Project #4: Round Bunting

I am obsessed with ALL things bunting, so I was super excited for this one. I'm accustomed to the typical triangular flag bunting, so the round shape interested me. Rachel's home is so pretty and I was also excited to make something she was teaching.

I used some floral and hot pink fabric I had gotten from Freecycle, along with yellow felt I got in a huge lot from Goodwill online. I had a hard time pressing the fabric into the circles, but it worked out okay in the end. For the letters, I sketched them out backwards onto the felt and cut them out. Freehand cutting proved to be too difficult, and I'm pretty good at writing backward so I just went with that. I finished it off with some vintage light pink ribbon from my grandmother to pick up the pink in the floral print.

The result:

I LOVE IT. I want to make a ton of these with lots of inspiring words. Also great for gift-giving!

Here's a detail shot:

It was tricky maneuvering the machine around the letters, but I managed with a slow and steady pace. Definitely one of my favorite projects!
