I am loving the shoot for the, Wildfox White Label SS 2012, 'Pony Tale' Collection. I Love Wildfox is one of my favourite blogs to read, as it really is inspirational to look at. Kimberley Gordon's photos for this Collection are effortlessly laidback, cool and the kind of images that make you anticipate the summer. She describes the collection as, 'a grown up fairytale' and I couldn't agree more. The Horse printed tee and the beige gold sequin cross shorts particularly caught my eye.

Before Christmas I became a very proud Auntie to a nephew called Arthur...I had a few hours to spare so thought I would give bunting a go. Something I have always wanted to do, but never got round to. I was really pleased with the result and I will definitely be making some to decorate our student house. 

For this bunting I used four different patterned fabrics, preferably in a strong/thickish cotton, just because I think it looks better and will last longer. 

What I used:
A triangular template
2 lengths of Bias Binding ( I used Navy blue for the front and Red for the back)
I had 8 triangles, so I cut out 16 to begin with.
Red and blue felt for the lettering

I didn't take many photos whilst I was making the bunting, but I got the general idea from this website. Otherwise I used my initiative. Definitely use a sewing machine though, hand sewing would take weeks!
