I am finally over the jet lag, why on earth does it take so long?
Anyway, I arrived back on Wednesday night to be faced with a leaving present for my sons beautiful teacher, Miss H to be complete by Thursday night (eek). She is going on maternity leave and I was asked to help the kids prepare a present for her. Of course, bunting is the answer for all expectant mothers!
I asked the kids to draw on paper either a circle, square or triangle to a specific size and then to decorate with messages of good luck, congratulations and love. I was not disappointed, there were some beautiful pieces. I then stitched each shape onto the reverse of the bunting.
I wanted the front to have some truly beautiful fabric, so I chose Nano Iro’s Pierre Pocho from Kelani Fabrics. It is a beautiful Japanese double gauze ivory fabric with subtle spots in pastel tones. It is the perfect baby fabric for a boy or girl. I even had some fabric left over to stretch onto a canvas, just to add a little extra loveliness!
