Never a dull bike around


Hello, I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!

This is the colour palette I had to use for yet another pair of skirt guards. But not only skirt guards, also for a basket liner and a little pillow for on the back of the bike.

So here they are. The basket liner was made of dark brown cotton fabric, where I sewed a crocheted border on. The skirt guards are rather the same as always. It was actually the pillow, which gave me the most trouble. It was very difficult to make a panel which covered the top. I’ve tried and frogged, but in the end I made a panel of 3 squares, joined them and crocheted a border around. Now it fitted.

You can’t see it, but on the bottom of the pillow, I made 2 pairs of straps with Velcro, so it’s easy to attach on the back carrier.

 

Groetjes, Dorien

Hi Dorien! How great to hear from you! That is so beatiful set! Is that basket for the basket on the bike? Perfect idea to make the whole set with that lovely skirt! Hapy weekend! x Teje

Wat een leuk idee, het kussentje voor achter op de fiets.
Mooie kleuren!

I was just wondering if you could incorporate your bike skirt design into a poncho just continuing the pattern?
