First project - bunting!
Ok, I finally have a reason for blogging. For my birthday, my lovely Mum and Dad got me my own sewing machine :)
Last week, I also did my first bit of sewing and made some bunting. My Mum has a big box from of Laura Ashley offcuts from the 70s, which was perfect! How gorgeous is this material!!
My Mum had even cut all the triangles of fabric out ready (I'd been at work).
Once the triangles had been sewn...
It was just a case of ironing them and sewing them to the bias binding and I had some lovely bunting to hang in my home!
Not too bad for a first attempt! My Mum found a great tutorial for us to use - I'll post the link when I find it!
