Crochet Bunting







I found the Martha Stewart yarn on clearance that I loved from last fall.

I grabbed 3 balls.
Blue, White , and Red

I was in the mood to make something fun and with quick results.

Yesterday it was HOT, so as child slept I watched my dvr'd Dallas and crocheted away.

I thought it would fun to make a cute bunting to fill the awkward window spaces we have in our baths.

I was so proud of myself, I actually finished a project in one sitting and followed thru on blocking it properly so it would lay flat.

Super easy and cute for a relaxed afternoon on the couch with a crochet hook.

I hope to be able to sit a do a little cutting of a pattern I bought a year ago. I set out to make poufs a year ago and still haven't even cut the pattern. So If I get the material in the laundry now, I can sit and cut later while child naps. :) It will hopefully look something like this but with vintage grain sack material. Found at the countrychiccottage.blogspot.com
Tune in tomorrow to see if I actually get anything accomplished.

This bunting turned out so cute Amy! Wow, it didn't take you long at all. Those pieces would have taken me more than one afternoon. :)
I just love B's bathroom, and I agree - the paper lanterns would be neat in here like bubbles.
So sweet!
