Outside our shop is string after string of amazing knitted and crocheted bunting, mostly made by our lovely customers!
I just wish all those who contributed could see the reaction on people’s faces as they see the bunting, the smiles and chatter about how lovely it looks, about how different each one is…….and then the sheer number of photographs that have been taken, we know these photos have gone all round the world!!
This is just a snapshot of this gorgeous bunting!!
However, this bunting has now been up for a whole year, and has been up through sun, wind, rain and even snow – so it really needs to be updated. This bunting will be taken down, washed and reused elsewhere near the shop to brighten up another area!
So……..This Year we are going to replace this bunting with 🌺 🌸🌻🌼 yes, you guessed it flowers!!
If you would like to take part, please could you knit or crochet flowers to add to our bunting. Large ones, small ones, any colour, any kind you like, ALL ARE WELCOME!
These flowers will be on display outside the shop, AND as an added bonus the display counts towards Leighton Buzzard’s entry for Anglia in Bloom 2017, both as a floral display and a community project!
i have added 2 free patterns into this site, 1 knitted, 1 crocheted, feel free to use these or any other patterns you would like.
Acrylic yarns tend to fare better in our English weather, Stylecraft Special dk is especially durable (available in the shop if you need any further supplies).
Let’s surprise the visitors to Leighton Buzzard, and especially those who take part in The Children’s Trail, as we have one of the things they are searching for outside the shop, obviously I can’t tell you which one as it would spoil the fun!
