A cheerful Bunting

20131010_140736

My love for Buntings continues.I love it how they add color to any space.I made this cute bunting in pastel colors for a little Princess,turning 6.
Her mum wanted her name on it,so I added the letters of her name in Felt and hand stitched it on top. I think it was a nice accent to my crochet triangles.

For this project,I used-

Blue Felt sheet
Red Felt scraps
assorted buttons
embroidery floss.

The whole thing took about an hour or so to finish. MIL taught me how to make a button-hole and I was pleasantly surprised how simple it was to make.
It was just the instant gratification I needed that day! And my joy doubled up when Nidhi,the birthday girl,loved it 🙂
