I have a new nephew! As I did knitted bunting for my niece when she was born I wanted to do the same for him. Changed it up a but and did a fabric bunting instead, mainly due to time constraints and the fact my sewing machine was out!
To do the letters I printed out the text at the right size and using a rotary cutter and scalpel cut out the letters. Using a very tight zig zag stitch I went around the edges of the letters on one side of the bunting flags. Then with a straight stitch sewed the flags rightside facing then turned rightway out. Then I over sewed the tops to close the flags and attach the ribbon.
All fabric bought from Abakans in Manchester.

I originally organised the squares in shade order and it looked a bit dull. So colours are sort of grouped together but shaken up.
The large pink piece became the borders and it is backed in fleece that I bought from Abakans in Manchester.
Did this on the sewing machine and finished it off by hand when turned inside out.
