DIY Bunting

After a stressful day at school yesterday I came home to a clean house with all the washing done and a lovely dinner in the slow cooker. It took me completely by surprise and it was lovely! So with all the extra time I had left I decided to make baby willow some bunting. This was my first attempt ever really sewing anything other than paper so it was quite an achievement. I had ordered some fabric off Etsy earlier in the week and it arrived yesterday so it was perfect timing.
I started by cutting letters out of felt approcimately 3 inches tall,
 I then measured how big the triangles needed to be and cut them out folded over so that I wouldnt have to sew the top end (so they looked like a diamond shape when they were cut out)
 I then sewed on the letters,
and then sewed around the edges of each of the bunting.
Last but not least I sewed them onto some red velvet ribbon purchased from Etsy

I snuck into their house this morning and hung it up before they arrived home from the hospital. I used one of the blackboards from Jessica's baby shower to write Welcome Home and placed some tissue paper pom pom's alongside.
I think it was a nice little surprise.

Have a great weekend, I'm off to the footy
