I have been quiet these last few days because I haven’t been feeling very well. Master got a cold the week before and I was really happy that I hadn’t caught it…that is until Friday. I started feeling poorly on Friday afternoon and by Saturday was so unwell I stayed in bed till 4pm (something which I haven’t done since I was a teenager, I think).
As you can imagine there hasn’t been much crafting around here because of that although I did manage to make some bunting for my stall at the pre-school’s Christmas Fayre. I love making bunting as it’s such a repetitive and mindless activity (I’m not sure what that says about me?!) and I’ve really enjoyed getting the Christmas fabrics out.
So far I’ve got four strings of bunting with seven flags each. I’m trying to keep all prices below £10 as I noticed last year that that was the spending limit for most people for one single item.
I’d like to apologise for the bad quality pictures. It’s a really grey and horrible day here today. Would you believe this wall had the most light in all of the house?
Enough rambling, though, here’s the bunting:
This bunting is traditional with the green wool felt holly leaves and red holly berries which are actually red buttons. I’ve had this fabric for a few years and am really glad it’s finally been used.
I love this bunting and am secretly hoping it won’t sell so I can keep it. The colourful fabric is called Christmas Celebration Twinkle 13 and is by Freedom Fabrics. I love that it isn’t christmassy but still has all the Christmas colours in it.
The rose bunting has, as the name suggests, some red roses on the maroon flags.
I used a smallish scrap of Christmas fabric in this red and white bunting which I’ve had for about 20 years. It has little green holly leaves and gold bows on it and I really like it. I still have a small piece left and I’m not quite sure what I’m going to make with it but I’m sure I’ll think of something in the next 20 years.
