There'll Always Be An England ......

.... or in my case, there'll always be a copycat!!
Yes, I must admit to a bit of blatant copying here.
As soon as I saw some Union Jack bunting made with the stamp
from the Artistic Outpost set, I just had to make some of my own!

The bunting is so easy to make - I love it!!!
Full credit to
for this wonderful idea!

I used faded denim from some old jeans of mine to back the little flags on.
I rubber stamped the image onto white cotton fabric
using acrylic paint directly onto the stamp and spritzing with a little
water just before stamping.

I machine stitched the flags onto the denim backing fabric
and used seam binding to stitch them together.
It couldn't be easier!

I made some more in girly colours and added buttons to the centres.

Here's a peek at the back.

All I need now is another Royal Wedding,
I'd really go bunting mad then - LOL.

Thanks for looking :)

Beautiful recycled project! Love your bunting and great use of AO stamps! Too clever to make one in pink! Don't forget to add this to AO's monthly referral program for a chance to win!
