Now it's been quite popular in the UK for a while now, I think I've seen it in all the major magazines here and well I had to make my own.

I used some fabric left over from a bundle I previously bought on ebay, it was like an old floral sheet. I painted the letters on using some lilac fabric paint and backstitched round them, sewed them up to the cotton tape and added a pom pom to each point. It isn't perfect but I love it and it looks homey I think. I used pink stitching the whole time to contrast the white background and incorporate the flowers more.

Can't wait for my bday in March.

C&C always welcome Smiley

Very cool!  I love buntings - I need to make a big one too - I made a miniature one for my partner in a swap.   Cheesy  Yours is so pretty and springy!  Fits with your birthday month perfectly.   Smiley

Great idea to paint the letters! I made something similar recently and embroidered the letters. It took forever and didn't turn out as good as yours!!

Nice work Smiley.

Thanks guys. On the next one I'll definitely consider the size of the font as the width of the H and A's made it harder to keep them at the same level I had placed the i's etc so it's a bit up and down.
