The apple blossom has finally arrived. With the recent cold snap the trees decided to keep their buds and blossoms under wraps for a little while longer, safer for them but a bit less colour for us!
Meanwhile I’ve been busy making some boy bunting with the gorgeous pirate themed fabric I found.
I chose a light blue felt for the letters, the yellow thread of the stitches stands out nicely against it.
I love all the little details in the fabric design.
Some buttons add another dash of colour across the top, the blue and white stripes in keeping with the sailor(ish!) theme.
With little orange buttons just because they’re little orange buttons!
And there we have it. A pirate bunting for Captain Alex. I hope he likes it!
Remember the stash of lovely buttons I came home with? Well here’s what I’ve been doing with some of them. This cute heart is on it’s way to becoming a card to welcome a new baby into the world. But more of that next time…
