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.
If you want to make your own, I’ve put together a list of free crochet flower patterns you could use:
