Bunting Backlog #2 !!

It’s happened again! A little backlog of bunting snaps has stacked up, so here’s a peak into my latest bunting adventures and custom name bunting orders…

a groovy rainbow colour spectrum for baby Artemis in Greece.
A beautifully colourful range of red, orange, yellow, green and blue patterned and plain fabrics. Modern florals, stops and polka dots – a perfect not-too-girly choice for a little baby named after the God of war! :)

The first Crafty Prawn name bunting to feature accents – well you want it be perfect after all eh? I love this selection of ditsy floral rose prints, striped linen and small polka dots. The subtle shades make for a girly but not too sickly-sweet-baby-focused colour scheme.

blog-01…and finally, it’s another special nephew bunting for my nephew Jago’s 1st birthday, back in Brecon, Wales!!!
Made in a soft tonal range of blues, greys and greens which will also co-ordinate with Jago’s quilt, this name bunting is extra long – for a special nephew after all – and features two spotty yellow stars on either end of the name.

Bon Voyage ‘Mustard & Elephant’ Matching Trio!

…patchwork quilt…cushion cover…name bunting…
100_sml…Remember my ‘Mustard & Elephant’ patchwork quilt that came together in all it’s yellow, grey and turquoise glory last year  (-you can read more about it here-), well I’m happy to say that together with it’s matching ‘Mustard & Elephant’ cushion companion (-you can see all about that here-), were right up Molly-from-Kansas’ street. So much so that she requested a length of ‘Crafty Prawn’ personalised name bunting for baby Soren to go with them…
So after being prettily packaged with love and co-ordinating coloured tissue paper, this trio trundled off to Kansas!
blog1-01Here are some pictures of the quilt…
…beautifully bold yellow, grey, navy and turquoise rectangular patchwork of polka dots, gingham and stripes.
…graphic machine-quilted with mustard yellow baby sized rectangles within each rectangle of the patchwork.
…made using a variety of new, collected, found and up-cycled fabrics in rich plains and graphic unusual patterns.
123_edit_smlthe cushion…
…made with soft navy linen, yellow gingham and patches of my hand screen-printed ‘Horses & Houses’ fabric.
…featuring two hand cut horses appliqued with blue decorative stitching which stride across the turquoise patch.
…a stripey navy, yellow & grey polka-dot envelope back with funky button fastening for a touch of whimsy.

…made using triangles of my original folk-inspired screen-printed ‘Horses & Houses’ fabric – printed on ticking fabric in a slate grey.
…hand-cut navy letters appliqued on a variety of turquoise gingham, yellow polka dot and grey ditsy dot.
…flags are totally reversible so the bunting can be hung in the centre of a room – perfect parties/playrooms.

Bunting Backlog…!

 After a little flurry of personalised name-bunting orders just before christmas, I thought I would share my backlog of bunting snaps

…a sophisticated grey, red, navy and baby-blue palette for baby Hudson in Indiana, USA.
Colours chosen specially to co-ordinate with Hudson’s bedding with a smidge of checked red linen in there too as this was also used in the current bedding. Want to see pictures in more detail? click here.blog-01
…a juicy combo of sunny yellow, emerald green and royal blue for little Leo in Utah, USA
I ordered a special fabric for this one on the customers request – called ‘Delft..the city i love so well!’ by Bora (Deborah van de Leijgraaf) – and believe it or not was designed here in The Netherlands; printed in America by Spoonflower.com; and promptly shipped to Rotterdam where it was used in a lovely length of The Crafty Prawn bunting; only to be popped back in the post to the USA to be hung in Leo’s nursery. Amazing eh?! Want to see pictures in more detail? click here.

…and finally, a very special one for my little nephew Finley’s 1st birthday, in Bristol, UK!!!
Made in funky rainbow colours to match Finn’s quilt, this name bunting is extra long – for a special nephew after all – and features a bold selection of graphic fabrics, with red letters for contrast! Rainbow name-bunting will soon be available in The Crafty Prawn shop…very soon. Want to see pictures in more detail? click here.
