I’ve decided that I’m going to whip up a large batch of buntings in various sizes and colors/patterns. They are very popular now as decorations for kids rooms, play rooms, houses, parties, beach huts, store windows, birthdays, new babies – really anywhere! And as they are fabric, they’ll last and can be used again.
I have only limited fabrics at home, so I used the fabrics which I already own to create these three. I hope to get some polka dots, stripes and flowers asap. Perhaps a range of Cath Kidson would be fun too! Plus I’ll need more binding tape or ribbon. The ones I used for these three were picked up in Cromer. One is much softer and better quality at 60 P per yard. The other is 3 yards for 99 P. I’m going to have a look online as I’m sure I could find it sooo much cheaper at Jaycotts, etc.
I’ve put these banners up on Folksy.com and started a Facebook Page – Feel free to “LIKE” it.
Here are some other buntings, I’ve seen online – some I like more than others, but you get the gist of how they are used in the home, garden, camper, etc.

I’m saving for an Olfa Quilt Making kit which includes a self-healing mat, ruler and rotary cutter which will make the hardest part – fabric cutting so much easier and faster! It’s about £29 pounds in UK and $49 in the US but it’s different there – second cutter but no ruler.
