Bunting Crazy

Here I go again.. or should I say my friends! They’re all loving Alex’s bunting so much that I just could NOT ignore a friends hint as to how lovely it would be to have some for their children.. plus I only need half an excuse anyway!

So being the kind person that I am and being totally fed up with this weather, I just had to make some. Each one that I make just seems to improve I’ve mixed medias here with bits and pieces of various patterns that I have seen and I’m really liking the result.

Nia’s letters are made up in faux pink leather with sequins (thanks to Mo and beads from some old earrings for embellishments) The end flowers are just foam shapes formed to look like flowers with little leaves.


Zach’s is a very “boyish bunting”. His favourite colour is green and again I used foam shapes formed to look like little “impish” eyes on the ends.. as with all these projects, you just have to let your imagination run a little (especially if your purse strings are tight after a house move)… so these are the results of the stash that was there to be used.


If you would like to have a go at this, then look at my old post …. for the patterns guides and the templates for your letters…   https://helencrochet1.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/bunting-letters-and-funky-groovyghans/

Now to make my mind up as to what to make next out of my stash … decisions!

Anyone have any ideas for me?

Sending you a thousand sunny days to brighten things up with huge hugs and a smile xxxxxxxx helen xxxxxxxx

  1. I’m getting in first before anyone else Helen. Could I commission you to do a DOODLY BIRDS bunting please. I think it would brilliant across the front of my stall.
    I use quite vibrant colours limes, oranges, bright blues, reds, bright pink.
    Ooh what do you think, is it a challenge. Can you do it and how much please. I’m getting excited with the idea your bunting are so gorgeous.

  2. So, I hope nobody of your friends’ kids has the name Nikolaus-Alexander or Marialouise-Mirabelle… This would mean quite more work to you, hehe.
    New project? Hm. Let me think. What is in your stash? Can you post a picture?
    I always like to make cushions or blankets out of my left over yarns, but in the end the blanket project needs new yarn to be bought… Maybe a scarf? Or an animal?
