this entire weekend has flown by in a sewing frenzy!! I got a little behind in sewing for the new John Lewis Displays (remember I did a display of Woodland Friends late last year?) and at the start of the weekend I still had 24 butterflies to sew and all the bunting to construct AAAAHHHH! I finally stitched the last butterfly about 7pm yesterday and then the bunting construction began...measuring and checking and then sewing all the felt creatures onto wide ribbon....eight times over!! Despite nearly running out of time and having a slight panic along the way it was fun to make so many of them...and this time round they will be displayed in two John Lewis shops, twice the work but oh so worth it~!!
In total there are 8 rows of bunting :: 12 bumble bees :: 24 butterflies :: 44 cupcakes
