Pretty Bows

The pattern for these pretty bows has now been released, it’s published in issue 21 of Craftseller mag, which is on sale now. I’ve also got a pattern in there for some cute little boot toppers.

These bows are fab – you can wear them as brooches, pin them to your bag, sew them to a hairband or clip. Use them to add a bit of frivolity to a spring time gift wrapping. I am thinking I might make some to hang as bunting in the bedroom of a little girl I know. The possibilities are endless!

When I submitted the design back in January I chose yellow to cheer me up on a dreary winter day, now the sun is shining and this yellow reminds me of the daffodils that will soon be filling my garden with colour.

As with all my Craftseller designs, you have permission to sell items you make from this pattern. If you do sell any of my Craftseller designs at Craft Fairs or online I’d love to see a photo!

  1. I thought the bows were very pretty in the magazine Tracey – they look even lovelier here. I must learn to crochet!


  2. Bowtiful Tracey! Such a springy colour – brightens anyone’s day!

#goingdigital #allthegearnoidea #ihavethisthingwithwindows #ellesmereport #slowliving Remembering our family outing to Beeston Castle last week and how it only seems like yesterday that  my heart would beat faster when my little girl (now in her 20's) would run full pelt over that bridge & down into the woods! Just dropped ff some advent garlands for @ditzyrosemakes , swipe for more examples of new stock. For crocheters, I'll be sharing the patterns on www, over the next few weeks.

I know the tv adverts are hurtling towards a Christmas shopping extraveganza, but  for me, this month is about admiring the colours, kicking up leaves & marvelling at the beauty of nature.
