them and the wedding has been and gone (Congratulations guys!). Want to see how a few details can transform a basic shape??
So what is needed?? A beak and eyes? Wings? definitely some accessories! Here they are the finished pair
The wings of the bride however divided opinion. I liked the heart yo-yo made from the bridesmaid fabric, my sister who got a sneak peak preferred the simpler grooms wings…only one thing for it…ask the bride!!
Here’s a look at the original wings. A mauve heart yo-yo backed with some pewter net.
The bride preferred the simpler version too. So the yo-yo wings were snipped off. Even better she had a few more fabric samples. A snippet from her dress which was being altered and the embroidered net which was also part of the bridesmaid dress. I think it is the perfect combination and I am so happy with the result. What do you think?? what do you prefer?
The tiara is just some beading wire crocheted into a headband shape and then some more wire twisted with some beads into a bow shape to hopefully echo the one that the bride will wear. If I get a photo of them on top of the cake then I’ll show you!"!
