Today I have to show you my Sarah Smith bunting, totally copied from Emma at LavenderHouse.
I am so pleased with it! I love the colours and how easy it was to make! Emma you do have some amazing ideas, thank you!
Doesn't it look so lovely fluttering in the breeze, against a lovely summer day?
It was so easy to make - once I had mastered my sewing machine again. I am ashamed to say it is probably five years (!) since I have had it out of its little jacket to stitch anything. I am not much of a seamstress at the moment, although I would love to learn more :-), and it took me a good 20 minutes to remember how to thread it! But once we got going there was nothing stopping us and we raced through the bunting! We are having some friends and their children over soon for an afternoon get together I think these will look lovely draped around the patio and amongst the trees, to really make it an occasion!
I think I am just going to have to purchase a lovely tablecloth to go with it. I am thinking red and white gingham would be perfect, with one of my lovely hand embroidered tablecloths (one of my boot sale finds) draped pretty over the top. Perhaps I could make a tablecloth, that shouldn't be too hard should it? Just a bit of hemming? Yes, I think that might have to be my next project!
And on top of the table, I think I will have to copy Lucy's lovely idea over at Attic 24 and use my bonne maman jars, prettily adorned with ribbon as tealight holders. Thank you Lucy! I can see it all now! It will look perfect!
