I had the kids down for a snooze, had a load of washing going, had blogged for the day and even replied to all my emails so I took the chance to get some serious flag making happening..... I set up the ironing board and sewing machine then pulled out the new huge pile of gorgeous fabrics that had arrived the day earlier and got to work!
After cutting and sewing a great big bunch of flags I made myself a cup of tea, grabbed a biscuit and plonked myself on the couch with the newspaper and began turning the flags in the right way when I realized my BooBoo!!
If you wikipedia the word 'BooBoo' you'll see it can mean a few things -
Boo Boo (Yogi Bear)
Boo Boo, a chihuahua; the World's Smallest Living Dog
An injury, bruise, or laceration
Now there is no cartoon characters or small dogs in my home and I haven't had any injuries lately so it's safe to assume the BooBoo I had discovered was an error!
In my flag making frenzy I had cut and sewn six flags with one side the right way up and the other side upside down!!
This is where the Bonus part for you comes in..... I went ahead with making the flags into a bunting banner and have decided to give it away!!
Why would you want a "BooBoo Bunting" I hear you ask.... here are my arguments for and against - I'll leave it up to you to decide if it's worth your while...
* Unique 'one of a kind' banner
* Talking point / Conversation starter
* Made with Alexander Henry's 'Traffic Jam' fabric so it is a busy enough print you might not notice.....
* Only one side is upside down so it can be hung against a wall & you wouldn't see 'wrong' side
* It's free!!
* Not great if you're a perfectionist
So who's in for this fun and VERY unique giveaway??? All you have to do is leave me a comment here telling me about a time you made a BooBoo.... it can be a BooBoo made with your art or craft or a BooBoo made with your kids, while cooking, with your in laws, while driving.... anything! The one that gives me a best giggle will not only make me feel less like a twit for making my BooBoo but will also be the new owner of this bright, fun and individual set of Giggleberry flags!
