I mentioned a while ago that I treated myself to a very nice sewing machine when I closed the shop (18 months ago, can you believe it!) I'm sure you will smile when I admit to buying many small pretty fabric pieces to use on my sewing projects but I'm saving them for something special!!

Well I decided to make some bunting for mum and dads anniversary, as a first project it went pretty well. Over several evenings I cut a few triangles, pinned them and couldn't wait to sew my first piece.

The fabric came from a scrap pack of off cuts I picked up on my travels. The pieces were random patterns but colour coordinated nicely.

Not sure whether the bunting would be used inside or out I left gaps so it could be looped over nails or tied easily over a banister.

I made paper flower templates then used the templates to cut out felt flowers and used them to personalise the bunting.

The stamps and pretty buttons can be purchased from

Can you believe I forgot to take a photo of the finished bunting!

Next time I visit I'll take a photo it looked lovely draped down the stairs and before the day was over there were several requests for Christmas bunting!


  1. Hi Nina, didn't get to say cheerio to you when you were at Christina's, sorry!! Thanks again for my sweeties.
    Love your bunting. Colours are gorgeous. Great idea making a template with a flower stamp, must try that idea. x

  2. Fabulous bunting. Love the way you used a stamp set as the template for the pretty felt flowers. The buttons are the perfect finishing touch!
