I Spy Baby Bunting

I have been thinking of bunting ideas for website for some time now, in between working on various quilts and all the other things that I try to fit into my already very busy life.  

And there is nothing like a bit of online 'fabric browsing' to get some inspiration.  Well, it didn't take long for me to find the perfect fabric, something that would be suitable for both boys and girls, for a new nursery perhaps...and this is what I came up with.

I've decided to call it simply 'The Circus' (does what it says on the tin and all that).  I just adore the gorgeous little lion and the elephant. 

 And isn't this giraffe so cute!

I think the bunting on the bunting is really fun, and it works well to break up the yellow prints.

I loved this owl so much, that I couldn't resist a little applique and give him a flag all to himself.

Well if the owl had his own flag, then the lion had to have one as well, right?  He is king of the jungle after all.

And this teddy is the perfect circus train driver.  I really like the small dot print that you can see in the corner of this photo too.

I've had great fun making this bunting and I hope to make a quilt from these fabrics some time too.  For once I have been sensible and bought this fabric and lots of coordinates in large quantities, to avoid  the fabric shortages I have been experiencing while making my French General quilt.  Definitely a good move!

I have now listed this bunting on my website in my online shop.

Linking up with Plum and June's Monday Link up
