At the weekend we put some hooks up in the shed to hang tools from. Scott asked me what we could put on them and I jokingly said “wool bunting!” to which he replied “yeah okay”. Within a few hours, my hooks and wool were out and the crochet bunting was taking shape.
I used Bunny Mummy’s pattern for Colourful Crochet Bunting – this link contains the pattern and step by step instructions. The only modification I made was a single crochet in each stitch for the edging and slip stitched each triangle onto a long chain.
I have a basket full of wool from various projects so I decided to stash bust some of the leftover wool from my Nan’s blanket. I liked the slightly curved edges, so when I blocked I didn’t stretch the triangles overly tight.
It’s been a while since I made anything for us/our home. I’ve been so caught up with making things to sell, I’ve neglected crafting for no purpose other than because I want to. And a shed doesn’t really need bunting but doesn’t it look so much better with it? It adds a splash of much needed colour to our work in progress garden.
I present to you… the shed of glory.
Okay, maybe a bit over the top but you have to admit it makes sheds more fun.
