Mini bunting

Hello. Lots of heavy rain this morning. We had to abandon the Rocky walk, even with his raincoat on it was too much to cope with. We beat a hasty retreat, I picked him up and hurried back home. So I have been getting on with the sewing. Mini bunting has been made, smaller than the last one. These are two inches wide across the top. I used some red cord instead of the ribbon and decided to keep it short and not add any more, because that would have meant doubling up on the colours. This time buttons and beads have been added, with beads threaded onto the cord between the flags.


The difference in the sizes. I like the small ones better.

A short post tonight, the bath water is running and it's almost ready. Going for a soak. Thanks for popping in.

  7. Hi.Very pretty,vibrant and cheery bunting,Ilona.Both are lovely.There is a silent auction at the senior's residence in our neighborhood this evening and I don't imagine that there will be anything as unique there.We've had the tail end of hurricane Patricia here and some fairly wild, windy, rainy weather.The hydro trucks have been out in full force and the wind still has not died down yet but the sun just came out.The storm kept Sadie and I up till four thirty or so this morning...hubby of course slept like a baby....yawning a bye for now,D.

  8. You have been an inspiration to me for years now. I used to be Tasmanian Minimalist but now have an art blog. Though I have never stopped reading you, I continually keep my frugal ways, but blog about craft and art type stuff. Ilona, keep on being you, it's who you are, it's what you do best. Oh and that bunting.....deelicious!!!!

  10. I like the small ones best, also. And the beads between are a great idea! The colors in the first pictures remind me of Indian fabric arts :)
