Sunshine through my window

25 Jun

After seeing so much bunting around for the Jubilee and helping to make the Palmertson Road bunting, I realised just how much I love it and thought about making some for myself. As we live in a rented property with dreary grey carpets and magnolia artex walls, a little bunting does wonders in brightening up an otherwise very average room.

So far I’ve made a small piece to hang in our front room window so it can give me a cheery greeting when I get home. I plan to go bunting crazy as Andy has stupidly given me free reign to ‘do what I want’.

I used a mix of pink cottons and corduroy to make my double sided flags and joined them all with a lovely polka dot cotton bias.

I have also been asked to make some wedding bunting for a lady so I am looking forward to going white and gold fabric shopping for that. Pop back soon for an update on my progress!xxx

    That is some very happy bunting! That is exciting about the wedding order too. If you need a shopping partner for that fabric you know where I am.

    Oooo be careful it’s totally addictive, my home has bunting at nearly every window! And even my bike has some on my basket!

    Now that’s bunting I could make with a glue gun. That’s about the extent of my “sewing” expertise.

      hehe. Glue guns are amazing though aren’t they?! They stick almost everything! 🙂 x
