Sew Cute!


I made my first bunting about five months ago for my friend's mother's retirement party. I had so much fun doing so that I knew it wouldn't be my last.

Regarding the child folk's outdoor play area, I really wanted a covered section - the logistics of which I am still struggling with. I will however be adding the bunting that I just can't seem to stop sewing.

As I wanted to keep the cost way, way down I used (a lot) of restraint and didn't purchase any new fabric for the bunting - I just gathered up my scraps, made a template out of bristol board (in two sizes) and went to town. That is the wonderful thing about bunting - you need remarkably little fabric to make an impact.

The bunting needs pressing and the photos are a tad dark as they were taken in the basement - I will reshoot the bunting when it is hung outside.

Thank you for stopping by.
