Blogmas Day 7 - Christmas Tree Bunting Tutorial

Hello, My son is still off school so it has been another day catching up on jobs.  I spent most of the morning doing housework and website updates. An online chat with Go Daddy took ages and didn't make much progress.

I have not got much crocheting or crafting progress for you today. Mam reminded me we have a free pattern for Christmas tree bunting that we made last year so I thought I would share.
