More Bunting

So, I made some more bunting for my photography prop stash. I can't wait to use it. The colors are fun and flowery. It really is so easy to make.

Just go get the triangle template I gave you on the last bunting post,
1-cut your fabric
2-sew the right sides together
3- turn right side out
5-pin to the binding (make sure it is double fold binding)
6-sew a straight line on the binding and your done!

Here I just cut squares of burlap and then hot glued the lace to the burlap. Easy.

I would love to see pictures if any of you out there make some bunting. I have some more bunting that I want to make. So you will be seeing more posts on bunting. I just think it's so cute. You can make it for holidays to hang on your mantel, or for parties, or for anything else you want to use it for. Have fun bunting!! :D

Here is a post on some flowers that I made the other night. The first two pictures are cute little flowers for babies and toddlers. I first found these from Make It and Love It. She has made a template for the flowers and has pictures on how she made them. I made some for my cousins baby shower a while back. They are just so cute. I especially love the grey one. They are made out of felt and thread! I hot glued the elastic on. Easy!!

These next flowers I made just by using ribbon that I had. The ones below I had used a lace that I had found sitting right next to the double fold binding, and they were on sale. Love the orange and purple. All I did was cut a circle of white felt, and started from the outside and worked my way in hot gluing as I went. I would ruffle the lace as I went along. glued some pearls and whalaa!!
The rosette flowers you pretty much see everywhere! I added some of my left over lace, added a clip and some pearls. love these colors.

this is just velvet ribbon that I ruffled and glued as I twirled it.
I love the color grey and lace, so this was a favorite.
1- cut out 8 circles of the grey fabric and 8 of the lace.
2-fold the circle in half, then in half again.
3-I cut it to look like a heart so when you unfold it it looks like a flower with petals.
4-I then put one grey circle with one lace circle and folded them together
5-I then glued the corner of the folded flowers to the center of the felt circle and just repeated.
6-you will have 4 folded flowers that will make up the bottom layer.
7-I then did the same for the second row, but I started by putting the first folded flower over one of the seams, that way each folded flower that you put down covers a seam (it makes it more fluffy). Does that make sense? Then add the pearl and clip and you are good to go.
*just a little note after i have cut the folded circle to look like the heart and have unfolded and have added the lace to it I fold it back up so the petals don't match up which gives it the more "petally" (i know that is not a word, but i like it) flower look.
Well, I hope you go and make a lot of flowers for your girls. I wish I had girls to put these on, but I dont. So I made them to use on the babies and girls for my photography. Let me know if you like them, or if I confused you on the instructions (which I am pretty sure I did because I'm not the best at explaining things). Have a good night!
