Nothing gets me more in the mood for a little fabric shopping that a 17 hour flight to Australia. Wait…what? I don’t think I’m ever not in the mood for fabric shopping! Not even a long haul flight could put me off!
Earlier this week, the bunted! fairy grandmother took me out to Australian fabric heaven (Spotlight) and we had a little perusal of the delightful wares. Here are the latest additions to the bunted! collection:
During Sarah’s last trip to Australia, she managed to nab a super sweet toile fabric, in a nursery rhyme pattern. Sadly, although totally unsurprisingly, loads of lovely bunted! customers fell in love with the fabric and we’ve now totally run out. I though this pale pink toile was just as lovely, and in the same colour spectrum as the nursery rhyme toile, so hopefully you will all love it as much as I do!
I’ve accidentally gone totally girly and just simply had to have this strawberry and polka dot linen. It’s pretty light for a linen, which makes it sewing-machine-needle-friendly (excellent!). I can see this sandwiched between a mauve floral, and perhaps calico pennants? I am possibly being a tad too optimistic weather-wise, but Spring isn’t too far away, and this would be perfect for garden tea parties in the brand new sunshine, along with some of these pretties:
Tea party extravaganza - don’t forget to invite us! I don’t know if I can bear surrendering this lovely pastel horse fabric over the bunted! HQ….I might have to smuggle this into my personal collection!
Please excuse the wrinkles! Can you see why I adore it? I think it’s so delicate and lovely, feminine without being totally over the top girly. The bunted! fairy grandmother suggested that it would be apropos for an apron, and I must say I agree – can’t you just imagine me flouncing around the kitchen in a ruffled apron with a matching potholder? Must get Sarah to teach me how to make them…
This is too late for Christmas 2012, but next year you could own your very own Dr Seuss Christmas bunting! I stopped short of nabbing the Grinch fabric as well, but there’s still time to sneak back and get it – I’m sure it will fit in the suitcase! Well…reasonably sure…just…
I’ve already been a busy bee and made my first batch of bunting out of some of these delights, and pictures will follow. Stay tuned folks, and remember, if you have bought any bunting from bunted! we’d be delighted to see any pictures in situ, or to hear any feedback you may have!
