More bunting!

Here's another item I made for my daughter - I really must find more things I can make for my son!  She wanted some new bunting when we moved house so I let her choose a whole range of material and made her some from that.  My last attempt at bunting was making proper triangles sewn together but this time I went for a simple method with triangles cut with pinking shears and attached together with a nice bit of bias binding.  Now if I could only get her to tidy her room...

Wall hanging with pockets

I was trying to decide what to make next as I wanted something a bit different so I decided to make a wall hanging with pockets for my daughter.  Having previously made crayon rolls, I adapted the idea in my mind to be able to make the hanging.  I was quite pleased with the finished product but think if I did it again I would make the bottom set of pockets into three rather than two.  My daughter seemed to enjoy it though!

Shopping lists

As I'm off following a knee op, I thought I should update the blog!  I've got several items to show so maybe I'll actually get round to writing some of them this week.

This item was another one I made as a Christmas present for one of my sisters.  At Christmas I always try to make something for my family but this year things got in the way and I needed an emergency gift for my sister. I remembered that we went to the crafting exhibition at the NEC and I bought a cardboard covered ring-bound notebook.  I painted it blue (my sister's favourite colour) and decorated it with black alphabet stickers and sparkly gold butterflies.  I wish I'd bought more now as I quite fancy one for myself too!
