England’s fairly disastrous World Cup efforts in 2010 coincided with the arrival of my new sewing machine, (a Brother XR-6600), and I was keen to try out the various decorative stitches so made this bunting in the hope it would bring good luck to the team. Needless to say, it didn’t. Two years on we still have this up in the living room, as the colours go rather well with the decor – only two years to wait until the next world cup, I suppose!
You can see close-ups of each individual flag below – they are made from leftover curtain lining. Waste not want not!
If you want more detailed instructions as to how to make any of these, just comment below and I’ll explain all!
