A bunting we will go...

My nephew Riley turns 4 in a few days and his birthday party is this weekend. I wanted to make him something (to procrastinate on the projects I should be working on) so I decided to make him some bunting with his name on it. I had left over iron-on letters from the SGQ bunting, although I had to modify some letters to change them into what I needed. I used a few colors of Robert Kaufman Dazzle fabric that I bought a FQ stack of way back when and also some whale novelty print I had laying around. I don't normally buy novelty fabric but I spotted this a JoAnn's a long time ago and it is actually very soft with a nice hand. And Riley is probably the person in my life who will most appreciate whale fabric, by a long shot. I used pre-made bias tape again so this project went so fast. I top stitched with lime green thread again, this time as a contrast, to tie in with the green letters. I'm really pleased with how it all came together!

Final order

Happy stitching!
