Worldly Bunting

While I was in Wagga over Easter I raided my Grandmother's book shelf. I was after an old atlas, she had a beautiful old one with no cover and it was falling apart at the seams. I was hoping it wasn't too sentimental as I wanted to chop it up. The fact that it was in bad condition made it a lot easier to cut up. I love the deep green and orange colours it had. Most atlases I had seen were soft blues and brown and that wouldn't suit the boy's room.

I made paper bunting which I had seen and loved over here. Kelly Doust has some gorgeous paper made things on her blog.

I'm loving how well it goes with the coloured glass windows.

Hint: I used a double layer of paper for extra thickness so they wouldn't curl, sewed them on the machine and used wide bias binding to join them.
