Right now I should be making a fruit platter for craft group (It’s healthy week this week) but I am just too excited to share my buntings with you. I was not sure if I was going to share them as I wanted it to be a surprise to all the wonderful people who recieve them but I just couldn’t resist showing you my little baby buntings. Plus I figure the few bunting swap participants who stop by still will not know if they are getting one or not hehe. I have absolutely loved participating in the Bunting Swap, I have had so much fun making my little buntings thinking about how they are going to go off on their own out into the big wide world and hopefully (fingers crossed) be loved by complete strangers from blog land and a few blog friends as well. The buntings that are on their way to me have started to arrive and I’m hopping mad with excited every time I open the letter box to discover a gorgeous little envelope from somewhere in the world containing a piece of bunting made with love for little old me. I can’t wait to put them altogether.
Onto my little bunting babies
I wanted to crochet some pretty buntings so I started off with my hook and my random colour selection method and produced 20 buntings
But I just didn’t feel that these by themselves were doing it for me and I decided they needed a little extra love so I decided to add some
embroidery of my name, now I have to say that after hand embroidering 20 buntings I was a little over this idea but I stilll love it and how pretty are they with all the beautiful colour, I can just imagine this strung up on someones porch or maybe even in their own little princess’ room. But they still weren’t complete they needed to come together so I
sewed them altogether and wella my little baby buntings were born and I have had to tear myself apart from them to pop them into envelopes and send them off, yes I am having slight separation anxiety from my baby buntings, I just hope that all the wonderful people that receive them look after my babies and love them as much as me. I have had so much fun making them, crocheting, embroidering and sewing them altogether. I can’t wait till I have all mine from over the world. This swap has been the best it’s been motivating and rewarding.
Well I better make that fruit platter 5 mins before everyone gets here.
enjoy the sunshine today
