Who else loves a bit of Mini Festive Bunting at Christmas? I wanted to create a little festive cheer for these shelves in my daughters room and Mini Bunting popped right into my head. So I headed to my yarn stash, picked out a few colours and got to work! It’s super quick and easy to make but looks really effective. What do you think? If you want to give it a go yourself, I have written the instruction below for you and I also have a left and right handed tutorial for this who prefer to follow along at the end of the post.
