New traditions


I have a bit of a fabric stash building. I also have picked up lots of old pieces of embroidered napkins and throws from op shops. And making some slingers (dutch for bunting) seemed like an easy, fun way to use them up. This one is intended for a little boy who is due to arrive this Sunday. I'll be meeting him soon and I can't wait!

Bunting is huge here in Holland and I will always associate with summer in Vondelpark. Making a set kind of feels like a weird integration task. I did notice when I was back in NZ that bunting was popping up at some of the craft markets, but to me it will always be a Dutch tradition.
