Happy Valentine's Day!

Here's a project I've been working on lately, and it's fitting I should post about it today. My friend Kate and her fiance are to be married in July, with an outdoor ceremony on the north Devon coast (previously planned for Westonbirt). Together Kate and I are making bunting to decorate her outdoor venue, in her bridal colours of cherry red, teal and white.

I started with a trial version, with some fabric scraps from my stash...

Kate's bridal bunting: trial/version/one

Then Kate chose her fabrics and decided on a larger triangle flag, to be sewn wrong sides together and trimmed with pinking shears, rather than seamed as above. We then cut and sewed 200 flags...

Once Kate has decided on the various lengths she needs, we'll attach them to bias-binding. In total it will be around 40 metres.

What a wonderful idea! And a cozy workstation, too.
