So its Jubilee weekend and all the the bunting and flags have disappeared from the shops but am I undetered? NO. Time to dive into my stash of fabric, which sort of turned into a massive clearout!
One massive black bin bag and a neatly organised fabric box later, I have found some starchy white cotton, an old checked blue duvet cover and some red gingham, joy! Now where are those 'plinking' shear's?
I had great fun chopping out bunting shaped triangles and putting them in Red, White and Blue order ready to attach to some old bias binding I had knocking around.
I realised at this point that I really do have lots of different collections of textile products, I then went to my collection of thread and instantly found some crisp white cotton to sew the bunting together.
So thus so far I have 'plinked' bunting flags, bias binding (blue albeit a slightly different shade) and cotton. This has cost me ......... sweet FA! How good is that I have bunting that hasn't cost me a penny.
Now off to create patriotic cup cakes!
