I finally made this bunting! Last night, my daughter and I sewed this together...me taking a stab at sewing and her watching and pushing the foot pedal! I had big plans to have this done for a birthday party for my youngest daughter who turns five this week! The bunting is done, but I haven't even planned the party!
I have saved all the dresses with pretty fabric that both my daughters have worn. I have big dreams of making (having made!) a quilt for each one of my girls.
I used this fabric stiffener in the hopes that it would keep the delicate fabrics from fraying. It does cause the fabric to shrivel up a bit, but the look adds to the vintage style.
I look at each of these cuts of fabric and can remember when my girls were little and wore these dresses with the lovely prints. I also added some vintage prints from the Warm Biscuit Bedding Company. I absolutely adore their fabrics! Check out their line of vintage fabrics and you will find the strawberry toile and the little ducky print.
I will probably hang this in my shed, but on this lovely day, it hangs over our swing!
A trip to IKEA made me come home with this enamel pitcher! Under $5 and so adorable! I bought more for gifts! The pretty flowers of spring...does it get any better than that?
Thanks for stopping by!
