Bye Baby Bunting...



Mommas gone a hunting, trying to decide just where to hang her most recent sewing project! So i leave it up to you dear readers {yup, all three of you...now who's feeling special?} I can't quite decide where to hang my Halloween bunting...do you like it better on the mirror, or hanging from the mantel. I seem to be leaning towards the mantle, mostly because you get to see all of the flags... but what do you think? I apologize in advance for the less than superior photos,but a) this momma really needs a new camera & b) taking pictures in front of a mirror with recessed lighting is quite a challenge!






This was such a fun little project, and super easy. If you feel like you might be up for a little sewing, all you have to do is google "bunting tutorial". The only materials you need are a selection of cute fabrics and double sided bias tape in the coordinating color of choice. You do not need to be an expert seamstress to pull this off, it was actually very good practice for sewing in a straight line! I do however recommend experimenting with the size and shape triangles you want to use. The particular tutorial i found had a template, but i found it to be a little too large and a little too "perfect" so i just made my own. I have a feeling i will be making one of these babies for each of the upcoming holidays. A good excuse to buy some cute fabric and spruce up the fireplace i think! This one actually coordinates with the tablecloth i sewed for Ruby's little table, & by sewing i mean hemmed. : )
