My 1st Completed SavVy {Seasons} Set!!! (the Milk & Cookies one)



I finished my first bunting set this weekend for the SavVy {Seasons} Swap, and I'm SO excited about how it turned out. I've never made a bunting before and I completely made up my own pattern and instructions, so it was a huge gamble! Even worse, I didn't even look at other bunting instructions for basic construction tips because I'm an idiot like that. My husband will tell you, I can be a bit lazy sometimes and take wild & hare-brained shortcuts...so it's a real miracle this project didn't crash and burn!

I had a few concerns about the snaps, but they work really well. I was afraid that when the bunting was hung, the pieces attached with snaps (cookies & milk bottles) would swivel on the snap and not align with the curvature of the flags. But so far, so good! I'm starting work on the Christmas Trees + Santas set tonight and I'll keep ya'll posted.

P.S. I really hope my secret swap partner has a fireplace, because it would be SO PRECIOUS to hang this over the fireplace the night before Christmas. It would be like a welcome banner pointing Santa to his treats! ;)





I'm seriously gonna have to make another one of these for our fireplace this Christmas!
