Our best selling items in CrochetCabinetCrafts are garlands. Today I decided to check which buntings are our bestsellers. So, customers mostly like and buy our Flowers garland – it sold 11 times. The next is Daisy garland – it has eight sales, then Sunflowers bunting – seven sales, and red Poppy bunting sold six times.
Two sales each have a Pumpkin garland and yellow Daffodils bunting, and white Daffodils garland has only one sale.
I have so many orders, that’s why there is no way to create something new for the shop. Still, I am trying very hard and here is the result of my trials – I will be knitting a modern dahlia garland. Different variations in the shape of the petals are possible – some will be round, others slightly oblong; some will have the middle filled in, others will be empty. And, of course, the colours will be different, based on the threads I have available. It’s all thanks to Tatiana Litke, whose video tutorial I used to make my dahlias.
It’s the highest time to start making garland for Halloween. A Pumpkin garland has long been in my plans but only now I’ve just managed to start crocheting it. As a rule, I firstly test each new project on a plain yarn from my scraps and only after writing down the pattern I start making it on a suitable yarn. This time I choose the base for my project from one of my favourite designer – Anabelia, whose pumpkin-shaped coasters charmed me:
Of course, I had to adjust the number of different stitches to the thickness of my yarn and the hook. So the first attempt is in the picture, as well as the yarn I ordered for this project. I promise to show you the garland making process as soon as it’s possible.
I finally finished it – a garland of white daffodils. It will be listed in the CrochetCabinetCrafts this evening and for now, you can admire it here. The bunting consists of 9 3D white flowers with a yellow centre each and can be a reminder of the beautiful spring that is now giving way to summer. There will be new garlands in my shop in the summer. I won’t say what it will be, but I can hint to you that I have an idea for one garland in green and another in orange. Have you guessed yet?
Finally, my daffodil garland is ready. The season for these flowers is already ending, although they are still blooming in my small garden. It was my yellow daffodils with a dark yellow centre that was my inspiration for making this garland. I love these flowers for their fragility, delicacy, smell and for the fact that they are a symbol of spring, just like tulips, of course. But crochet tulips and connecting them into a garland is quite difficult, although I can’t stop thinking about it and quite possibly I’ll figure out how to do it better. But while I’m working the details out, the daffodils are taking over.
And this is how the garland looks hanging on the wall.
I’ve devoted a lot of time to create this beautiful spring flower – the daffodil. It is going to be my new garland, not typical because without leaves, crochet only with flowers. I’ve crocheted only one flower as far and am going to create the new bunting this weekend because we have Monday free of work and celebrate Constitution Day. Unfortunately, the weather forecast says that there will be a cold and rainy weekend, so I plan to spend more time with my crocheting.
I crocheted this garland to express my support to all those who are different from most people in my country and are discriminated against for various reasons. The rainbow has always been a symbol of joy and happiness, let’s enjoy it together.
It takes me lots of time to finish new poppies garland, but it is finally ready. It made up of 9 red poppies and 8 green leaves with string, crocheted from 100% mercerized cotton yarn. the garland is perfect fo home decoration all year round.
All the garland is 170 cm (67 inches) long, each poppy is 7,5 cm (3 inches) in diameter and the leaf is 7,5 cm (3 inches) long.
New bunting appears at our shop and this time it was created from Sunflowers. These flowers are slightly modernist, but they still are yellow with a brown centre. I dare say that it was a pleasure to crochet them and now I look at these sunny and bright flowers with the same pleasure. I think they can decorate every house and bring joy to it. There is a mall sun in each of these flowers and it can shine for you both during rainy autumn and cold winter.
