Rainbow Campervans

Not long now until Yarndale which of course is all things woolly.  Felt is woolly too but I’ve put down the knitting needles and crochet hook and picked up my sewing needle instead to make these little Campervan Decorations.

I thought you might like to have a go at making them too so I’ve made up some templates, taken some step by step photos and added written instructions to create a pattern which is now available on the website as an instant PDF download priced at £1.99.

You could make a whole herd of little campervans into a bunting string.  You could add the motif to bags or clothing (just make sure you use a colourfast fabric). You could fill them with lavender. You could use single ones as Christmas Tree decorations…..the possibilities are endless!

I hope you enjoy making them as much as I do!
