Christmas Bunting – Christmas pudding, Ice Cream and Gingerbread hearts

What a blast I am having with crochet. I just can’t get enough! And it turns out that the more you do something, the more ideas you have for more of this something!

I’ve played around with crocheting some Bunting,Β  and I love it! I love the amount of detail it provides, yet repetitive patterns keep it all nice and uniform. What’s not to love!

And now that Christmas is just around the corner, it is on my mind A LOT. And what’s on my mind is usually reflected in my crochet. πŸ™‚ (That explains all the Ice Creams and Doughnuts!)

image

This is how I start. I have an idea and I make a lot of unfinished parts. There is the benefit of specialisation, but since I don’t know what end result looks like, it could be a win or a fail. In fact, I have a few started projects that never got completely finished,Β  because the picture in my head did not match the reality… that’s the issue with crochet… It is very slow…

But the more I practice, the more I am able to see how yarn will behave. I love that!

Here is that finished little pudding!

image

And even cuter as a bundle!

image

And even cuter on a plate!

image

You are so cute, I want to eat you!!!

image

Christmas bunting, so cute! I love Bunting,Β  and garlands, and Christmas and food! Put it together into Christmas pudding Bunting!

I’ve made some other ones a while ago, too.

And Gingerbread hearts…

Last year, my Product Design class, consisting of our beloved graduates have pulled our brains and resources together and created this master piece. Needless to say how proud I am of them! Effort + good project = memorable results! Our class wasn’t that big last year, but we managed to work in several groups, each coming up with, designing and executing a part of the overall installation.

image

Fireplace was the focal point, around which everything else was added. Girls made it out of a polystyrene boards.

It was decorated with some festive hand-embroidered stocking.

image

The clay Bunting is also hand – made. You can find it in my earlier posts.

image

On the mantle we have some pine cones and twinkle lights decorated with felt houses.

image

Above the fireplace is a beautiful pine cone wreath. My students surprised me again! This particular project I didn’t see until installation date, but loved it once it came!

image

image

Next to the wreath is cone bunting.  My students’ own design.  Amazing what they can come up with!

There were a few other bits and bobs that were added by everyone, creating a memorable piece that maybe will inspire others to get crafty this season!

Well done, my darlings! Thank you for your effort, creativity, patience and hours of laughter!
