My Creative Space…

My Creative Space today is to hopefully finish part 2 of my Melbourne Epicure bunting which I showed you the beginnings of here.
The letters are painted on with fabric paint and I used a couple of pairs of Mr M.E’s ripped jeans.

Thanks for all the words of encouragement last time as this is my first EVER sewing project and I am quite enjoying it.

Now back to figure out why the sewing machine thread isn’t sewing all the way through in parts…hmmm, where’s that manual..

Have a look round here for Kirsty’s end of 2009 Creative Space and for some other fabulous ones aswell.

    Is there nothing this woman can't do? Not only that, is there nothing this woman can't do exceedingly well…?! I pretend I can sew on a regular basis, but I really just faff about looking busy. I think your bunting is looking amazing. A little too amazing.

    Okay. I'm jealous. There. I've admitted it!

  • Oh wow, that looks amazing! Can't wait to check it out on Saturday.

  • Looks fabulous Cathie! I wonder if you've been swearing at yourself for choosing a name with so many letters like I do when I make Daylesford Organics signage. Have a wonderful market weekend. XX

  • Ah ! now it all add's up. 🙂 …I was unsure what the denim meant with the last creative space post. This banner looks lovely Cathie…wow…handling a sewing machine sounds so difficult and scary… your work is just so neat…and i love the contrasting panels!
    ps: I posted my creative space with the last post i put up…did you see it cathie ? … the picture is inspired by your amazing work and also with the tips you gave me on how to get a nice shot with the use of the baking tin :). you are my photography guru ! 🙂

  • The bunting looks great, certainly doesn't look like you got into too many tangles putting it together (but better check the manual just in case!). Have a great day.

  • I love bunting – I made my 70 year old mum one that said 'nana' with lots of love – the grandkids loved it too! Well done and excellent old jeans use!

  • First sewing project – what a great job you've done.
    Definitely read the manual and change your needle just for luck – denim blunts them quickly.

  • It looks good- sometimes with heavy denim its easier to use a denim needle which you can put in any sewing machine- you can get leather ones too.
    It does look great!

  • Looking good Cathie! It's funny, this week you have a sewing creative space and I have a baking creative space!!

  • Your bunting looks great!

  • It looks so fabulous. I think you're a natural when it comes to sewing.

  • Your bunting looks fantastic, it will make your already delicious little stall even more irresistible! Good luck with both of your markets this weekend.

  • mmmmm bunting…. I just love it

  • Didn't I tell you!?! Not as scary as it sounds and VERY addicitive!

    Your bunting looks FANTASTIC x

  • Looks amazing. Can't wait to see it on Saturday. You are a brave vegemite to start sewing, next you will be sewing all the lovely bags to put the yummy cookies in. 😉

  • the banner looks amazing! great colours too!

  • I had to double check the blog link because I couldn't see yummy food… only yummy bunting… hehe They look great and I like the mixed medium of paint and fabric… 5 stars!!!

  • Wow…it looks BRILLIANT!! Congratulations!!

  • Your bunting is great! I really like the cursive letters – very stylish! Good luck on the weekend!

  • The bunting looks great Cathie, you have done a wonderful job. Your stall will look great with that bunting. Have a good weekend at the markets. xox

  • Looks fantastic Cathie! Can't wait to see it finished 🙂

  • Wow, I think you did brilliantly! I've been wanting bunting for my stall too, but am too chicken to use the sewing machine…

    Maybe I should. hm. You have inspired me. XD

  • It looks great! I love the red stripes.

  • This amazing…I so love bunting and your lovely blog. Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting me.

  • I love ddenim and I love buntings so this post has cheered me today. many thanks!

  • I'm so proud of you Cathie! It looks fantastic. Well done to you.

  • Looks FAB! Well done clever cookie. : )
    I laughed when I read your line about going back to your manual. Truth is I check my manual EVERY TIME I go to thread up my machine… possibly because I don't use it often enough, I obviously need to build up that neural pathway. : D

  • cute space! i love cupcakes too. i love the banner idea. i was thinking of something like this for our wedding.

    Cathie, you did an amazing job!!! I love it!

  • Fantastic job! Do you think you could show us a photo of it up at the market? I hope you enjoyed making it.
