Pink & Purple Bunting

We moved to Maui almost 3 years ago from Kauai. Even though I'm originally from Maui, it was one of the hardest decisions we had to make, because we had so many great friends on Kauai. A few months later, one of those friends moved all the way to Florida! That's clear across the country! Well, she just had her second baby, (a girl!) and I wanted to send her a gift. I made her this bunting:


I spied on her Facebook a quilt she made, and tried to stick with a similar color scheme. 

I make a lot of bunting, but for this one I wanted to use a bunch of ribbons on the ends, instead of just one, like I normally do. 

I love the detail in the white fabric. 
And I'm pretty much obsessed with the chevron/feather print on the left. 


BTW- Kulia is Ivy's middle name. Kit made that pallet for her room.



And Kit made this ALOHA pallet. 
(Have you linked up to our "ALOHA Friday" party yet? If not, click here! ... shameless plug.)

That blue-ish/purple is a really cool fabric too, and for some reason it's in the sale section at Sew Special!



I love making bunting. Here's what you need:

-fabric cut into triangles
-double fold bias tape
-ribbon(s) for hanging it

Pretty simple to make!


Thanks for visiting!
Aloha, Rebecca

    1. Thank you Connie! I always feel like I'm the non-quilter at your parties, so I'm glad I at least got a sewing project for you this time!
