Eid Bunting

Hello dears,

I promised and I deliver.

I have been working on a fabric bunting for our upcoming Eid festival possibly on July 18.

For those of you who have visited my blog before, know about my infatuation with buntings. When I have been looking for ideas, I discovered buntings are really ‘in’ nowadays, Fabric, lace, burlap, tule, you name it and you will find bunting of each type and colour at weddings or birthday parties etc.

I had already made a baby bunting out of cotton and completely fell in love with it. You will find the details and my tale of  the ‘ultimate discovery of a bunting’ here.

I tried that same method and this time added letters to it. I struggled with it and using felt had made my other business bunting heavy that I made for an outdoor fair.11329978_870804266318159_6153238584583057219_n

But then I found this blog where the crafter suggested to just sketch out letters with a free hand and cut them out rounded.

I stitched them on to the triangles but then I realized that it needs some bling. Off to Walmart I went and bought a fabric glitter glue to add a shimmery border to the letters. They turned out so cute.

Sew them together and viola! My Eid Bunting is ready.

If you happen to drop by please let me know how it looks. Thanks and till the next blog!

Well, well, I finally did it. Created my first gift and a neighbour’s baby boy will be the lucky one to endure my beginner’s sewing skills.

My hubby told me our neighbour had a baby boy around Christmas and we just got to know a day or two ago. (Thanks to Saskcathewan’s frigid Winter and four weeks of -45 C, we don’t even see our neighbours). The first thing he said was, what can we give them as a gift? I just happened to stumble upon a fellow wordpress blogger yesterday: A Stitch to Scratch’s Barmy about Bunting blog. I fell in love with the idea and even though I promised NO MORE FABRIC after the Friday haul, I went to Fabricland and got two blue cotton blends for the baby. I don’t like to be stuck with ‘only-boy’ or ‘only-girl’ patterns, so I picked a blue striped and a neutral baby print with some bright colours and Voila!

Here’s the video I followed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXRE9QlSEFo&list=FLPWWdmLpEF6wVJ7e1oSkD3g&index=1

Totally love how it turned out. My Firsts this project were:

– I cut triangles for the first time

– I bought and sewed with binding for the first time

– I made a gift for the first time

– I made a bunting for the first time

Here’s to more ‘Firsts’ in my sewing adventure. If you happen to drop by, do let me know what you think . If you can suggest any other ideas, that would be great.
