African Flower Crochet Bunting!

I've just finished my first ever length of crochet bunting!

I made the African Flower motifs without the white edging from this pattern:

I chose 2 shades of pink & 2 shades of green of Patons 4ply cotton yarn, and made 12 flowers, each using a different combination of the shades.

I've just crocheted them onto a long chain of peach cotton with a loop at each end and then pressed each flower. I love it!
