Bountiful Bunting!

 Inspired by Benta (thank you!!) I've run up some quick 'off to uni' or 'back to uni' bunting.

Isn't that a nice idea that she had? 

I cut some 5" squares, sewed them together and turned them through (cutting an 'x' in the middle of the front square which was then covered up), added wadding squares (2 1/4" square) and fusible letters / buttons.  Easy to make and fun to root through the button box to find appropriate buttons.

 I don't know if it will be appreciated or not, but this mad old aunty likes the idea, which makes it worthwhile!  It could decorate a door or a pinboard - or the inside of a cupboard if the recipients don't like it!
Other sewing projects are in my head at the moment, and I'm hoping that they will get to the cutting and making stage in the very near future.  I feel a scrap quilt coming on - in time, perhaps two or three!


  1. What a lovely thoughtful aunt you are!

  2. What a good idea. DD3 just left for uni.

  3. You might have stolen my idea (you are welcome) but you've raised the standard considerably!!!!

  4. Hi Plum I think its a great idea and such fun I have a DGD at uni and would be fun to make for her, thanks for sharing. Simple but cute and fun to make Hugs Glenda
