How to Crochet Tutorial: Rose Flower Headband & Floral Wedding Bouquet

How to Crochet Tutorial: Rose Flower Headband & Floral Wedding Bouquet

On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me….Flowers! Haha! I made a holiday headband using the same flower design I used in my bridal bouquets for my wedding earlier this year! I used a small bead detail to adorn the center for the perfect touch! Don’t need a headband? Don’t worry, this flower design is perfect for so many other projects!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make the flowers and leaves:

Crochet Tutorial: Fairy Tunic

Crochet Tutorial: Fairy Tunic

My very last installment in the Link and Zelda costumes is The Fairy Tunic. I spent each night well past midnight the week before Halloween, trying to finish and achieve some level of authenticity to these costumes. I made this tunic a bit larger than my frame as it had to fit over the dress I had purchased at a thrift store. It can easily be altered by adding corset ties down the back to help cinch it in a bit.

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this shirt:

Crochet Tutorial: Destiny Headband

Crochet Tutorial: Destiny Headband

If you are following me on my blog or any social media, you will recall that I released my Link to the Past Phrygian Cap last week as Part One of the Halloween cosplay costume designs that I am creating for Nate and myself.

Today, Part Two of the costume set, is this Destiny Headband. This is a bit of a tedious process using thin thread and crocheting around wire, but the results are worth the efforts! Continue to stay tuned to more great patterns along the way to complete one or both of my costume series!

Not into the costume idea? Make a headband with just leaves! You could also use the leaf applique separately for flowers or anywhere you would need to add a decorative embellishment.

Happy Halloween!

This blog is compiled to show the costumes I made for Nate and myself. You can find them all in one place rather than navigating through my blog to find each individual pattern. Here, I have them all in one spot for your convenience. You can click the links in the paragraphs before the photos or you can simply click the photos to view the video tutorials and written patterns for each individual piece for these costumes.

We start with the Beast Hat. It’s perfect not only for a costume (although, I will warn you, it is very warm, and won’t last long in a crowd of people), but also for cold days! It’s an easily adaptable and versatile pattern by changing colors and embellishments to make any animal-istic creature that you fancy!

beautyandthebeast6

 

Second, you will find the Beast Gloves here. With some simple modifications, you can take these very scary beast gloves and turn them into an easy pair of hand-warmers, just by omitting the finger portion of the pattern. These were made to enhance the crochet costume. Have fun with it!

beast4

Next up, by making a very simple chain, I was able to create this embroidery embellishment detail that I sewed onto the costume jacket. I first traced out the design in a chalk pencil, chained the length needed for each scroll design and sewed it on using a yarn needle. I added some lace and just pinned it inside the sleeves and on the collar.

beastcoat

Lastly, I made these simple foot coverings. These are a very basic flat panel using double crochet with an ankle cuff that wraps around the bottom of the leg. Once complete, I sewed fur through the stitches to give it a paw-like look that can be worn over shoes. (These do not have a written pattern or a video tutorial)

beautyandthebeast7

For the Princess costume, I created the shirt here. This is one of two pieces for the dress ensemble. I added tulle and embellished the outfit with medium sized flower roses that I used in my Floral Dream Crown tutorial.

bellecostume8

The Princess Costume Skirt was the second piece I crocheted for this ensemble. As you will see in the pattern, you can make this as big or as small as you want it to be. This can modified to be made in a variety of princess dresses by changing colors or adding different embellishments.

Lastly, I added the Enchanted Rose Cape that can be found here as a finishing touch to this princess costume. This cape can also be modified into a poncho or a bridal cape.

Crochet Tutorial: Princess Costume

An enormous amount of improvising was done in the creation of this princess dress that I made for my Halloween costume. Nate and I are attending a costume party this year and I was all set to make sure that this was created in time. But boy, did I underestimate how hard it would be to make this ensemble! In the process, I ran out of yarn, I had to frog my work a few times, and actually shed a few tears. The skirt wasn’t as voluminous as I hoped, but you know what, it doesn’t matter anymore! I finished it, and I am getting passed the flaws to appreciate the work that went into making this. Overall, it may not be exactly what I imagined, but once in awhile a project takes on a life of its own and still turns out alright!

