New Buntings – Pillow Cases

Today I picked up a pair of pink flowered pillow cases for 50 pence at the Cromer Car Boot Sale and I whipped up these two flag buntings today with the hopes to add them to my existing collection of buntings I made.  I still have a pillow case left, so I might even made a matching throw pillow or keep it to mix in with another pattern when I get some more fabrics and push pins to hang properly.  I think this pattern could be cute with a pink gingham plaid or stripped combination.

The bias used was 99P and a satin type fabric – not the best quality but was the only thing the Wool Shop in Cromer had in the color pink.  As it was only 25mm width, I had to first iron it out flat and then re-fold in 1/2 so the edges are a bit rough. When I hung them with tape to take a photo, a bit frayed on the back when I pulled off the tape, so I will not add this to my collection “to be sold quality”, rather keep it and hang in the garden or Maebh’s room, playroom, etc.

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
