Bunting definition: small flags strung together, often gaily coloured, generally used as a decorative accessory to a celebratory occasion.
I’m currently traveling around the West Australian outback and wondered how I could photograph the magnificent landscape to include some crafty aspect. Then I recalled my very first post on this blog about the guerilla knitting I happily chanced upon in Melbourne, and thought why not create a bit of Bush Bunting to hang in the arid countryside. So I did, embossing each gaily coloured pennant with a kiss, a cuddle or a heart, so there was a bit of loving flapping in the outback breeze.
Another place very well deserving of bunting – though (sadly) I’ve never seen it – is on prams. The biggest celebration I can think of is the birth of a child. Therefore it makes perfect sense to put bunting all over a pram – sending a happy message to the community at large upon them seeing the extravagantly decorated baby transport.
So dear readers, for the sake of all those babies who should be celebrated with pennants flying from their little carriages as they are proudly strolled along streets by their parents/grandparents/aunties etc. please knit some bunting for them! It’s no penance to knit a pennant!
