The Bunting Swap

I am thrilled to be participating in The Bunting Swap which has been organised by the lovely and clever Rach. You can see some of the beautiful things she sews here and you can read all about the bunting swap here.

I LOVE bunting. We have a small collection of bunting at our place-is there such thing as too much bunting?
I don't think so!

Shabby bunting to brighten up my craft room. Made from thrifted sheets and doilies.

Pretty pink bunting belonging to Miss 9. I bought this one from a local crafter years ago and still love it.

Cute bunting made from Prints Charming fabrics by this beautiful girl for my littlest beautiful girl.

An easy peasy birthday bunting that I whipped up at the last minute for Ollie's recent lego themed birthday.
It's threaded onto some twine so I plan to add in some pink, orange and purple for a rainbow party down the track.

I've been happily stitching away, creating my bunting for the swap.
I won't show you until the recipients have received their bunting BUT today the postie delivered my first piece of 'bunt'.

Thank you so much Ruth. I love it and I love what you wrote on the card as well.
I really love the sentiment behind this swap.
I can't wait to have a quirky, mismatched bunting made from like minded, crafty souls around the world!
Just a lovely thought really.
