I am a big advocate of recycling and upcycling, using things you already have to refashion into something new. I love taking something old or purposeless and giving it a new lease of life and meaning. As I have said before, my favourite room in our little flat is the kitchen, mainly due to its cosy proportions and homeliness. To give it that extra quaint feeling, I used some offcuts I had in my fabric stash to make some bunting to go above the balcony door. I used lace trimming snipped from an old tablecloth that I used to make my pillowcases and cut the triangles out with crimping scissors so I didn't have to waste fabric sewing two sides together.
