I made some bunting this morning as a present for a little girl’s birthday party. It was a bit of a rushed job but I made it in time (just). It reminded me that I’ve made a couple of other strings of bunting that have never appeared here. I like making bunting: often unexpected colours and patterns look good together, I like adding letters and stringing it together into something jolly and celebratory. I also like that I can reuse all sorts of material for the flags: these ones include pieces from a little girl’s dress; napkins; a cot sheet; a skirt of mine; shirts; pyjamas and a pair of jeans.The one I made today (there’s actually an ‘O’ on the third flag in, a bit hard to see but too late to change.)Lovely colours for a little boy (above) and my ‘Christmas’ bunting that hangs permanently on our stairs.A big thanks goes to Kate who made beautiful bunting for D and K and is my inspiration for all of these!
I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. View all posts by Amy
