SUNSHINE AND TRIANGLES . . .


Good afternoon blogging friends ~ hope you are well and the sun is shining.  We had a beautiful day yesterday with lovely warm temperatures but once again today we are back to grey skies and still awaiting the predicted thunderstorms!

As mentioned in my last post I had an idea for using up some left over fabrics, one of which I had used to pillow finish my cute little ferret!

One pile of scrap fabrics, some bias binding and some wooden buttons

20 cut triangles ~ think you know where we are going here?

Ready to go ~ sewing machine, sewing box, iron & board and ........ sunshine!

10 double-sided triangles, stitched, turned right side out and slipped under a 3 yard length of bias binding

all stitched in place

can't resist a button or two so added wooden ones between each triangle

FINISHED! One complete length of Bunting

Sunshine and bunting ~ perfect!

This bunting is so easy to make, a great way to use up your own choice of scraps and compared to shop prices ~ a great way of saving pennies ~ I can see a few more in the pipeline for different rooms but have just had a new cross stitch kit pop through the letterbox ~ and for that you will have to wait until next time!!!


Thanks for stopping by
HAPPY STITCHING
