It is all about blue, white and red



Today I am sharing a quick sneak peek of my latest finished crochet project. A blue, red and white crochet bunting.

My oldest has turned 13 and it is all about blue, white and red. We are making a room make over on the theme which you would think has its inspiration from the States considering us being a Swedish - American family. But no no... For Nelly Bo the blue, white and red is all about London, the Union Jack and United Kingdom itself. I guess it has to do with famous You Tubers, pop singers and the fact that big cities are on a trend within interior design.

This weekend we will get to work with putting it in place. Did I mention that she loves it? Especially the tassels.

  1. It's fabulous! I love bunting, in any color so cheerful.(I have several throughout the house, and on the porch. lol) The best part, she loves it, that always makes a mothers day. I think I saw a crochet Union Jack pillow on Pinterest. A quick holiday gift maybe.

    1. Hi Angela
      Buntings are magical. So simple but yet they make a huge impact on their surroundings. I better look into that Union Jack pillow on Pinterest...

    1. Hi Sandra
      She sure has a great taste. She knows what she wants if I say so. The tassels were my idea and I think they are the cherry on the cake actually. Thanks for popping in.

  11. This is wonderful! I'm inspired to make some - we're a British-American family here in the UK, and this bunting will merge the two flags happily! Chrissie x
