I ♥ bunting

I think my first association with bunting flags was when I doing backstroke for school swimming and those little flags were meant to remind that the end of the pool was near so I didn’t bump my head. (I still managed to bump it most times anyway – I like running and most sports, but I’m not a naturally talented swimmer!)

Fast forward (quite) a few years and bunting flags are everywhere, especially used as decoration in baby’s nurseries and kid’s bedrooms.

I’m still plodding away at making stuff for the upcoming market, including a few strings of bunting.

So far I’ve made nautical, pirate and tea-party bunting and have some vintage sheet bunting cut out and ready to go.

I looked around our house and thought I’d show you some of the bunting we have round here…

… And one of two in Noah’s room as well! This was one of the first things I sewed for him.

Here are some other bunting related products I found on Felt

and of course … DIY Mini bunting made by the super clever Stella

There are a heap more – see for yourself

Do you have a bunting collecting habit/ obsession like me?

I love bunting, I'm making my first lot at the moment, but my ends aren't as good as yours! How did you do the initials, that's super cute.

Oh I sure do Jenny. I was a little obsessed with them for a while so have quite a few gracing corners of our home :)
Love your nautical bunting.
