Bunting mania!

As one of my summer projects I have been making bunting – for myself and also as presents. The bunting currently hanging up in my room (and there’s quite a lot of it!) is in really bright colour stripes and polka dots to brighten up my uni room.

For my friend Ellie, who has moved to New Zealand for her year abroad, I used some hilariously patriotic fabric to remind her of home!

For my lovely little cousin Will’s 2nd birthday I went for a dinosaur theme:

I found a link earlier to some fab online fabric stores and REALLY want to get on to making some more bunting. But i’m off on holiday later (to sunny Yorkshire!) so I’ll just have to be content with crocheting some instead…

SUMMER ~ part 1

I am having a very lazy summer – which is just how I like it! I’ve read loads of crime novels, napped in the sun and have done a lot of crafting. Bliss!

I’ve crocheted cushion covers (that my lovely mother has finished off with her wonderful sewing skills).

I’ve made mandalas and a weird hexagon thing in neutral colours for our living room.

And I’ve made a ridiculous amount of bunting to decorate my room at uni with:

And that’s all I have pictures of at the moment! More to come soon.
