Lots of bunting!!

I first started making the wedding bunting in June last year. If only i had known that I would end up making so much!

It only took 8 months, 213 flags and a whole lot of stash fabric and bias binding to make 116m worth!!!

I only had to buy about 3m of fabric right at the end to make it enough. I am still surprised I had so much stash fabric - dread to think what it would have cost me otherwise!

It was very popular on the day too. Lots of people commented on it and many people asked what my plans for it after the wedding were, with hope I was giving it away!

My plan, I think, will be to turn it into a quilt. Although the thought of unpicking it all doesn't thrill me much. IT would be lovely to have a keepsake from the day; it went so quick and we had such an amazing day I wish we could relive it all over again. However, I dunno that I have ever been soo busy in my life, and at points stressed.

Wouldn't have changed it for the world  xxxx
