Scrap Birthday Bunting




I decided to make a super easy bunting with some of the scraps that I have stashed away.  Mr. C has a birthday coming up next month, and Stashbusting September gave me a little motivation to put those scraps to good use.  If you look closely at the fabric choices you will see bits and pieces of changing pads, reversible toddler bibs, jelly jar toppers, quiet book page scraps, and torn bed sheets.  I thought that it turned out nicely.


I've seen these scrap buntings all over blogland and thought that I might as well give it a whirl.  I made my bunting about 7' long, and used strips that were between 7 and 10 inches long.  I tied all of my scrap strips onto a bit of extra length from my clothes line.

I can't wait to try another bunting.  I am dying to try a pennant bunting, but it looks like a bit more work than I am willing to put in at the moment.

Check out these great link parties.

Tricia, this is very cool, and such a wonderful colorful way to use up all those scraps. You can reuse this not only for your upcoming party, but with all those colors its versatile that you can use it everywhere, practically. Very cool idea. THANKS for LINKING UP to my new party!! :)
