How to make a Fun, Fringe Bunting.

Color, Color Everywhere!!

I'm always looking for fun, new ideas to make. And, while being laid up for the past week with a nasty cold. I thought...I need some fun, some color, more importantly..I need to sew. Well, since I only had maybe 30 minutes of energy at a shot, I had to do something quick.

Enter the fringe bunting!
Here's what I did.
1. Cut up a bunch of strips of fabric. You can measure if you like but I just did it randomly.
2. I took a 1/2" wide section of bias tape. (This one was 6 ft long),
placed the strips in wha
tever way I wanted
(randomly), pinned each one in.
3. Then I simply stitched from one side of t
he open ended bias tape to the other end. Removing t
he pins as I went.

4. Presto! A fun, colorful, cute fringe bunting that brightens up any space. I personally think it would be great at a kids party, or outside at any party.

Enjoy Creating your own!

Retro Indie Market

It's just around the corner! The quicker it get's here the better. I'm talking about my up coming show. The Retro Indie Market, in Boynton Beach, FL. Saturday, February the 12th.

First of all, I'm going to be honest. I'm beyond happy that this show is in Florida. I need a little sunshine in my life, on my face, my body....everywhere. I'm growing a bit weary of the cold, snow, and temps never getting above 35.

Secondly...I know it's going to be a really fun show. A High School acquaintance of mine, Michelle Parparian has a hand in putting this show together. So, if she's still as funny, crazy and original as she used to be back in the'll be good.

So, if your in the area, come out for a visit. Tons of vintage and handmade items. Sure to be something for everyone.
