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!
