Making a new bike beautiful!

The next best thing to riding your bike is decorating it... It took a while to decide on colours but I love the end result! 

I made two skirtguards attached with a combination of cable ties and micro-binder clips.. The pattern can be found at Ravelry and is pretty easy to follow! 

Then I attached a foxy bag I bought off eBay by cable-tying through the strap hoops and around the handlebars! DIY handlebar bag success! Perfect for my tissues and portable stereo! 

Then my Witch went in her pride of place as bike mascot.. This is her third bike so far and she has braved all weather conditions quite well! 

I added cherry spoke decorations that J-bot (the kindly Lass) found for me on her trip to Japan.

And then as crocheted heart on the back basket, feathers (gang insignia) and red fairylights (battery-powered).  

Looking beautiful! 

Now back to riding to more adventures!!
