More Birthday Goodies...

I decided to make some fabric bunting for little Maisie's bedroom, which could be hung either on the wall or around the cot.
Maisie's Birthday Bunting

I really enjoyed making this, as you could see it coming together literally piece by piece. I found some lovely fabrics from some local fabric shops and couldn't resist buying them for her.

Making this bunting did take me quite a while as it is double sided and all hand made. I had to draw around my template and cut each piece out by hand. There are 3 triangles in each piece as I have lined the middle of each triangle with some plain calico fabric. I've done this because I wanted it to be very durable and I also didn't want the print to show through on the other side. You don't have to line bunting though if you don't want to.

All in all my bunting measured around 2 meters, which is quite a lot. I made so much because my friend has really big rooms in her house and if she wanted to hang it up, it would be enough to cover the wall properly. Here are a few photos of the finished article...
