I love making bunting as it is easy to make and always leaves me feeling happy. I know I am easily pleased!
I was asked to make some bunting in a vintage style, incorporating the colours ‘watermelon’ and ‘green apple’. Sometimes colour description like this can be tricky as we all have our own perception of shades of colour, but it looks like I got it right as I have received a lovely message of thanks this morning which has made my day!
They used the bunting around the ‘signing the register table’ as below.
As well as around the bar and down either side of the ballroom where the reception was held. I am just glad the bunting arrived safely in Canada for the wedding and that 60 metres was enough!
The lovely message I received said – Where do I begin!? Your bunting was absolutely stunning, it was the perfect addition and just the right touch for our decorations…it looked so beautiful and we had so many compliments on it. And there was so much, you must have been sewing all night for weeks on end! The colours were perfect and matched our vintage theme so well. I can’t wait to use it in a nursery one day! )
Thank you very much Chris and Claire and may I wish you a very happy future together x
This time of year always seems to start a playground debate on the subject of teacher gifts. Should there be a collection for one big gift and if so, what should it be? Or everyone trying to suss out what each are buying so as not to double up, which is easier said than done!
I have joined in this game, every year, but it recently occurred to me that it may be easier, as I can sew, to make a homemade gift.
So this week, I put together a lined zippered pouch in some nice linen and added some pretty twiddly bits, all in a butterfly theme for my daughter’s teacher.
I have been asked by many mum’s now, if I could make one up for their child’s teacher, so I am going to put teacher gifts on my list of products to make. Obviously not in time for this year, but please bear me in mind for next time!
