I love bunting, I don't really enjoying making it but I love the end result so over the years we have built up quite a collection.  You can map the progression of my sewing through the bunting it's like the tree rings of my abilities.  The first buntings are now what I consider quite lame see the pic below left.

Here is an example of my primitive bunting, I think this pic makes it look better than it really is.  If you can see it is only one layer of fabric, just over locked around the edges and badly joined.

Bunting is so good for instant decorating, it doesn't pop, drip colour when wet or break (unless it is some of my early work.)   Rach the Funster over at Squiggly Rainbow has organized a Bunting swap - what fun.  See the link at the top left hand side of my blog page any one can join.

Back at my house it is the end of birthday season and our bunting has been up for two months.   I took some quick pics before it all gets packed away until the next fun event.  (Please excuse my security grills over every window surface in our house it's on my wish list to do away with one day but does a great job keeping the insects out.)

This is some ribbon with a bunting effect, a great way to use up all those odd bits of ribbon.
