If you mix together....

....two different tutorials, what will happen as a result? You'll discover it in few seconds!!

Thanks to Jacquie at Bunny Mummy, I've learned to crochet some sunburst granny hearts (here)....!!!
I made even some yarn dolls (a group of five!) following my tutorial (here)....!!!
What happened next?
I started to line up the hearts first


and then I added the yarn dolls!!!


From my drawer full of ribbons, I cut out a couple of meters from my jute ribbon reel and I started to make it pass trough each heart, alternating a knotted yarn doll...

One knot and one bow for the ladies


and a double knot for each boy, instead!


I've alternated a boy with a girl...


...and this is the outcome...TA-DAH...!!!! A Yarn dolls & granny hearts bunting!!!!



...Some more detailed pics....



I love it!!! It's so colourful and eye-catching...!!!! Maybe I'll do some more...even because this is an easy and quick project!!!



Even this week I'll join Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday ! Come with me!!!

See you soon, xxxxx

  4. What a joyous garland! I remember those yarn dollies from when I was a little one. My aunt made them for us!

    Thanks for the memories Alessandra, and I hope you're having a lovely Italian vacation! Be safe.

  8. Wow, I haven't seen these little men in years! I used to always be making them, along with Pom poms, alas that is where my woolly crafty ways end! I literally have 2 left hands, one day I may make my very own granny square! Ada :)
