Mini Christmas bunting.....

7 months minus one day to go

....until Christmas 2013 .....

... and time for the next 1 Christmas Item hosted by Narelle ....

I made 5 metres of this mini bunting from scraps


bits of Christmas fabric selvages and 1" strips from the scraps - sewn onto a piece of wadding .... 3" by whatever length I had...


sewed the strippy piece onto a plain back (scrap of course!!)


then drew marking lines.... these were at 2" intervals.... to make like mini trees!


... stitch on either side of the drawn lines.....

... then cut on the lines....


... and thread and knot the little trees onto your mini cord...


...... hum, sing, as you thread and knot.....


... all done, ready to hang up.....


.... rather cute I think...

.... scrappy, but cute... which is what I wanted....

.... cost me nothing but a couple of hours of footy time (can you tell I really love footy??????)....

Next month Narelle is visiting this end of the world... we are going to catch up for a cuppa... that will be fun.....

Righto, Gotto Go... still another deadline looming... this months SAL bag... almost done....
