Oilcloth Bunting Party Flags ~ giveaway



Well here they are, i finally got round to photoing these. Superb for a girly birthday party or bbq.

I made them double sided from Red Plum Linen Pettite Roses Oilcloth and the Mexican Oilcloth in the tutti frutti stripe.

Each flag is moveable, on the 2 metres of pink candy floss grosgrain ribbon as a chanel has been made for the ribbon to go through, so they can be all bunched together in the middle or spaced out along the 2 metres for a larger area. They should last for years, as the oilcloth is reasonably fade resistant.

I d say they took me about an hour from start to finish, after running out of cotton, which was a silly thing to do, popping to to the local habby shop and getting sidetracked as you do, finding a cake shop and a quick cappucino. Finally getting back to finish them off, yes definitely an hour.

If I dont get too distracted tomorrow, I m going to write up some basic make-up instructions, as they are so easy to make, i have had some emails asking if i sell patterns for bunting, but i dont unfortunately, as the pattern is so easy to make its just a triangle.

Id love some feedback on these, so im giving this set of party bunting away free.

My youngest is 9 this month, and HE would not appreciate pink flags at his party, so if you can guess his birthday this month, then the flags are yours - so a 1 in 30 chance, not bad.

You'll also see them in my store soon. They will be priced at approx AUD$25.00 for a set of 5 flags with 2 metres of grossgrain ribbon.

Bye for now!!

15th April? These would look great in my studio and I think they are better in oilcloth as a quick wipe would make them easy to clean.
