Little maids all in a row carnival doll bunting and science in Antartica
What does my new strip of carnival doll bunting have to do with science in Antartica? I shall explain.
I have just finished some bunting I have been planning for a while, made out of a tester strip of my Carnival doll fabric and using some backing fabric sourced from an op-shop. The doll images are lined up front and then back just like a set of cut out paper dolls on the bunting panels. The colours work well with the backing fabric and it was a fun and quick project, just the way I like them.
And now the explanation about Antartica.
Friends of my parents have a daughter who as we speak is serving a 12 month stint in the science base in Antartica. When at home in Australia, she is keen on op-shopping for fabric. As she is away for a year, she culled her stash, and part came to me. So by a very long bow, my Carnival doll bunting is related to science in Antartica - easy!
