Wish Granted! Finally Making A Crocheted Bouquet!

I've had so many firsts in my crochet career these past few months. Just these last few weeks though, I had crochet firsts in weddings: a crocheted bride & groom cake topper and a crocheted arrhae pouch.

Last December, I debuted my first sample crocheted bouquet. I've been wanting to make a full-blown and legit one for a bride.

Jut this month, I got commissioned to crochet one! I am super excited for this project. I like how my crocheting skills are being challenged by each client. I am grateful for the opportunity to show how great this craft is. I am grateful as well for the trust being given to me to make projects that become part of one's special day.

Here are my initial pieces for the bouquet. I'm feeling really good about the outcome. This is probably only 15% of the entire bouquet. I am itching to finish this already. It's a lot of hard work but it will be worth it :)
One good thing about having a crocheted bouquet is that it won't wither! You can even add your own scent to it because it's made of fiber. I also got commissioned to crochet boutonnieres for the male entourage and for the groom. This wedding will be a crochet showcase!
Of course, I can only reveal the completed one after the wedding on the 1st week of May. I cannot wait!
