Super Simple Personalised Bunting

Hi lovelies, I hope you're having a wonderful long weekend. We didn't get out on a walk yesterday as we'd hoped, as the weather was just too awful, but it did mean we got a few more chores done! I wanted to share a little project that I completed a while back, that is so simple and easy to whip up in less than half an hour. A perfect gift, I decided to make up some pretty, personalised bunting for a lovely friend who had just had a sweet baby girl. Since she'd already been inundated with baby clothes, I thought a special personalised gift would be fun and appreciated.

Here's what you need to make this super simple bunting:

A few things extra that aren't pictured that you'll need:

  • Spray glue {or a needle and thread}
  • Sewing machine
  • Pinking shears
  • Pins

I'm afraid this is one of those tutorials where I got a bit carried away and didn't take photos as I went, but please take my word for it - this is honestly the easiest thing to make. I'm so rubbish at sewing, and I managed it - so you can too!

Here's what to do...

  • Cut as many triangles out of your fabric scraps using the pinking shears as you'd like {I chose nine, but it depends how long the baby name is. It's nice to have an even number of blanks each side of the name flags.} By using the pinking shears it means the fabric won't fray, and it'll save you having to do any fancy hemming etc. 
  • Cut the letters of the name out of your felt sheet. You can freehand write the letter before cutting out, or use a stencil if you prefer.
  • Iron the fabric triangles and bias binding.
  • Pop the fabric triangles into the fold of the bias binding, tucking in so that they all look even. Pin in place.
  • Using a sewing machine, simply sew up on the bias binding to anchor the fabric triangles in place.
  • Attach the felt letters onto the fabric triangles using spray glue. If you prefer, you can stitch the letters in place. Whatever you fancy.

Hey presto, your pretty personalised bunting is complete!
