WOOHOO!!! I posted my first listing on Etsy!!! GOAL ACHIEVED. These Chinese Wedding Dolls were crocheted as a Custom Order for my first international client (as well as my first Etsy customer!). I have no words for how ecstatic I am right now… so I’ll just do a happy dance. :D
They are about 8” tall, so they’ll be perfect as table decor at their wedding reception. More important, these soft sculptures will happily inhabit a cozy little corner of the newlyweds’ home, serving as a reminder of one of the happiest days of their lives! :)
I am very honored to have worked with Kevin on this creation, and I’m excited to send these sweethearts off to their new home.
Chinese Wedding Dolls! :D
I was honored when my cousin asked me to crochet a pair of dolls for his wedding reception in mid August. These little lovebirds cuddled by the huge wedding cake all night, so they received plenty of love and attention from the guests! *happy dance!* We had lots of fun celebrating the union of two families, and I’m so glad I had the chance to share my love for amigurumi with others. :)

喜喜 This Chinese character, which means “double happiness,” is usually used as a decoration for weddings and Chinese New Year. You can see them on wedding invites, gift wrap, in windows, all over walls, and basically anywhere you can think of… which makes for great crafting opportunities, of course!
I present to you a wood project that I made a while ago for a friend’s Chinese wedding reception. All it took was some plywood, a jigsaw power tool, tons of spray paint, and a WHOLE LOTTA LOVE. :D
I found a font I liked and sketched it.
Cut and sand it down. (This part was actually super difficult since I was new to this)
Spray spray spray!!
ENJOY! :D This baby got the honor of being buddies with the reception table and then the stage. YAY! :) Oh and I must take a moment to point out the lovely bridesmaid dress (on the left) that was designed and made by the bride! She has crazy fashion design skillz. :P
