DIY Recycled Jumper Bunting and an Apology

Hello Lovelies,

Well I can't quite believe that I last posted about a month and a half ago - Sorry! I have been ridiculously busy as I finished so freelance work, went on holiday and most recently have moved from Buckinghamshire down to the South Coast! We are pretty much settled into our new home now after being here just over a week and I am loving being able to dedicate a room to my crafting :) I will hopefully be able to post some pictures soon!

Since we decided me were moving I have been constantly thinking about furniture and decorating although being on a pretty much non-existent budget has hampered some of my ambitions. I soon realised that my studio just wasn't pretty enough and the only way that could be solved was with bunting.

I found an old cushion I had really badly made when I was about 12 from one of my favourite woollen jumpers that my Dad had felted in the washing machine... and thought it would make some really cute bunting with the added bonus of not having to worry about the fabric fraying which is a win-win in my eyes.

The Finished Product
 You will need: Old Felted Jumper, Ribbon, Cotton Thread and Scissors
 Cut out as many triangles as you like using a simple template
 Pin the triangles evening on your ribbon and sew!

I love my new bunting! What do you think?


  1. so cute! i want a craft room!! hope you're settling in well into your new home :) xxx

    1. Thanks Sam :) Having a craft room is great although I wish I had more time to actually use it! We are settling in well - hopefully will be able to see you before you head of travelling! x

  2. I love this idea! The bunting looks so cute, and it is a good way to reuse old knitwear. xox

    1. Thank you - I think I am going to be scouring charity shops to find some fun knitwear to make more bunting with! x

  3. adorable :) what a cute jumper that must've been! glad you've found another great way to see it every day
