Star bunting pattern :)

So I used drops Paris, and a size 5 hook, you don’t need a massive amount of yarn, so it’s a great yarn busting pattern, and they don’t take especially long either ๐Ÿ™‚ so a great Begginners project ๐Ÿ™‚ pop over to my facebook page for a chance to win some of your own ๐Ÿ™‚

Look at all that wool…. I’ve been making lots of interesting things for the run up to the make do and mend fair at the Ageas bowl on the 5th October so I’ve not posted on here for a while, sorry about that ๐Ÿ™‚
