Hi Folks.
well i have been busy again this week.
I was trying to figure out how to make a bunting out of my beautiful filigree hearts doilies.
so out came my old faithful cutting machine, and i set to work to make a backing templateto for the hearts, using my Inkscape program.
I used Kraft card for the backing as i wanted a shabby chic look. i used my xyron machine to sticky back the hearts, it was a bit tricky as the hearts are so thin, so i had to be careful not to tear them. then i set to work doing what i love....decorating.
I finished off with metal eyelets to make it stronger and then used jute twine instead of ribbon.
i hope you like them, i thought it looked very pretty and very unique.
this is for sale in my eBay shop.

Hello Folks.
I have been having a bit of a play with some new doilies that arrived from America.
they are so cute and small.
dont they make pretty little decorations to hang in a window or just about anywhere.
I used 6 doilies to make this hanging decoration.
They measure 3.5" or 9cm.
a piece of twine and two wooden beads.
The doilies are available from both my eBay store and website

Hi Folks, Happy new year to you all.
I have finally got around to doing some crafting this year, and decided to make my version of a doily bunting.
you do see a lot of Doily bunting, but they are usually just a round Doily folded in half and put on string.
so i decided to do one using my 5" square doily.
here is the end product.
notice the for lettering which is my next one.
I have these bunting for sale in my eBay shop in assorted colours.
