Good morning all!! How's your week going so far? All right I hope. All ok here, but you know what, work is getting in the way! My head is seriously buzzing with ideas but there is just so little time to get it all done when I get home! Last night I was super productive. But nothing's quite finished yet, and it was all so dark, I couldn't get any decent photos for you.
Anyway, a while back, I mentionned I had this idea of making bunting. Christmas bunting. Well, it's not finished yet, it's definitely a Work In Progress, but I thought I'd give you a quick peak. Actually, it's going to be a step by step peak. You're either going to think you want to make it yourself or think I'm completely bonkers. Either way, here it goes!
Knit some bunting pieces, the almighty triangles (the pattern I followed can be found on Raverly here) and iron them flat.
Take your favourite (empty) cereal box.
Cut triangles slightly smaller than your knitted triangles.
Cut out enough for your planned bunting. (I should say here that you don't have to use cardboard at all. It's just that I used acrylic yarn that curled - ironing it seemed to flatten it all out, but I thought adding cardboard backing would give it a bit of weight/ substance and prevent it from curling again).
Keep the leftover cardboard for some other future crafty project ;-)
Sew your knitted triangle to a cardboard triangle. Try and do a better job at it than me.
Admire your rubbish handiwork. Honestly, this could have been done by a child. I'm not proud of it. But then, it works, so I don't care! And who's going to look at the wrong side of my bunting once it's hanging against a wall?!
Oh, and I nearly forgot. I'm knitting those triangles plain, and then adding letters with a different coloured yarn. This (obviously) needs to be done prior to the cardboard sewing exercise.
And there. Two done. Eleven more to go...
