a bunting tradition

Last year and the year before I made some bunting for my sister Gill's birthday, so I guess I'm moving towards making it a tradition. Today is her birthday, and this is a hurried photo of a quick make yesterday. A collection of security envelope paper patterns, and some fine linen thread makes for baby bunting - there are nineteen flags (she's a touch older than that, but my lips are sealed!) and each one is about thumb-nail size, so it's small.


Happy Birthday, Gill!

Absolutely lovely, is this the paper your father gave you not so long ago? Such a cute size, I'm wondering whether she'll be decorating the rabbit hutch!!! xox

What a brilliant idea, to use the insides of those envelopes - and as you show on the photograph, there are some nice patterns that work really well when all together!

Love it!
