So the new bunting style I have been working on is STARS....
I stared in a plain colour, to get the shape.
I kept it one colour throughout, to keep it simple.
I will put this on a matching dark pink ribbon. But to stop it looking quite so plain, I think I will embellish, possibly with beads.
Whilst making these I decided that they would look lovely in gold. At first I tried a pink star with gold edging, but this did not work as the gold did not keep a strong enough shape for an edge. So I reversed it and made a gold centre and used the pink for the edging.
I am happy with how these turned out, and I now need to find some beautiful gold ribbon for them to hang on. Unfortunately I don't have anywhere great locally to source materials, no exciting haberdashery shops here!
I thought these stars would make a great christmas decoration, without feeling like I was actually making anything festive, as they would look great at any time of the year for any occasion.
Next I want to take the star to another stage, by putting it within a square, but whether I can achieve this is another matter, we will soon find out if it is beyond me!
And I haven't forgotten those butterflies - honest!
