One of my colleagues at work has been nominated to do the decorations for a mutual friends 30th birthday party next week. The birthday girl is a very keen crafter so will appreciate the handmade decorations that are being planned. I recently bought a pattern called Big Flower Party, a delicious pattern for 10 different flowers and some really cute mini bunting.
This is a really great pattern, all the instructions are clear and concise and there are step by step photos for each flower. I have been dying to use this pattern to make some Flower Garlands so was pleased to be able to volunteer to help with the party decorations. I selected my favourite lovely bright and cheerful colours.
Then added some darker tones.
Then some paler colours for contrast.
Suitably pleased with my basket of colours I could not wait to get started, these are going to be the most colourful Flower Garlands. Making lovely colourful crochet flowers is very uplifting and reminds me that spring is looming after all the cold, cold snowy weather we have had recently.
Flower number 1.
Flower number 2.
And I used the ends of the chain to make a loop so they will be easy to hang.
At the back of the pattern were instructions to make Mini Bunting, I could not resist trying out this extra pattern.
And once I started it was just so sweet I made 5 strands in different colours.
I absolutely love, love , love this Mini Bunting.
