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.

Marley’s Dino Hoodie…with spots and fangs and everything

So, never mind that my little nephew Marley, thought that while his specially-made Dino Hoodie looked great and funny perched on the heads of his aunties, Grandpa and Nana; was too terrified and ‘No! No! No!’ to sport it himself… here is a little bit about a Dino Hoodie I just made for my nephew’s 2nd birthday. Roarrrrrr!


Marley was the grand old age of TWO a few weeks ago and as he has a fantastic imagination, a love of all things boyish and the energy of a Duracell bunny; I thought what better present for him, than a funky customised dinosaur outfit to dress up in.

I used a good quality, plain navy, childs hooded zip-up jumper from H&M, with a nice fleecey lining.The dino spikes are made from tangerine orange and moss green coloured felt, which has been double folded, interfaced and stuffed with a little bit of wadding to hopefully keep them perky through wearing and washing. Although not anatomically correct, they spike all the way up the back and over the hood, so when the hood is up, the dino look is complete!

But proper funky dinosaurs have spots too don’t they?

So, I also added – lets say ‘lots of’, I didn’t count – corduroy emerald green spots! They have been appliqued onto the hoodie using a variegated yellow/green thread and a tight zig-zag stitch, which adds some lovely extra detail to the whole outfit. A few soft stuffed little white fangs and two big bulging eyes and voila, a dinosaur! Really, you’re not convinced!?

I do believe that one day this funky little Dino will come into its own and Marley won’t want to take it off, ‘Roarring’ all the way; but until then – I only have these photos of a rather empty and flat Dino Hoodie, with no little toddler toddling about inside, so you’ll just have to use your imagination! In my defence, I think that said little nephew was a bit put off dressing up as a dinosaur after seeing a big man dressed up in a real dinosaur mask, so don’t be put off! :)
