I wanted to show you the two sets of birthday bunting (or penants) I made for my two nieces children this summer. I had to wait until they showed up as both ended up very long in the mailman's hands. The second set took forever to arrive. In both cases, it missed the birthdays they were intended for but there is always next year.
These are easy to make and fun to use for any occassion. Even a garden party would be a perfect reason to hang them. I made one with bright colors for Haali and Mitchell and pink for little Zoe. You simply cut the triangles with pinking shears (I have a special blade for my rotary cutter) and then sew them into a piece of bias binding. The nice thing is you fold them up and put them away when not in use and iron them to hang well when you need them again. It is a Dutch tradition to hang plastic or paper bunting criss~cross over the living room at any birthday but I think fabric ones are much nicer.
The first photo was taken at our little cottage up north which is where I am off to right now. We are going to work this weekend on the fencing which hopefully will be finished. You can see the work on my other blog if you are interested. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
