You may remember I told you I was taking part in a competition sponsored by Homecrafts. Well, here’s what I made:
Everyone taking part was sent the same yarns, none had ball bands so a bit of guess work was needed in calculating if I’d have enough to make what I planned. As most of the yarns were acrylic, it seemed sensible to go for something which could be used out doors and so, after watching the teen paint our garden bench in this stunning black and red combo I got to work and came up with a few pretty things to use out in the garden:
First of all a cushion
Next, this lovely star bunting which hang in the trees and fascinates our neighbour’s cat!
Finally, this table runner with a colourful fringe to brighten up outdoor dining.
The pattern for the star used in the bunting is from Craftseller Issue 13, I’m really tempted to make a version in red, white and blue to celebrate GB’s success in the Olympics!
