Vintage Style Wedding Bunting Success

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

Teacup Pincushion

Anyone who knows me well, knows I love a bargain and can’t resist a snoop around a charity/junk shop.  I have been on the look out for a china tea cup to make into a pin cushion – I know its quirky, but hey!  Anyway, guess what I found this morning, a Royal Albert Bone China teacup dated 1934 …. its perfect.

It caught my eye as the decoration on the teacup looked like cross-stitch and you know what, I was right as the design is printed on the bottom – Petit Point China?  It was an absolute bargain and not only that, there were two of them!

Now I just have to find the time to make them into pin cushions and ditch the ugly plastic and foam one that I am currently using.
