    I don't think that person knew what she was talking about. Bunting is usually red, white, and blue in long strips used for 4th of July decoration, is it not? At any rate, your tree is unique and as cute as can be!

    I think it's adorable. Don't pay any attention to negative Nellies! They are jealous because they can't do what you can do!

    Bunting definition:
    1. a coarse, open fabric of worsted or cotton for flags, signals, etc.

    2. patriotic and festive decorations made from such cloth, or from paper, usually in the form of draperies, wide streamers, etc., in the colors of the national flag.

    3.flags, especially a vessel's flags, collectively.

    Doesn't look like any of the above to me. It's darling! Good job.

    The person who told you that is a negative Nellie. I push those people out of my life as fast as I can. It is a very cute Christmas tree and the work you put into it is considerable and very professional looking. Kudos to you for a lovely project.

    So who really cares what it is called. That is just darling and you did a great job. I love that. Ike someone else said there are always some who are just jealous and like to "rain on your parade" just ignor them and know you have a piece of art that is well done. I have a friend who only sew when she needs to patch, but we have exchanges Christmas and B-Day gifts for about 30 yrs now, and I am always trying to give her something unique and different for Christmas- she loves Christmas and decorates a lot then, she also always gives me some new ornament on my B-day in Sept and also at Christmas for my minature Christmas Tree. Last yr. made her a darling tree skirt for her minature tree. This would be a great gift. Would you share your pattern?

    Ooh... I am sorry but I seem to have started a little controversy here. In the UK, bunting is made from triangles (or other shapes) sewn together and sewn between bunting tape. The tree is made from equilateral triangles which are stuffed with soft toy stuffing and then the corners are joined together to create the tree shape.

    Bunting is used in the UK for celebrations, nurseries and can be hung in and outdoors. There is no limit to the colours and patterns you can use, as you can see from some bunting I made from an old people's group last year.