This pattern is for the basic dress design. However, you can change color. Add or subtract embellishments or details to customize your own costume. Pick a princess you love and go for it! Whether it be yellow like the one in this tutorial or pink, blue, a blue top with yellow skirt, green. Modifying this for any character can bring your costume to life!

Once the shell of the costume was made and the side panels added, I used similar colored tulle to enhance the sides giving the skirt full scallop look. I sewed the tulle in the sides and tucked it in the center then secured the entire piece with a center rose. I used the medium size rose flower from my Floral Dream Crown pattern.

bellecostume4

bellecostume6
Using a corset style lace-up, I used ribbon to create a closure for the shirt. Simply tying it down the back creates this look.

bellecostume7
I wrapped tulle around the shoulders of the top and using a couple stitches, I secured it into place. I added another rose in the center bust area to tie in this design with similar details as the skirt.

bellecostume8

I finished the shell of my princess skirt in the photo below. It was still a work in progress as I planned to add details and volume. I had a revelation after trying it on for sizing, that by itself, the shell works nicely for a basic maxi skirt. After trying it on I was like, “I would totally wear the skirt like this!”

Lion Brand Yarns Modern Baby (173 yards each skein–10 skeins for Skirt, 2 skeins for top) (2,076 yards total)
I-5.50mm Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle
Scissors
Stitch Markers

NOTES:

-The  pattern video tutorial starts at 8 minutes 14 seconds. The first 8 minutes are frequently asked questions and other information.
-You can use any cotton/acrylic/polyester yarn you want to use. As long as it’s a thinner and lighter weight yarn. Having so much yarn can result in a heavy skirt.

-This pattern is written for an adult size, but you can make it any size by chaining more or less. The top doesn’t have any multiple so you can chain as many as you need to in the beginning. The skirt is in a multiple of 14, so you can make your chain as big as you want as long as your count is in the multiple of 14. (I explain all this in the video if that is confusing)

-You can use a smaller or larger hook to make this smaller or bigger depending on your tension.

-For measurements and to learn how big mine turned out to be, watch the beginning of the video tutorial. For the top, I measure it as I go.

-This took me approximately 12 hours to complete fully.

Crochet Tutorial: Dolls-Bride and Groom

Crochet Tutorial: Dolls-Bride and Groom

I was recently planning a bridal shower for my brother’s fiancé and wanted to do something special using crochet. I ran across a blog, Amigurumi Askina, featuring a bride and groom doll set. The pattern happened to be in Turkish so I used a bit of translation and modifications and made up my own pattern to create this set of dolls. My tutorial videos are in two parts. The first part demonstrates the bride, and part two shows how to make the groom.
Bride and Groom

These adorable dolls are great to feature at a bridal shower or wedding, and you can modify them to make a prince & a princess, a king & a queen, just a boy & a girl, and, with marriage equality, it would even be cute to make two brides or two grooms!

Bride

Groom

Another thing you could customize are the features of each doll. You could change the eye color, hair color, skin tone, flower colors, dress color, and suit color. You can add personal touches to emulate the person you are trying to make. You can get creative with these, the possibilities are endless!!

The final product is not your typical tiny amigurumi. These measure approximately 8-10 inches tall (20-25 cm).

Anybody would be happy to receive such a unique and special gift! This is not an easy project, as I say in my video, I would recommend an intermediate to advanced level crocheter to attempt this, but feel free if you want a little bit of a challenge!

This is how I displayed the dolls at the bridal shower. Using the groom pattern, I modified it to make a little boy to represent my nephew.
Family

Before I share the video and pattern, I want to share with you a personal moment of my nephew playing with the dolls. His parents are the ones getting married this summer and he was playing “wedding.” haha! He even made the bride and groom kiss! It was priceless!
