Bonny Pink Bunting

The loom band obsession continues. Little Miss making watch straps, hairbands and bracelets ....

.... and Little Tomboy making wrist-bands (NOT bracelets, ok??)

I unashamedly bribed Little Miss today that if she tidied her room (a task of gargantuan proportions let me tell you) then I would buy her some more bands. I also promised her the finished pink bunting that I've been working on.

I'd finished the triangles, and joined them with some banding and buttons, yesterday. Just a bit of a blocking miracle to apply ....

.... do you like my new ironing board cover ?? Quite funky, no ?

I let Little Miss loose in the button tin. If the job had been left to me, I'd have chosen pink and white buttons, and alternated them. Little Miss was far more adventurous. When I saw her choices my heart sank, especially at the red heart. I mean red with all that pink ? Seriously ?? But you know what, it really really works and finishes it off Just Right. Good choice Little Miss.

Aaah a tower of triangles ...

.... all laid out ...

... and in the recipient's hands :)

... and here it is strung along the side of her cabin bed. Excuse the slightly scary clown in the background: she won it at Brownies. It totally gives me the creeps but she doesn't seem to mind him ...

.... I think I may have underdone the blocking but it's all good ....

So there you have it. Bonny Bunting for a Bonny Lass. And look, here is the red heart button again.
Just Right :)

  4. Such cute bunting, I to have a aversion to red and pink, but I'm trying to over come it, sometimes it really works, like here. Yay for loom bands my nephew is hooked too.
