The Royal Wedding - an excuse for a day off work, an excuse for having too much to drink or an excuse to make bunting? Yes!! I just love bunting and although I had not planned to celebrate the Royal Wedding I realised it was an excuse to indulge myself - and make bunting!!
Off to The Fat Quarters where I bought just three 20cm strips of fabric, a red and white spot, a white and blue spot and a blue with a ditsy white print. I found a piece of blue stripe fabric in my stash and when it was all assembled I was able to make 10 metres of bunting all for about £6.20.
Unfortunately it started to rain so the bunting had to come inside but provided a fitting back drop for Kate Moss and Big Ben when they set off for a Best of British school party.
I finished off the little jacket I made with these buttons ...
I have been knitting with the lovely Adriafil yarn I bought from Louise at Woolfish last weekend. It is 50% wool and 50% cotton and so soft. I do like variegated wool as I am always wanting to know what colour comes next.
Happy quilting xx
