So I needed to change the bunting hanging on my fireplace from my Easter bunnies and I decided I wanted something very simple plus I wanted to use some lovely cotton so while the little ones attacked our craft table with playdoh I hooked up these beautiful little squares.
Yarn: Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK in Shrimp, White, Silver
Pattern: Simple Granny Square pattern
Blocking: I’ve also found a fondness for blocking and really like what it achieves with these little blocks. I simply pinned these blocks to some of my boys foam mats (luckily they didn’t notice) sprayed them with water (I used an old window cleaning spray bottle – how resourceful of me eh!) and left them overnight.
And the finished article… for such a simple project I think it looks quite stunning on my mantel piece.
And here’s how I did it:
And then you can say ta dah!
