Bunting with a twist

I have finally given in....its everywhere......bunting is taking over the UK at the moment!  So, in a desperate attempt to use up some of my fabric stash I decided to have  a go at making some.

First I made a card template (digging deep in the recycling bin to find some nice thin card) and then cut up LOTS of fabric.  I sewed them together and added some ribbon to string them all together.  It took about 4 hours to make.....but I admit I am not a quick machinist!

I used red and black skull fabric, 2 tone black and white and cherry fabric.....not your usual type of bunting but it sums me up quite well.  I sprayed it with scotchguard so hopefully that will help it stay a bit clean (though with all this wet weather I must admit that I have brought it back inside for the time being!).  

I had them strung around our veranda (did you spy my mini totem pole?) I just need a party to show them off!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend (and not too wet!!) whatever you have planned.

  1. That is rather cool bunting you have made there. Hurrah for bunting! I have some which LLJ sent me in my crafting room. It does make me smile!

  2. Bunting is so popular now. Good job on yours!
