Fusion Bunting Reveal!


Things I never thought I would do Pre Blogging (P.B.)


1. Have a blog!



2. Make Bunting!


3. Refer to said bunting as *Fusion Bunting!


4. Take said Fusion Bunting outside for a photo shoot.


5. Blog about taking the Fusion Bunting outside for a photo shoot


6. Remark on experiences P.B. and A.B. by way of my blog.



7.  Become strangely addicted to exclamation marks!



 Since I first began to crochet again, I have had a yen to mix crochet and fabric. Since I cannot sew, at all, except for the ability to do rudimentary hand stitching that looks like a five year old child learning the basics, I think I have always yearned for fabric as the final frontier.


Early on I bought one of those sharp hooks that can pierce material, however had only used it once to make this cushion I made from a tea towel. 


When I saw the amazing work that Silly Old Suitcase has done, I knew this would be the way i could finally combine the fabric I had begun collecting, with my love of crochet. And thus..........I present to you my fusion bunting!!



I am totally loving it!



And I am totally aware that I enjoyed my *photo shoot with it far, far too much!! 


This has started something that may have become an obsession for me. Now I have discovered Rosehip's beautiful and amazing crochet edged pillowcases, I know in my heart, that pillowcases will be my next frontier.



If you have not seen either Silly Old Suitcase's or Rosehip's amazing, beautiful, inspirational blogs then you should go there now. Well, after you finish reading this, at least.... after you've left me a nice comment telling me about your day, then you should go right there


OK, strap yourself to you seat, or wherever it is you're reading this, and prepare for lots of photos of my bunting taking a wander around my garden.




Oh, if you're interested in how I made this, I downloaded a triangle proforma from the internet, used it to trace around and cut triangles from fabric, used the sharp crochetty hook thing to crochet through and around the triangles, then did a really basic edgy stitch into the base stitch, then joined them all together., (I'm not very good at tutorials, or how-to's)






And here is the Buntings final resting place.


You knew I had a thing about deer right!!
My bedroom wall should not come as a surprise then!


I hope your weekend is splendid, and that you do something slightly odd, that gives you mucho happiness, such as having a bunting photo shoot.

  1. I'm always glad of the fact that our neighbours are seldom there as it allows me to indulge in jumping around my garden like the paparazzi taking photos of things I've made....love the bunting, I really want one of those pointy hooks, I've seen som lovely things done with them.

  10. Your trees look so lush - you must live in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Isn't it funny how blogging prompts you to do things you've never done before? I've had the same experience.

    Beautiful bunting, and I really like that fabric.
