I wasn’t going to make a cake topper, but then I saw this tread and my head started to work… 🙂 Surely I could combine the two ideas – crocheted hearts and bunting, what can be wrong with having both of them?! I knew I had all the material at home, so I got to work on Thursday and today I finished it!
I used the same yarn as for my wedding clutch, dowels for cake making (I use them to make the tiers sturdier), twine that we use for wrapping pretty much all gifts we give to people, an old tea towel for the banner and some embroidery yarn I’ve had for ages for the text. So all in all, a $0 in new expenses project!
The text says “I love You” but in Swedish and my fur baby seems to think that it applies to him alone… 🙂

Ah! And I think you just gave me a great idea for my cake topper! Not so sure about the design but I now know it is going to have to say “Jeg Elsker Dig” which is I love you in Danish. Brilliant, thank you!

@eocenia: My innercat lady must first comment on how beautiful your furbaby is.
Second great job! I love making crafts that I don’t have to buy new things for.

@mkelove: Thank you!
@elysion: Thanks! He’s been needy all morning – wherever I go, he comes, so even when I tried to make him stay out of the picture I couldn’t! Finally just gave in and worked with him instead!
@Vikstar: Thank you – for both compliments! 🙂
@smsorens: Wonderful, so happy to be able to pass on the cake topper inspiration! Most of our written material is in English as Fiance is Canadian (the only thing in Swedish in the invitiations is the dress code – we decided to put down both the English and Swedish version to avoid confusion), but “Jag älskar Dig” is something he knows and understands. Would love if you could send me a PM once you’re done with your version!
@pengoala: Thank you! I love when the bee works like this: you see something you like, your head starts to work and all of a sudden you have something you would never have thought of all by yourself. So inspiring!
@Miss Panda: Thank you! And crocheting is easy, I learned myself from reading instructions I found on Google! Plus, I learned while in transit on this crazy long flight I was doing – so I was tipsy most of the time… i.e. anyone can pick it up with a bit of patience! 🙂 Get a needle, some yarn and get going! PM me in case you need help!
@GoldStar: Thank you – he’s a birman, almost 1 year old. We also have an older birman (his half brother that’s 4) so the house is always full of fluffy cuteness! 🙂 And yes, free crafts projects are by far the best ones! I hate having to track all over the city to pick up $60 worth of supplies, much better when I can just raid the drawers at home!

@pengoala: Weddingbee has really been an amazing source of inspiration and help during my planning process. I’m not sure if you’ve seen any of my DIY invitation treads – but the end result was really a community effort! Without exception, if I have a question – I’ll turn here! 🙂

@julies1949: Thanks! Had so much fun doing it!
@creativeplannertobee: Thank you! They are very easy to make, the only part I found a little difficult was getting a nice result stitching the top of the heart together, but that’s because I’m not very good at sowing.
