There is something about those little flag banners that sucks me in, I am entranced by them. Maybe its the colour, maybe it’s the festive feeling, either way I have been inspired to create some for the kiddies bedrooms. Just before Christmas when the holiday decorations went on sale I was browsing the aisles at my favourite craft store and I saw a kit for a Merry Christmas bunting, for less than $4.00, SCORE. I brought it home and went to work creating a holiday bunting, like most things I had to add my touch so I swapped out some of the felt it came with and substituted other colours. I also thought that sticking the letters on with glue was tacky (get it…I know its so bad) so I sewed them on to add another layer of texture. Once I knew that this little project was a success, I went back to the craft store and bought all of the kits they had, and even suckered my friend to buy one for herself. Crafting peer pressure. I switched the felt using some of what came with the kits and substituting the colours that would work better in the kiddies rooms, I also upgraded the ribbon from white to something with a little more character. I think that they came out pretty good, for less than $10.00 each. The pictures don’t really do them justice because they are all quite long.
Happy sewing, cutting, and crafting.
