It has become a little tradition to make some handmade decorations for friends and family to give as presents at Christmas. You can see previous years' creations here and here. This year I was in a colourful mood and I thought my stash of Rico Creative Cotton yarn leftover from my bunting would be perfect for the job.
The pattern for the bauble decoration can be found here on Attic 24 (of course!) I decided not to put the little bead or bell details on as I prefer them quite simple.
here a lovely little Etsy shop called ATERGCrochet. You can purchase and download the PDF pattern for just a few pounds. I made two identical stars and then joined them together by single crocheting around the edges then adding a little toy stuffing in between. To finish off the stars I added a little button. (everything looks better with a button!).
