a birthday bunting

birthday bunting

I finished up a birthday bunting this week for Joshua's upcoming birthday. While he was pleased with the look of it, I think he's a little concerned that I've only finished one angry bird. I'm pretty sure he thought my efforts would have been better spent on that rather than this bunting.

all wrapped up

I encouraged him not to fear. The angry birds will indeed get done in time. We still have a few weeks. Surely it won't be a problem.

I'm really happy with how this one turned out, although, next time I think I would applique the letters on. I zigzagged them on with the sewing machine. That was not easy. (You might notice the slightly crooked H. I call it character.) I'm just happy to have a banner that I can use over and over. I plan on making a girl birthday bunting in about 6 months when that birthday rolls around.

Did you create anything fun this week?

  2. Yes! Your bunting is beautiful! And I have no doubt that the angry birds will be done in time :-)
    My little girl had a birthday this week and her party is tomorrow. She wanted a "rainbow" theme so I made a rainbow "Happy Birthday" bunting from cardstock and sewed cardstock flower shapes (made with a shape punch) together to make garlands that are hanging from the ceiling. I also just finished baking a 6-layer rainbow cake :-) I wish I could post all of this on my blog but unfortunately our internet here isn't letting me access Wordpress. Which is why I haven't posted in 3 weeks. Hope to get the problem fixed soon...

  3. That's one lucky guy you have there, for he has a Mom that goes all out to celebrate. Love the bunting and the angry bird.

  4. I love your bunting! I've been in bunting mode myself lately. I'm working on a set of holiday buntings; Christmas, Valentine's day, St. Patrick's day, Flag day/4th of July, and still to be completed New Year's Eve and Halloween. I did a birthday bunting a while back. I'm tempted to do another to use your idea of pieced letters.

  6. Great job on the birthday bunting! I didn't even notice the H being crooked. I can see where he would be concerned about the angry birds though. I kind of like those angry birds, too!

  7. I love the expression of your young man. My boys detest being in photos. This is such a great idea. I am wondering if I could whip up a gender neutral one for all the birthdays around here?! I know it will take effort to get one done, much less two! Enjoy seeing what is going on "in your studio!"

  12. What a good idea to make a banner that you can use over and over again! So pretty...I have been itching to make a bunting too, but have so many other unfinished projects I need to finish first! Hmmm, I wonder if I could make one from paper instead of fabric so I don't have to sew...

  13. It looks great, and I didn't even notice a crooked letter at all! I love his face in that picture! :)

    P.S. I was in your area at the beginning of the week, but I was on a mission trip with our students. I thought of you, though! I'll be back next month & hope to make some plans to meet up!!
