In November I booked a 'festive bunting' workshop for myself and my friend Natalie at the new Sew Over It store in Islington. Natalie is learning how to sew and I thought it would be a fun way to catch up over a bit of craft.
The shop frontage of the Sew Over it store is a beautiful shade of lilac and inside it has the familiar pink highlights like the Clapham store. Lisa was running the session which started at 6pm with tea and cake (Nat and I were a bit late so missed that bit) then onto a quick demonstration by Lisa about how to construct the bunting.
After a speedy two hours I managed to come up with this! To be honest the selection of fabric that Lisa had prepared did not conjure up my idea of festive bunting - the fabrics were a range of polka dot cottons in lilac, pink, blue and black. I chose the blue polka dot and then bought half a metre of red polka dot and the darker coloured tarten you can see in the photo. I found a lighter red tarten in the scrap box that we had permission to raid.
It was only after Nat send me the photo of me looking dead proud of my bunting that I realised that the colour combinations of my sweater and trousers match perfectly!! How twee.
