The Bunting Swap

Creativity and Community(linking in with this creative community)


A couple more bunts for the bunting swap. These are making their way to the UK and the USA.
I wanted to send my international bunting swappers a little piece of Australia so I've used a thrifted  linen teatowel featuring Australian Wildflowers.


And just in case Australian Wildflowers aren't everyones 'cup of tea'...the red/white spots on the back might be:)

Lucky me received this gorgeous crocheted bunt in my mailbox this week. It's made by this clever clogs. Not being able to crochet(yet..) I was secretly hoping for one. Happy me! Oh I love this swap so much!

Ooooo I love your bunting - Australian natives are my favorite flowers! And funny, I had same thought about the bunting I am making, but mine are wattle fabric:) Cyndy

I love that idea of sending a little bit of Australia overseas and the red polka dots on the back are to die for. I'm so glad you liked my little bunting baby, I'm loving this bunting swap coming across so many new wonderful blogs to read. xx
