Beautiful Bunting

I've never made bunting before, but it's everywhere, isn't it?  And the temptation to create your own lovely concoction of fluttering festiveness is hard to ignore.

Plus, when one's sister's sewing machine is broken, and the niblings need bunting, what is a loving aunt to do but take up scissors and thread with haste!

Well, in truth it's been a couple of months now since the request was made, the material purchased and the project embarked upon...but, well, it's winter, and the kiddies have not been venturing out in the cold to the cubby house (upon which this bunting is destined to flutter) to play for quite a while now.

But Spring doth approach and it was time to get my act into gear.  And so here we are now, with bunting made, and ready to be shipped in preparation for its unfurling on the first lovely day of spring!


I must confess this wasn't the easiest of projects for me...I think I need to lurk a bit more over at Tales of a Junkaholic and get some bunting making tips!  If anyone can make bunting it's the fabulous Artemis!


But I'm happy with how it's turned out, and hope I've managed to get the right balance between boy and girl prints to please both the nephew and the nieces!


Check the mail kids, it's finally on it's way :)


Lots of love, Aunty Jones :) xxx
