Stocking Up.

While dodging the April showers some of us enjoy being rubbed and fussed over…

And some of us enjoy stocking up on materials!  Isn’t this pirate fabric gorgeous?  I want to make a bunting for a little boy and while fabric suitable for girls is no problem, fun, colourful fabrics for boys can be hard to find.  I spotted the fish design first and loved it. Then along came the pirates.  Perfect.  They’re quirky, cute, bright and will look great as bunting.  I was delighted!

I love the ships bobbing on the sea and the bright colours of the design overall.  The green and white striped fabric will go nicely with the other two and lighten the colour scheme of the bunting.

I was looking for some girly fabric as well, something fresh and light while not being too pink.  Easy peasy.  Happy bumble bees buzzing around some spring flowers and lilac hearts are just what I wanted.  The green and white stripes will look great with these designs and tie the brother and sister buntings together nicely.

I didn’t stop at fabric.  I needed some buttons so I got some!

Lots of buttons!  I have plenty of ideas for this lot.  Time to get started…
