some bunting, with his name on it. I have seen this around on the internet and thought it would be great for a boy. I find boys especially hard to make things for. If anyone has any more suggestions please leave me a comment. Below is a photo of the finished bunting.
This was surprisingly quick and easy to make. I simply chose the size of the top of the triangles, measured the point in the middle, which is the same measurement of the tops and then drew the sides down to this point. This gave me a triangle that was the right shape. I backed each of the front triangles with interface to make it a bit firmer, then drew out the name and appliqued the letters onto each triangle using a straight stitch and raw edge applique. You can see this a bit clearer in the top photo.
I always find that one project leads to another and because I detest buying wrapping paper (it only gets thrown in the bin) I made this cute bucket to put his gift in. He can then use this to store items in his bedroom.
I hope you all enjoyed these photos. I enjoyed making all of these items (can't wait to do more) and the best thing is they cost me nothing as I had all of the materials in my stash!
