I feel like bunting signifies joy and celebration. When you see it you know that something fun is happening.
This is the other side:
The ribbons on the side coordinate with the fabrics in the blocks. I liked how I could recycle the "NA HOKU" ribbon that was on the package of the pearl earrings I got from Kit for my birthday. Anyone in Hawaii would see that and think, "Ummm... why are you reusing Na Hoku's ribbon?" I don't think they'll know what it is in Mexico... :)
I hope these little soft blocks and bunting bring joy to those little ones in the orphanage!
