Fabric bunting update...



From the sounds of it, quite a few people have never heard of fabric bunting before (mentioned in my recent 'makings' post), so here is a sneak peak at some of the finished bunting.

It's super quick and easy to make and a great way to use up scrap fabric and recycle items rather than buying plastic deocrations for gatherings/parties etc. I can totally imagine a garden or room full of white or light pink buting (recycled sheets?) for a beautiful outdoor function.

I think I got a bit too carried away cutting out triangles with the pinking shears though... so much so that there may be bunting in the shop soon!

I'm off to iron my bunting with my hair straightener...
