Wedding Gifts,
My hope is that these bears make their way to the top of a cake or become gift tags. I would be so honored if they became part of  such a special day! I would
love to see pictures if that ever happens. Please post them on my fb page, Amigurumi Freely

Flowers:
Add in about 5 or 6 French knots with the first color. Fill in the spaces with the 2 other colors.
Lay the yarn tails in both directions, that will take away some of the bulk, trim so they are no longer than the green base.
Add flowers to the area in the circle, leave the bottom free, this part will be the stem.


Fold the edges of the green together, use the finishing green yarn tail and sew the edges together.
Bring the yarn tail through the middle and out at the bottom of the stem, just a little bit away from the bottom as pictured below. Wrap the yarn tail very tightly around the stem then knot off once you get the stem wrapped up to the bottom row of the French knots. Hide yarn tail inside.

Flowers for top piece: with any color you want
Fold in half, make a French knot in the center of the half then 1 French knot on either side.
Knot off yarn tails and  cut then up short.


Set top piece aside.

How to assemble the crinoline:
Bunch up the top part onto half the width of the top piece. Sew to hold that bunched up part. 


Assemble top piece and crinoline:
Sew the crinoline to one side of the top piece then fold over the top piece so that the crinoline is now sandwiched between the halves.
Trim the top of the crinoline then sew the top edge of the top piece together, sew the ends together, then sew through the bottom of the top piece. Knot off when done and weave in yarn tail.

Push the bobby pin through the top of the crocheted piece of the veil and use it to attach the veil to the head.


And you're done! I hope you enjoyed the pattern.
