Le Petit Bunting...

good morning!

ever since i've browsed other blogs,
just lurking in the shadows shyly...

i have been intrigued with bunting.
bright and beautiful,
shabby chic and dreamy...
tiny or not,
inside or wrapped around trees.

i was just wondering
i could make some too.

so i came up with this...

i happened to have some of this...

you may remember
i used these strips in a cushion last month.
they were originally strips that miss b had sewn together
and given to me.
then i used some in the 'love' cushions,
and i had about four strips left over.

i chopped them into these.
then chopped up some purple polycotton to back them with.

then i sewed some onto some aqua craft ribbon.
different lengths and patterns
that i joined together
and some got sewn onto a brown ribbon
that was lying around
in my box of tricks.

for a first go
i'm happy with them...

i'm not sure what to do with them though,

i might give them away...
next week
if i can figure out how!

thank God it's friday.
mr w is coming home for a long weekend,
miss b is coming home tomorrow too!

{i've had a pesky sore knee all week
and made myself a support bandage
out of light green knit ribbed stuff
that was lying around...hehehe
i wouldn't dare show you
for all the tea in china!}

though next week
i might thrill you
with a look at that seventies style pillowcase
i've been hiding from ya...
just so you can have a good laugh
at my expense!  lol

have a very merry weekend,
full of laughter and joy...

  1. Your bunting is adorable! I love that the flags are pieced together. Great color choices. The ribbon color is unexpected but an amazing complement to the flags.
