Birthday Bunting

Filed under: sewing — Kristin @ 9:37 am

I helped a friend make some bunting for decorations for her three year old’s birthday party. There were two sets of colors, each consisting of four fat quarters and one regular quarter, which yielded 71 6″ wide and 7″ long triangles. We ended up with eight 9′ lengths of bunting.

Mendocino Sundress

Filed under: sewing — Kristin @ 5:25 pm

I made the Mendocino Sundress for myself from some lightweight linen. I made some slight changes to the pattern – shortened the skirt, included 1/4″ elastic in the top hem casing and added different straps. The best part? Pockets!
