And by “Bye” I mean it’s ready to go off in the post as my cousin’s baby has now arrived!

So, on this first day of the month I am truly happy to begin with a grand Ta-Dah for my baby bunting. It has been a joy to make, combining crochet with bondaweb, felt and a little bit of sewing – great fun!

Drum roll please…..!


All pennants together



Letters in place



All in place




To say I’m really pleased would be an understatement!!

Thank you to Lucy of Attic24 fame as the idea came from her Jolly Festive Bunting. When I first saw it I thought it would make the perfect ‘new baby’ gift and had to give it a try. I used Rico Creative Cotton which is a bit splitty to work with but the colours are great.

So, onward and upward… there’s the Blanket Statement crying out to be finished now, and then there’s the Bernat Mystery Afghan CAL. Never a dull moment…!

The bunting is off to the Post Office along with the baby beanie and socks…

Little parcels for the little man!

Happy Thursday xxx
