A little help from an expert

As its Ramadan I decided to make a bunting for my living room. I wanted to crochet the word Ramadan but was a little daunted by the shaping involved with making letters. But thankfully Tamara Kelly at came to the rescue with her fabulous Alphabet patterns which are amazing . I have to recommend her site as it has some fantastic patterns and advice for newbie crocheters, knitters, embroiders and quilters. Her directions are quite clear and she has provided photos for every letter so you know how the end result should look. Alternately Stichnstacy has very kindly posted a whole set of video tutorials on youtube for crocheting alphabet letters in which she takes you step by step from start to beginning so no need to sweat the small stuff!!!.
Now here are some pictures of the finished bunting

I am really happy how the letters cam out and added a small flower and granny square as a bit of extra decoration.
Buntings like this are a great way to celebrate any occasion and rather than adding flowers and granny squares you could add an appropriate applique like a slice of cake for a birthday or a Daffodil for spring etc
