Today it is my turn to reveal the project I have designed as my contribution to the Stylecraft Blogstars Garden Party event. My design is for some delicate floral bunting that would make the perfect decoration for a summertime party or family get together. I think it would make a beautiful hand made decoration for a wedding reception or for a child's bedroom too. In fact, with so many shades of yarn to choose from in the Naturals Bamboo + Cotton range, I think it would be easy to find a colour combination to suit pretty much any event you might be celebrating or any room you fancy decorating!
Andy's amazing sister, Julie, was a huge bunting fan. Julie loved life and was the life and soul of any party, enjoying nothing more than a get together and a little boogie! Julie collected patterned papers and fabrics to make her own bunting and she loved organising decorations for any event, with bunting always taking centre stage! We lost Julie in January after an incredibly brave and courageous battle with cancer, so as soon as we started to discuss a garden party theme for a new Blogstars collection I knew immediately that I wanted to design some bunting with Julie in mind. A pretty, floral design that features sparkly silver beads and yarn in her favourite yellow shade was the obvious choice.
I really enjoyed designing and making this bunting with the help of my ace crocheter, Marina, and so I hope you will like it too! A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this pattern will be donated to Bowel Cancer UK.
The pattern is available as a paper brochure or as a download via Etsy and Ravelry. You can find more information by following this link to the Janie Crow web site.

If you follow me on Instagram then you may already know that I had a computer meltdown on Friday so was unable to send out my May newsletter. I am back up to speed with all my technology now, so, all being well, you can expect the newsletter to drop into your inbox this Friday, so do look out for it! I look forward to telling you all my other Janie Crow news then!
Hoping you have great day and thank you for all your amazing support...
