364 Unbirthdays

Tomorrow is my birthday. Usually I am very excited about just about anyone's birthday. It's their special day and I like to celebrate. Mine included, I am that girl that counts down. But this year I let it slide and didn't even mention it until like 15 days out! That's ridiculous. So to counter my foolish oversight I've been busy making decorations for a fun little get together with kids tomorrow at the new place. I'm super excited about this bunting pattern that I found so I wanted to share it with you! Her's is so colorful and fun, and here is my humble rendition.

1/4 yd of fabric
Double binding edging, cut to desired length I used about 1 1/2 yds.

Trace a circle onto a thick stock piece of paper and cut out to use as a guide, iron fabric. Cut out circles (or whatever shape you'd like) and fold the fabric right sides facing and cut through the middle. Sew along the outside edge, leaving the top open.

Turn right side out and iron flat.

Tuck the raw edge of the circle into the double binding and secure with pins to sew.

Sew the bunting into place. I placed mine six inches apart. I wanted to use the accordion folded fans, inspired by this pin, too for the wall decorations so the spacing worked perfectly for me. Happy Friday! And have a good weekend too!
