WELL...... I have since finished sewing all the pennants and embellished the applique letters with pink embroidery floss in a simple running stitch......
Once done came the decision on bias tape to make the string for the bunting. I popped onto eBay as there are some brilliant little fabric suppliers on there. I found the perfect thing called Molly from Favourite Fabrics.......... BUT...it was out of stock!
Disheartened, I just switched off for a few days, I would never find anything else as perfect, it matched one of the fairies dresses just so!
It nibbled away at the back of my mind and I gave in and decided that I would choose something else.
I popped back on eBay and whilst I was skimming about, couldn't help but look at my hearts desire once more............ and what do I discover to my complete delight?
Yes.....it was back in stock!
So I ordered it, it arrived, I cut 3 metres, placed my central pennant and worked outwards from there leaving about 7cm between each one. Pinned it all in place and whizzed it through the machine.
** At this point, I have to share that I dislike referring to my trusty side-kick as 'the machine', so I am contemplating a name and I am leaning towards a female name...but I digress!**
Bunting is now complete!
Want to see my finished bunting?
I am SO idiotically chuffed with this, really, it's silly, but I'm sure you get a bit dizzy with your successes sometimes.....ready.... Ta-daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHH!!
