Follow-up Friday – “Rose Party Triangles”

maRRose - CCC - Rose Triangle for bunting-19A few weeks ago someone in the CraftKitchen-organization got married, and of course we – the CraftKitchen blogger team – wanted to give him and his lovely wife-to-be a present, preferable a personal/handmade one.

Being the crafty people that we are, we came up with the idea of making a festive wedding garland.

Plus: it was so much fun to make something this pretty, as a team! It goes to show that you can achieve a lot in a relatively short time when you work together: I absolutely love my CraftKitchen buddies!

Should you want to give this a go yourself, I’ve tried to track down as many details on the garland’s motifs as I could:
Liza created her own granny square heart pattern (link to chart here), Lidy crocheted her flags from a crochet snowflake book, Lisanne followed her own “wallhanger” design (pattern comes as a bonus when you buy her book), and Janneke adapted her own “Lente Granny Square” (free pattern for the squares here; it’s in Dutch, but has clear step-by-step photos, so you lovely non-Dutch should be ok with it as well, you need to click on “werkbeschrijving” for the tutorial).

  • Wat een prachtige slinger hebben jullie samen gemaakt! En wat een prachtig “vlaggetje” ( klinkt wat oneerbiedig voor dit mooie ontwerp hihi ) heb jij gemaakt! En in kleur is hij ook om van te watertanden ! Dit patroontje gaat mee op vakantie… je hebt nooit genoeg slingers toch ? ?

    • Dankjewel, lieve Mir! Het was echt zo ontzettend leuk om dit samen (nota bene op afstand) te doen. En Lidy heeft ‘m natuurlijk op de haar bekende fantastische wijze in elkaar gezet (die leren labels: zó tof), en samen met jou prachtig op de foto gekregen: echt een gezamenlijk project! Dank voor je compliment voor mijn vlaggetje: leuk dat je ‘m gaat maken – erg benieuwd naar jouw versie! Liefs, Mar xx

  • Wat prachtig! Echt superleuk, die ga ik bewaren voor als een van mijn broers of zussen gaat trouwen. Of nee, ik ga m gewoon maken, dan heb ik de slinger al voor als het zover is ? Dank voor het delen van het patroon Marianne ? liefs, Leen
