What you need to know

Knit Susie Johns' wedding bride and groom teddy bears for a special handmade wedding gift

Knit a bride and groom for the newlyweds in your life. This adorable duo would make a fabulous gift for a happy couple on their special day. Dressed in their wedding finery, this cuddly pair would be cherished as a unique memento. They could also work as a precious gift for a little one, but be sure to take the precaution of missing out the earrings and embroidering the eyes. You could also skip the step of sewing the bride’s dress to her body as this will give your child the option of playing dress up.

Top Knit Tips

This happy couple, in all their wedding finery, are ready to walk down the aisle. The bears would make a great gift for a groom or bride-to-be.

NOTE: the instructions are for one bear, repeat for the second bear

When knitting novelty items such as these bears, making up is very important. Stitch the seams neatly and firmly and attach additional pieces such as the muzzle, ears and arms by grafting. When attaching the nose and embroidering the mouth, thread a blunt needle with a single strand of yarn and insert the needle into an inconspicuous point, such as the nape of the neck, and bring it through the work to the point where you wish to add embroidery stitches, so that the end of the yarn is lost inside the stuffing.
