Trending - Tandem Bicycles

I've been getting a few requests for tandem bicycle items lately and I'm loving how they look! I'm not even a bicycle rider, but these tandem bicycles are just too cute :) And they're perfect for wedding items!

My first request was for a set of wine bottle stopper favors and a matching guest book.

I loved how well these turned out, so I made a larger version of the guest book.

And a set of cuff links. (sold two of these this week already!!!)

I'm thinking a wedding invitation and custom flask may have to be next!
What trends are you liking lately?

I never thought of a tandem bike as an emblem before, but these are way cool!

I'm not a bike rider either but I love these!
They look so cute.

These are so cute! There is a couple in my neighborhood who rides a tandem bike, and I always see them when I'm going for my evening walks. They look so happy. :)

I've seen lots of tandem bikes around. It's definitely a big trend right now and I love what you've made with them. :)

I like the new design! I once tried riding a tandem bike with a friend, which was much harder than it looks like. You need to get on the bike at the same time and you need to start pedalling at the same time. We did have fun while trying :-)

WAY cute, Edi! I've actually seen a few tandem bikes around town lately, and the kids always love it when they see people riding around on them. =)
Pretty cool. Custom requests are always awesome!

Very cute. I especially like the wine stopper. I am amazed at the detail of your work on such a small piece.

Wow--I think you're on to something! Riding a tandem is a great metaphor for making a marriage work!

I wrote an article about tandem bike wedding ideas earlier this year after I became aware of this trend. It's a fun take on the standard bicycle theme. How awesome that you've already sold two sets of cufflinks! A tandem bike invitation sounds like a great addition, too.

So cute! When we stayed at Sisters, Oregon for the quilt show, our hosts were riders and rode into town on their tandem!

That's cool! Well, they look cool - I personally think only a crazy person would want to ride one! A place I used to work used to rent tandem bikes (they had stopped a few months before I started), and people would either complain or tell us how relieved they were all the time. I heard lots of funny stories!

I would never thought tandem bikes were trending. Very interesting! If we had one we'd never made it to our 26th anniversary. :)

The tandem bikes are really fun! This is an interesting trend. I wonder if people are actually riding around on tandems these days. That is not something you see too often.

i LOVE the wine stopper! thanks for the awesome find!

Yes, they ARE cute! It's fun to see folks riding tandem bikes. Both my husband and I ride bikes, but have no interest in riding tandem.

I"m a bit behind on my blogging! I do love the wine bottle stoppers. The bike is so cute!
