Birthday Bunting - complete!



I blogged a little while ago about the Birthday Bunting I was sewing for my baby girl's first birthday. I wanted to do a follow-up post with some photos of the finished project, so here they are! I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. It was a joint effort between me and my Mum, we both used different stitches, but I think that adds to the handmade effect.





As I mentioned in the previous post, I wanted to make something that would last for years and become something of an annual tradition. I will stop hanging the bunting out when she's about 23 and can't stand it any longer! Maybe she will love it so much, she will use it for her own children, who knows.



We had such a lovely day on her birthday, we had cakes...



balloons...



presents...



It felt like a huge milestone and I was very proud of her on the day as she soaked up the attention and took the whole day in her stride. This past year has been amazing, a real rollercoaster of emotions, highs and lows. I feel like I have packed more into the past 365 days than I have ever done. I'm looking forward to the coming years, her personality is really starting to emerge...and I think she's going to be quite a character!

I think I'm going to start blubbing again. She's so beautiful and you are such a lovely mum to her and you deserve a big fat well done! The first year is very hard and tiring and you've been brilliant. *sniff*

ps - I like whowever thought of sewing the through the middle of the H - much more efficient use of time and stitches, why do I never think of things like that?!

MegPS: Hurrah indeed!!

SallyF: Now don't start me off by saying lovely things *sniffs* The first year is a shock to the system, but it's still lovely watching them grow. I definitely think 10 months onwards is the best stage (although ask me that again after she's thrown her first tantrum in few months time)

My mum did the 'H', she is always good at working out the most efficient way to sew things - I bow down to her skills!
