More bunting

My dear friend Jessica's baby shower is today. We're due 3 days apart. Isn't that so fun?

I went on a bunting tear while we were up in Mammoth (you can make a lot of flags when you're not snowboarding), and here's a little peek of the set I made her:




(That's a wooden dear head in the background, FYI. We're not hunters or anything).

Hers turned out soooo cute. I attempted to steer clear of pink, but turns out that's not possible when you know you're buying fabric for a baby girl. But I mixed in some nice neutrals and oranges and blues too. It is manageably feminine set of flags.

Those in the background are the ones I made for our baby. I seriously had the entire living room of my parents' house up there strewn with flags. Everyone was a collective good sport about the baby shower themed New Years.

Also, I LOVE my new sewing machine. Love love love love. I feel oddly complete as a mother-to-be now that I have one that I can reliably operate on my own.

Can I ask what kind of sewing machine you got for christmas. I'm taking my first sewing class on Monday and cant decide which one is right for me....

These are fantastic! I have two baby showers coming up (not mine - friends') and would love to give this project a try. Can you share a step-by-step tutorial for those of us who aren't graced with innate sewing & creative talent? :)

Linda - Mine is the Janome Sew Precise. I love it. It does all sorts of cute stitches, but it's super simple to operate. You might see what machine you use in your class and if you like it, just go for it. That's how I chose mine. Might as well get the one you were taught to operate, right?

sk- they are double sided. I have to say these are extremely time consuming bunting. I'm sure you could just cut out each flag with pinking shears and call it a day.

ashleigh - I'll do my best! I may have burned out on bunting for the time being in favor of baby bloomers and the like, but maybe I'll get a third wind.
