Welcome to Boys & Bunting

The boys from Boys & Bunting would like to wish you all a
VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 
We hope that 2016 brings you a year of colour, craft and creativity!
Along with the ticking over of the new year, we are jumping with full force into our brand new website.
We've been working awfully hard over the last couple of months to get everything spic and span as we awaited your arrival. If you're into crafting as much as we are, we think that you are going to love what we've come up with!
Boys & Bunting began about 6 months ago with the concept of the two of us (Dennis and Matt) joining together to create a space that combined all of the things that we love: Interaction with fellow crafters, informative tutorials and patterns, regular blog posts and all of that in a fun and light hearted environment.
We hope that boysandbunting.com is the kind of place you will want to stop by and visit often, with a hot cup of tea and a plate of cookies as you browse over our colourful pages. We also hope that we can create a space that is a little more personal, a space where you can get to know the real us and put a face to the names.


Blood, sweat and tears have gone into the making of Boys & Bunting, but it's definitely been worth the hard work.
We are especially proud of our brand spanking new CROCHET LIBRARY, a useful resource for the "newbie" crocheter, as well as old time "hookers".
It contains tons of handy video tutorials, plus lots of tips and tricks that will surely bring out your inner crochet star.
The Crochet Library will be a constant work in progress and will frequently be updated with new techniques and exciting (and ever so fancy) stitches.
Entrance to the Crochet Library is free and we're open 24/7, just remember to bring your Library books back on time!


Being the modern boys that we are, we can also be found on these rather clever social media platforms. So why not follow us to get all of the latest Boys & Bunting insights.


This is just the beginning of what we hope will not only be a successful collaboration, but also a superbly smashing year for all of us!

  8. Hi Matt & Dennis! So glad the new blog is finally here, I'm another one who has been missing According to Matt. Your blog was always my 'happy place' to visit. Beautiful photography and the perfect chatty tone. Looks like you're on to another winner with this one! So happy you & Dennis are together, how lucky you are to be working on such a sunny project together. All the best, Nadine xx
