I nearly tripped over in the rush to grab The Union Jack Tray
I will use it on my new coffee table as a big place mat for Hot tea cups.
Secondly I have a real 'Thing' for Pyrex...A bit odd I know
but vintage pyrex reminds me of childhood
Love this little triangular bowl.
Lastly I've been after a new flan dish for
Our pies and cheesecakes.
All in all A good Charity shop Day and all for £4.50!

Begin the Flag construction by pinning a pale pink strip diagonally with a red gingham strip on top...
Begin to sew
piece by piece
Sewing all outer edges
securely in place
As you can see the flag now resembles
The Union Jack
Snip off all the over hanging edges
for less bulk
and a neater finish
Choose a contrasting fabric and cut it
8.5 ins x 8.5 ins
Face best sides together
Sew three sides of the square together
making sure a gap is at the top of the union jack
Turn right sides out
I use scissors to poke the corners out
Iron nice and flat
To hold the bunting together you can either use bias tape or like me make your own by cutting a long strip of fabric
