The other day my middle son's beautiful girlfriend (she is a music therapist) asked me tentatively if I would make them some vintage musical bunting for a "moving in present", as at long last they are setting up home together. How could I refuse? Even though the only bunting I 'd ever made up until now has been in 1/12th scale, I still felt quietly confident that this task should be relatively easy in comparison.
So....first up, I scoured our local car boot sale for old sheet music but to no avail, normally there are loads of old music/piano sheets around but not that particular day....typical! As time was of the essence, I then scoured Ebay and very quickly managed to obtain a whole bundle of random vintage music sheets of varying sizes really cheaply. They appeared to be from all kinds of old song books, ranging from hymns to folk songs. I chose pages from the folk song book.....as I thought they would be more apt and the lyrics more fun.
Am chuffed to bits with the result! Hope this has inspired you too.....as this could be adapted using all kinds of old vintage paper....now my head is buzzing with all sorts of ideas!
