I am sooooooo addicted to Pinterest, I could spend hours and hours just looking at everything. I happened across this granny triangle bunting and fell in love, how great would that be on my porch?!? I found these instructions for making the granny triangle and started crocheting on Wednesday. I didn’t do the final row of picot stitches.
I used acrylic yarn because it’s going to be outside in the elements and acrylic yarn is almost indestructible. My triangles needed to be blocked, acrylic yarn is blocked with steam, um the steam doesn’t work on my iron. I know I’ll just spray a press cloth and put it on top of the yarn and iron, sending steam through the triangles. FYI, to get steam your iron is going to be hot enough to melt the yarn.Good news, they only melted a little and they look a lot better. Really the only way to tell they’re melted is to look closely. I chained all my triangles together and was kind of meh about the bunting. I’ve been working on tassels this afternoon. They really aren’t as time consuming as they sound, I was doing other things too, like entertaining a fussy baby. Sewing the tassels on really made a big difference for me. I am really loving how this bunting came out, I might have to make some more. It looks nice over the window, really dresses up the blinds and adds some fun color to a blah room (no, we still haven’t painted). I want to make rainbow ones next.
Have a super crafty weekend!
