I made these little guys in June of 2008...yes, that's right nearly a year ago and I'm just now able to share them with you! :D
My Dad got married this past weekend! These cuties were made for him and his new bride.
Little Bat pattern by Shala (Rav link here) come up on Ravelry, I knew I had to make it for them. Then when they were talking about getting married, I thought it would be funny to adapt the pattern to a bride and groom bat. They LOVED them!
I was also very happy to make the cake for them. It was a yummy dark chocolate cake with my best ever dark chocolate buttercream icing and topped off with dark and white chocolate shavings. YUMMY!!! And since they didn't want any "wedding-y" kind of decorations *on* the cake...I thought the bats were perfect to sit next to it! I think it worked rather nicely! :D
And because I really like my new StepMom, I wanted to do something really nice for her for the wedding too. So I made a Crocus Bud Shawl (Rav link here) for her. She's allergic to wool, so I found a really pretty bamboo thread (you know I have this thing for bamboo anyway!) to use for it. It has a really nice sheen and drape and is realllllly soft! And I was thrilled that she liked it so much she wore it for the wedding!
I don't have those pictures yet to share, but I will as soon as I can ... presuming she's OK with it. ;-)
Congratulations Dad and StepMom! :D
Hmm...I'll have to talk to StepMom about a blog moniker for her. ;-)
