I was going camping and needed some bunting. I know what your say….. “Who needs bunting on a tent?” Well I did. Luckily my friend had bought some of amazon, along with these lovely little twinkling fairy lights. Our tents looked seriously cool!
So I digress,
Bunting of the crochet variety was in order, which only got finished on the second morning of the holiday!
