Three Cheers

Three cheers for the red, white and blue…

To celebrate the 4th of July, I made a couple of crocheted buntings.

4th of July Bunting

This one wasn’t intended to be a bunting/banner. After I made the first one, I had some yarn left-over and made a star. Then I made that star into a circle. Then I made that circle into a somewhat looking triangle…Then thought, “This would make a cute bunting!”

This one is a simple crocheted triangle and you can find directions here.

I added little streamers and two stars to the ends and another streamer to the center.

The first one I made, we hung on the front stoop (find a triangle pattern here.  The triangle I used comes from:  Leisure Arts-99 Granny Squares to Crochet),

then we decided to have some work done on the house by having some siding replaced, bushes removed, replace the backyard fence and have the house painted,

and haven’t put it back up.

I am not so sure I want to make holes in the newly painted wood after they patched up all the holes before they painted.

I’ll save them for next year.
