What are you most proud of? How the bunting turned out and especially how I was able to put into practice some of the skills I learned on the Crafsty BOM's for sewing on the lettering. I am also pleased that my daughter could not find bunting to match her theme of black and red (ladybirds) and how I was able to give her this:))) Just for fun, I added a little picture of the ladybird birthday cake Sue and I made. I am also proud that I have added to my repertoire... another fun thing to make:)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When cutting out letters or numbers remember it has to be back-to-front!!! I took two atempts at this, I know I should have known better! Be careful when choosing fabric for the letters as they need to stand out from the background fabric... some of mine kind of disappeared:( This tutorial by Josie is very easy to understand with wonderful pictures.

Thanks emafish, the bunting was for Lily-Kate's 1st birthday but my daughter says she is keeping it up for over the Christmas season.

How lovely - and it's something that can come out every year - and even (eventually) for 18th, 21st and even her wedding! (Gosh - I'm getting carried away!)

Gosh wedding??? I don't want to think 'boys' just yet haha!!! Thanks Pat, I was actually going to put a '1' on it but changed my mind as I thought she would be able to use it on other birthdays or even in her bedroom.

Thanks Pam, Sue was so pleased... I love doing surprises it is such fun. I always made my children birthday cakes and it was surreal helping my daughter make one for her little daughter:)
