Bunting Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: January 05, 2011

The contest to make a bunting kit -- those festive little flags that seem to be everywhere in the crafty world these days -- produced a batch of lovely entries. Loveliest of all, however, was Jenimp's Dreaming of Spring Bunting by jenimp. This is her second win (remember the <a href=""> scanned nature items</a> contest?) and well-deserved. Congrats, Jeni!
