Bunting heaven!















Okay.
I'm putting it out there.
I am a little bit obsessed with bunting.
I kinda collect it.
I have garden bunting, sailing bunting,
vintage bunting from the 40's, bunting for Max's room,
union jack bunting etc etc etc.
I have never actually made it though - until today.
My lovely friend Melissa has just had a baby and named it Matilda.
So I thought I would give this little idea of personalised bunting a go.
First I cut out the letters and glued them in place on my fabric triangles.






















Then I stitched around them in bright red thread.
I backed my bunting with random fabric in florals, sail boats & letters.
To finish I threaded my triangles onto vintage french ribbon picked up
from a stall in Portobello Rd.




I hope Melissa likes her gift.
And I hope she doesn't read this blog before I've had a chance to give it to her!

  2. I completely adore my gift! I believe I squealed with delight when I opened it. And again when I realised that it had Matilda's name on it - I'd only been looking at the back! The bunting will hang so beautifully over Matilda's cot. All I need now is to commission one to go over Rosie's bed. Are you open to commissions, Jo?
