Crochet Christmas Bunting Pattern With Santa, Reindeer And An Elf!

While working on my Christmas decorations/mats over the last few weeks I have been thinking about making some into bunting. I could have used these previous Santa decoration/mat, Elf decoration/mat, and Reindeer decoration/mat patterns that I had already completed to make some but I wanted to do some that were slightly different as I had an idea in mind to have the hats as the flat top edges rather than having the hats at the point!.
