Blundering around the local market on Saturday morning (why do markets have to be so morning oriented?), I came across a book of garden flower illustrations for 50p. As usual, I had no clue what I would do with it, but I was pretty sure an idea would come to mind. After staring at the pages for a while (panicking that I’d taken apart a perfectly good book), an idea surfaced. There may already be a lot of bunting in the world, but there’s probably room for just a little more.*It was really easy to make, so I thought I’d write out what I did rather than a step by step. If you want to make some heart bunting of your own, just follow the basic outline.* I made a stencil, drew round it onto a few sheets of illustrations, and cut these hearts out. I used remnants from a paper shopping bag and a piece of old sheet music for the individual flags, and glued a heart to each of these. Then, I stitched round the hearts on a sewing machine. On some flags, I also stitched round the border.For the string, I sewed together strips of scrap lace, pinned the flags to it, and sewed along the top of each flag (convinced I would never be able to untangle the mess I was making), and finished by tying the loose ends at the back. And – tadah! – some recycled paper shopping bag bunting (which may be a bit of a long name, but it’ll do for now). And it was even sunny enough to photograph it outside. How about that?
