I hate shopping BUT ............ No. 1

Really ?
This was a no-brainerI bought one of these great do-it-yourself hand screen printed bunting panels off Nic of Yardage Design for a friend for Christmas. (and another one cause they were so ridiculously cheap)
Isn't it a great idea. The bunting and the instructions are all printed on one panel. You can either use the panel to make double sided bunting with Nic's patterns on both sides, or add your own fabric for the back.....thereby getting more flags.

This has to be one of those "why didn't I think of it?" kind of ideas.....Brilliant.
Apart from a great idea, Nic designs her own fabric and tea-towels, is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and was a joy to hang out with when we met at Stitches and Craft all those months ago.
(and no, this is not advertising. I really truly bought these off my own bat and just love them)

However, if you would like to see some real life advertising , come back tomorrow .......
(oh, and at this point I'm going for Number One on the green circle quilt)


  1. I;ve got some too, I think they're great!

  2. Ah yes... another one of those 'why didn't I think of that' moments. Nic is very clever.

  3. I love this idea of Nic's, and doesn't she package and present everything in such an eye catching & snazzy way? You can never have too much bunting, great idea for Christmas x

  4. They are awesome! My husband is the 'king' of thinking up great ideas after everyone else has already thought of them!! ;) He will commiserate with you! ;)

  5. What a fantastic idea. I'm never able to think of clever things like that, totally brain dead I am.

  6. I'm trying to figure out why I didn't buy one of these when I was at S&C... blinded by her cute teatowels, I think....

  7. 'tis why i have one in every colour & sell Yardage Design too, she's clever, what's not to love?? Have fun sewing, love Posie

  8. love this - added to my xmas list now! (and thanks for the tutorials, these are also on my list to make for gifts) now just need to find the time!

  9. Isnt that Nic talented? I bought some Yardage fabric on the weekend and it arrived today. Beautiful (and I saw that bunting but couldnt think of a use for it - and now I'm kicking myself )

  10. I am doing a Handmade Christmas so Nic's panel will be perfect :-)


Hellloooooo !!!!
