Wedding Yetis

My brother and his fiance are getting married this weekend!!! They requested a little pair of bride and groom fuzzy plump yetis for a wedding gift. I had to oblige!

Happy little groom yeti is stylish in his top hat and bow-tie. I made the little tophat from a paper towel tube. Since the cardboard is already curved, it makes it a lot easier to form the hat and brim. The top of the hat is cardboard from a cereal box, since that part needed to be flat. Some glue, black paint, and BAM! A tiny top hat.

The bride's crown is some rhinestone trim from Joann ($17.99 a yard YOWCH! Luckily, I only needed like 3 inches of it!). The veil is sparkle tulle that I gathered with a needle and thread and sandwiched between the rhinestone trim and some ribbon with hot glue. Of course, the faces of both are pieces of a thrift store angora sweater, and the bodies are towel for that fuzzy look...

What a happy monster couple :) I'm sure Nate and Amanda are going to be even happier on their wedding day...

And SURPRISE! I sewed strong little magnets inside of the ends of the arms, so they hold hands. *Awwww*

So yes, I'm out of town... I'm at my mom's house in Oregon! Which is kind of excellent, because we figured out what was making me so sick... Our house in Alabama had mold, and I have a very high sensitivity to it :( So we had to find another place to live... So sad, but if it keeps me healthy, fine. I feel bad for Bobby, as he's back in Alabama moving ALL of our stuff into a new place back in Enterprise all by himself. Poor sweet guy... But the good thing is, when I get home at the end of the month, I won't have to go back to moldy house, and everything will already be moved.

Well, until next time... Which won't be too long, I hope. Happy Monday!
