Gosh, where has the last six months gone !!!!!!!!!! It's the first day of July which is always means the start of summer for me so hopefully we'll enjoy some nice, balmy days. Also it is a very busy month, with four birthdays and two anniversary's, all in one week. This year is a special month as my youngest daughter will be 18 and my husband and I will be celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary.!!!! I was a child bride, lol.
A few weeks ago, a friend's sister, via Instagram asked if I could crochet her some bunting in some pretty, summery colours. I said yes and this was my first paid commission, which I was very excited about. Who'd have thought when I learnt to crochet, 12 months later, people would ask if they could buy my projects.
I used Drops Paris yarn that is an Aran weight 100% cotton, it is great for bunting as it's a nice sturdy yarn. It is a bit splitty when you use it but I don't find it a problem as most cotton yarns split including the more expensive ones.
The pattern is a modification from the book Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench and the flower was from an old copy of Mollie Makes.
Before I added the flowers, I starched the bunting, just to give it a bit more structure. The recipient loved it and sent me a photo of it up, in her baby girl's bedroom.
One last thing, Google Reader has ceased to exist from today so I've switched to Bloglovin, if all my lovely friends want to follow my posts that way, the icon is on my sidebar,
Thanks for stopping by, have a great week.
