Advent Bunting


I hope you are all having a lovely week!  I wanted to post before now, but I've been so busy working on Christmas presents and finishing up the final details on my Advent swap package, that I haven't had the time to stop and write.  I've been doing a lot of sewing mostly, but I have done a little bit of crochet that I wanted to talk about today. 

Back in the springtime when I found the Attic24 blog, I seen Lucy's adorable Advent bunting and knew immediately that I had to make one for my own room this year.  Counting down the days till Christmas is one of my favourite things to do, and this is such a cute way to do it.  I'm using Knit Picks Dishie cotton for my stars and I only have three done so far, but I think that are super cute!!  They work up in a snap too which is great.  I can sneak one or two into little spaces I find during my day when I can't work on bigger projects.  I like watching the colours come together and seeing how each star turns out unique and beautiful.  If you'd like to give them a try yourself, you can find the star pattern here and the how-to for Lucy's bunting here. 

On a side note, yesterday while in the city doing some shopping, I made a trip to Zellers to pick out some really pretty colours for a big project I'm going to start soon!!  I'm beyond excited about it and can hardly wait to share it with you, but I need to get some pictures first.  Since it's a dreary day here today I will have to wait a bit longer before I show you, but believe me, it's going to be so much fun!!  Anyhoo, have a wonderful day!!



  1. cute idea! What a colourful way to decorate your room :)

  2. Thanks Jill, I thought it would be :)

  3. Awesome! I wish I could crochet. Those stars would be awesome on the Christmas tree! Maybe once the holidays are over, I can try to learn again.
