bunting pillow by crafty dame

The third Iron Craft challenge of 2011 was “Just Bunt.” Since we created something functional last week, this week we went completely for whimsy and created a bunting or garland. What Iron Craft likes about this challenge is that it is ripe with possibilities for different applications & materials.

Heather’s favorite submission was the Bunting Pillow by Crafty Dame. Stunning! Crafty Dame is now auctioning it off to benefit the Queensland Flood Relief, so go bid on it!
