More creativity – welcome Marleigh, the latest creation! Bunting, Baking, Babies and Butterflies! June 28, 2015 shortfield9 Leave a comment Madeleine’s Thank you Gingerbread Cookies (great Waitrose recipe) with decorated letters and shapes. Well done and a very thoughtful way to show your appreciation to Grandad Barry and Nanna Dawn for their birthday money. Of course some of the cookies had to be tailor- made for Daisy and Matthew! I love the fact that the butterfly looks as if it might just fly away with the elephant! Madeleine and Daisy have bedrooms decorated with butterflies so I made Daisy some bunting for her room and I am waiting to find some yellow and grey butterfly fabric with which to make Madeleine’s. I was particularly pleased with the little cushion pad which was a charity shop find and the remnants from 3 fat quarters (quilting parcels) that I had used to make the bunting from – all in all, quite inexpensive but very effective. Oh no, not more bunting! Well, yes but this is to welcome the latest member of the family – this is for Marleigh Olivia Sidwell, born 2nd June 2015. The bunting was made from remnants bought from Jaylaur in Brigg and the wooden letters were purchased from Hobbycraft – who deliver extremely efficiently and fast. This bunting has been made to welcome Marleigh into her new family – what a wise choice!
