Granny Flower Bunting

Hello.......... Todays the day this make gets a Ta-Dah moment at last!!

It's something that's been sitting around for a while, in fact I first blogged about it 'here' in June 2013 eek, when I made some Granny Bunting for Yarndale and decided to make some for the Summerhouse too.

I used Lucy's wonderful pattern and various seaside shades of Stylecraft Special DK to make the bunting, edging each with a row of single crochet in a complimentary colour.

I played around with a few flower patterns to add to the bunting but in the end opted for 'Emma's' wonderful flat flower pattern. I made the flowers up to match the borders of my bunting triangles and then added cute buttons.

Before stitching them onto the bunting. To hang the bunting I just made a long chain and threaded it through, catching the triangles at the corners with a few stitches to hold them in place.


My Granny Flower bunting, which I've decided will also be going into the Local Craft Exhibition at the end of the month, for the theme of Fantasia, aka 'Waltz of the Flowers Bunting'.

Here it is hanging up, I found it quite tricky to photograph with all the dull weather we've had this week.

So one old WIP completed, so far so good with the New Years Resolution to dig some of them out and finally get them finished.

 2013-2015 to make one bunting eeek !!!

Happy Crafting
