The Bitsy Babies are getting married. Bitsy Bride looks so sweet with her bouquet of “Forget-me-not” flowers; she even tucked a spare flower into her hair. Her Groom feels very posh in his smart suit, top hat and blue bow tie
These sweet characters would make a thoughtful wedding gift or keepsake; they could even be used as wedding cake toppers! They are easy to personalise just by changing the eye or hair colour, and of course using the wedding party colour theme for the flowers and bow tie.
This Bitsy Wedding couple are quick and easy to make. An ideal project for new knitters and a fun little project for more experienced crafters.
Recommended yarn: - Paint box yarns Simply DK Or Stylecraft Special Knit DK

What others have made
My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
