Project #4: Bunting.
I love bunting. I love sewing bunting. This 30 foot stretch of bunting was used for Dhara’s party, but will eventually grace her bedroom, that is whenever we move out of my parent’s home. Right now it’s hanging in our bedroom near Dhara’s crib.
Most bunting you find is triangular shaped, but I wanted something a little different, so I went with a semi-circle design (I just cut my own semi-circle on pattern drafting paper). And I’m so glad I did! The bunting is double sided, so I used a different fabric for the front of each semi-circle and a different fabric for the back. I used double folded bias tape for the red strip that holds the bunting together. It probably took me around 5 – 7 hours to complete the entire project — from cutting to sewing everything together. Of course with a baby, that time is split with some sewing here and some there. Gone are the days when I can complete a project in one sitting.
