Time For Something Summery: Crochet Granny Stitch Triangle Ladybird Bunting Pattern

I’ve had crochet bunting on my ideas lists for a while now but haven’t had the chance to get started with any – the list os just too long!.

After seeing some ladybirds scurrying about on some leaves and an idea came to mind to make some ladybird themed bunting.

I decided to do the bunting in the colour of the leaves and have some little ladybirds sat on them.
