I have wanted to make one of these for sooooo long, that when the opportunity arose with this months Bubbly Funk kit I jumped at the chance!!
The kit has so many pages of patterned paper in it that even after four weeks of projects I am able to make something of this size and still have quite alot left over. Although I am now on the hunt for a childs shoebox to cover with my leftovers to store this banner in.
Tricky to photograph on a rainy day...I couldn't exactly hang it from the washing line to get a photo so I apologise for the baby buggy in the background!!
I used a small nation worth of lace but I am afraid there is no other way around it approx 10 metres.... Sorry no shortcuts today!!
There are full instructions and page by page photos for those of you who are interested or who just want to inspect my terrible stitching up close over HERE.
I would seriously recommend buying this kit for all those Christmas presents and winter projects, there are so many embellishments you'll still be using them up in the New Year!!
