bec makes bunting....

I had a Very successful sewing day today. I finished making a string of bunting out of some gorgeous vintage fabrics AND I tidied up my sewing room so I actually want to work in there again.

I had a lot of fun taking photos of my sewing room to share with you and I also had the chance to get out into the garden and take a photo of an ant, and a daisy...

Zavian had a solid two hour nap this afternoon so It made it nice and easy to get on with it, I even vacuumed the floor - AMAZING!

Here is my delicious stack of flags ready to go.  My flags are quite large, about 8 inches wide by 10 inches long.
This is the finished bunting! I am so happy with how it looks. Now I need to figure out where to hang them. We are renting so I can't put nails in the walls. I tried a cheeky thumbtack but it didn't stick. There are only 7 flags in this string and I have a huge stack left over ready to make more. YAY!

I chose a grey bias binding to string the bunting together...

I have chosen a similar colour combination for this baby quilt that I am making for my etsy shop

I will finish the green spring inspired blanket the same as these baby blankets I have already listed for sale...

I back them with a super snuggly 100% cotton blanketing that is so very soft.

And then I sew on my label - that I am very proud of. I have been sewing it on to EVERYTHING that I make. Ha ha I'm sure that I will get over that soon.

I might have to make some bunting for my etsy shop too, but I am giving this one to my little... I haven't sewn a label on to these... yet.
Now I have this delicious pile of sewing to finish... What to do next? My favourite dilemma...

I think that I have gone on long enough BUT Just a few things that I am thinking about...

COMING SOON!! TUTORIALS BY ME!!  I'm thinking - make your own bunting and maybe - pimp your ironing board....  Whatcha reckon?

Anywho, take care, speak soon xox bec
