Well here goes. My first Mollie Makes project reveal. Teeny tiny bunting on a top for my little fairy.
After flicking through the August issue of Mollie Makes I decided to try the mini bunting. As you can see I used the tutorial as inspiration, choosing triangular bunting and a little top instead of the skirt.
I won't even attempt to regurgitate the tutorial but here is a little of the process. I chose the fabric and decided on template size for the little triangles.
I cut them, stacked up with my rotary cutter and sewed them up. I added bias binding, a narrow satin type I had in my stash.
I decided to hand sew this part as the bunting is so small it was a bit of a faff with the sewing machine. I also liked that you could have invisible stitches along the tape. Then I stitched it onto the top, a basic little long sleeved cotton t-shirt.
And now the before and after.
I enjoyed completing this project although i'm not really sure if i would do it again. The bunting was a little fiddly. I will sticking to larger scale versions for draping gaily around the house.
I have ear-marked a few other projects I would like to give a whirl. When my crochet skills improve I wouldn't mind trying the star garland. It would make a cute festive decoration.
And I will definitely be giving stamp carving a go. It's been on my to-do list for quite a while.
Did any of you make anything lovely from issue seventeen?
