Retro Bird Bunting

As well as blogging about my quilty adventures, I have a little website where I sell my wares.  I tend not to  harp on about mention it too much on my blog, because I figure it's a bit like trying to sell ice to Eskimos!
I spend a lot of my evenings fulfilling bunting orders, but again, I tend not to blog about it much, because I am usually making the same bunting, with different names on.  It wouldn't make for very interesting blog posts!
But recently I had a customer who chose the fabric she wanted for her bunting and it was great to work with something totally different.  She chose this gorgeous Retro Bird fabric, available from Fabric Rehab. 
I auditioned a few co-ordinating fabrics from my stash, and I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out. 
I fussy cut the fabric to show off the gorgeous Retro Birds as much as possible. 
My customer wanted to have a couple of hearts on the flags, and I think they work pretty damn well. 
So well in fact that I'm going to add hearts as an option on all of my bunting on the website from now on.
And here's the personalised lettering. 
I'm pleased with the photos of this bunting.  I usually find it really hard to photograph something so long and fluttery!  And bright blue sky makes the world of difference.
I'm particularly pleased with these photos because I took them while my husband was at work.  I had to rely on a slightly smaller helper to get these shots...
Didn't she do well!!  (And off pre-school with Chicken Pox!!)
Thank you so much for stopping by.

  5. Very cute bunting. I find that I always choose the same kinds of fabrics over and over, so it is probably refreshing to have someone else choose for you for once! I love all the little details you incorporated, especially the red thread to stitch the white binding to the flags.

  6. Fabulous bunting, I love the zigzag on the heart - so neat! Hope your chicken-poxy-girl is feeling ok x

  7. Loving the bunting, and great to see such a smiley helper! :o)

  9. Your buntings are adorable!! I've always wanted to make some, but never have. I love how you fussy cut them - and the letters are the perfect touch! I hope your little helper is feeling better! Chicken pox are NO fun!
