Crochet flower bunting

Remember the granny triangle bunting I made for the shed back in October? Well it was starting to look faded so I made some crochet flower bunting to replace it. I’m still on what feels like an eternal mission to use up the last of my blue wool – hence another blue project. At least it’s not cream this time 🙂

I made the patterns up as I went along but I’ll write them up at some point. The finished flowers ended up looking quite curly so I blocked each one on a towel.

It didn’t take long for them to dry and flatten down. I also sprayed each flower with a bit of spray starch and ironed it to stop it going curly when the shed gets damp.

I crocheted them onto a cord made from single crochet stitches.

I removed the old bunting and not long afterwards a house sparrow flew into the shed window with a real wallop. Not having something obscuring the reflection must have made this window look like clear space ahead. Poor bird. Shed bunting is now a necessity for the sake of the birds!

This bunting looks equally as good from the inside too.

  1. Sure, sure, you made it for the birds…. 😉 haha, actually, that’s a great idea. We’ve had birds fly into our large front window before and it’s not pretty.
    What a cute way to beautify that window!
