my creative space ... bunting

Yesterday, my creative space was covered in bunting triangles ...




I love fabric bunting, but I wanted an easy option, so I created this (rather large) craft panel ...


It is hand screen printed on 100% cotton in red, blue, green and pink ...


These new craft panels will be available at the Melbourne Stitches and Craft Show next week! You will be able to buy them in my online shop after the show. They are also for sale at Craft Victoria. Let me know what other colours you'd like to see this panel printed in too!

That is super cute! Hope you've got lots for the craft show - as I think they'll be popular. {People could buy two packs, and then have double sided bunting.....}.
Hmmm.... I think I'm going to sew bunting now. For my market stall tomorrow night.

Hi Nic. I have one of your tea towels bought for me by Beck@dandelion. It's a ripper, as is everything else you do. I too am printing fabric, and I totally understand the joy you felt seeing those first prints. Congratulations!
