Party Planning: Itty Bitty Bunting

by - Monday, March 07, 2011

Nothing says "party" like bunting. I love bunting and I still enjoy the bunting I made for Chloe's 1st birthday that we now have strung up in her room. For this birthday, I wanted to have some of the mini-bunting you see in my inspiration post (#2). Isn't it adorable? Totally a DIY project, I think.

I started off with some fabric tape from boqinana, baker's twine from Knot and Bow, and two wooden barbeque skewers.

First step was to cut 2-inch pieces of the fabric tape and fold them in half. Then I took the paper backing off the tape. Starting about 8 inches in from the end of the twine (I wanted enough twine to wrap around the skewer plus some extra), I placed the twine along the middle of the fabric tape. Fold the tape over the twine to create a little flag. Cut the bottom of the flag into a V shape. Repeat, leaving about 1/2 cm between fabric flags. Et voila, a little bunting fit for a birthday cake.

Or in this case, some banana bread.

And speaking of birthday, here's the soon-to-be two-year-old herself. This was her weekend morning outfit - winter hat, crazy scraggly hair at the back of her head (it looks like that EVERY morning!), training underwear, stained pajama top, and no pants. I especially enjoyed the lion imitation. It doesn't get much better than this :)
