Catch Up and Baby Bunting

Since the discovery of Instagram I have felt less need to document my makes on here which was the purpose of creating this little blog all those years ago.  
I want to remedy that and intend to do a few little catch up posts to have a record of recent makes that didn’t make it onto the blogosphere.  
Please bear with me while I indulge my online record keeping.
My most recent completed project was a commission for two sets of baby bunting for two new arrivals.  This is the result.  
I have made a few sets of these now and they always come out a treat.  
The pennant pattern can be found here from Lucy's blog and the crochet letters are from a pattern here.  Using Sublime Baby Cashmerino and a 3mm hook they are a nice size. 
They do take such a long time to make with the crochet time and all the washing, blocking and pinning of all the little letters but I think it’s worth it.
I usually add a little embellishment to the front and end of the name, either a flower or a butterfly (pattern here), but for a boy I must admit I came up blank, any suggestions for simple clear boy motifs I could add if I make any more in the future? 
Back Soon

I love bunting and these are just adorable. I sew garlands and just like you I use butterflies for strings of 'girl' bunting but boys are sooo much harder. They might not grow up to like sport and dinosaurs are grown out of - I hope you have some luck thinking of an alternative xx

What a lovely idea to welcome a new baby. I am stumped for a boy motif idea, maybe a football for a football mad family or a teddybear?

How about a teddy bear or a duckling? Just trying to think of the things which used to be on the shaped baby caridgan buttons...

These are very cute! How about a star for a boy - they can be quite unisex.

Love you blog! And these bunting are so sweet. What about a little sailing boat for a boy?
