Merry-Go-Round Handmade - Wedding Fabric Bunting

Recently I sold a pretty pastel Fabric Bunting to a lovely buyer in the USA.

It was only when it arrived that I found out that it was going to be used as decoration at her own wedding!
I was so pleased & so was Cheryl when it arrived. It was mentioned a pic may be sent to me after the big event.  Well..... here it is!!!!!!
I'm thrilled to see it. The happy couple looks gorgeous! And the bunting looks rather good too :)

A big thank you to Cheryl, I LOVE this pic, it certainly put a smile on my face.
I hope you get to use the bunting again for a special occasion, anniversary, birthday, garden party or maybe a welcome home baby celebration??!!!!!!!! :)
Wishing you both all the very best, regards Nicole.

And for anyone else that may be interested at this moment, I have another pastel fabric bunting in my store at 'ETSY'. It's similar style but different fabrics, etc.

I just recently listed SMURFS Fabric Bunting!

These sets of flags listed are a lovely combination of Preloved Smurf retro upcycled fabric, Red/White polka dot, Plain Blue Fabric, etc.
When I saw this Smurf fabric I just knew it was going to make wonderful flag bunting.
Whilst I have created a number of sets of these, they are all OOAK, that is One Of A Kind as no two buntings are the same and I only made a limited number of sets due to having only one piece of fabric. I hope you like them!
Total length is Two and a half metres (2.5m) / about 8.4 feet approx.
Eleven (11) flags in various new & retro preloved fabrics  

These SMURF buntings are available online, in my store on 'Made It' & Etsy

You have probably noticed that some babies love the tags on items (bibs, blankies, clothing, soft toys etc) more than the actual item itself.
Here is the perfect tag toy comforter your bub will love.
They are made with lots of assorted ribbon tags of different colors, fun textures, and various sizes for little fingers to play with - this sensory experience helps with a babies fine motor coordination.

My Etsy Treasury Lists

I've been having some fun making some Etsy Treasury Lists lately.
They are probably not the most beautiful curated collection of items in a treasury list but for me, done for my own inspiration.
It's only been a recent thing for me. Many of my treasury lists have been done according to colour or text.

If you are a member of Etsy, you can make your own.
Or you can just view other Etsy Treasury Lists than other members have created & add them to your favourites!

What is an Etsy Treasury I hear you ask?
The Treasury is a member-curated gallery of short-lived lists of 12 hand-picked items each. Members can feature their favorite items, items selected on a theme, or just whoever they like. The Treasury is not intended for self-promotion, but instead to acknowledge and share the many wonderful things for sale on Etsy.

Retro Vintage Upcycled Handmade Sewn Greeting Cards from book illustrations.

I've always loved Golden Books & other vintage books as a child. Some of my favourite children's books are from way back then. I now get to relive some of those memories & magic now that my little girl loves stories to be read to her.

Golden Books are beautifully illustrated with charming little stories with a moral or educational purpose. Since the first Little Golden Books in 1942, there have been over 600 original titles published, not counting the 140+ Disney titles, etc. Many of the original titles are still available today, having passed through several editions and innumerable printings. Rare titles in good condition become collectors items.

I've been gathering Golden Books & other vintage children's books for quite some time now and the ones not in good condition have now made it into a range of Upcycled Handmade Sewn Greeting Cards.
I'll have a range of these greeting cards at the markets I'll be attending & are now online in store on Made It & Etsy.

Retro Vintage Upcycled Handmade Sewn Greeting Cards from book illustrations.
Ideal use as: Birthday Card, Thank-You Card, Thinking Of You Card, etc
All images are original prints from actual vintage children’s books. I never use copies
All images rescued from old 'no longer' used books, all have been upcycled and they are sewn on to the card which adds to the charm of these lovely cards.
These cards are so sweet. They would be enjoyed by the young & us nostalgic older folk!

Each card is made from recycled brown kraft and is blank inside for your own message, it comes with a plain white envelope.
Cards Size (when folded): A6, 105mm x 147mm (or 4.2 x 5.8 inches approx)
All cards are back stamped with my contact details on the lower back of the card.
