Birthday Cake Bunting...

With little Elli-Boo's birthday just around the corner, I'm starting to iron out the details... I've already mentioned we're having a Teddy Bear's picnic; and I think I'm the one most excited about it!

I like designing my birthday cakes myself, like I did with Fern's My Little Pony cake earlier this year. But I was a bit stumped on what to do for Elliott... until I found a tutorial for this:

Birthday cake bunting!!

And now my cake design is clear in my head, and I am tres excited about it! I'm planning on making my own bunting and I'll be sure to share with you how it went next week when Im back from NZ and have access to my sewing machine again! But for now, I thought I'd share the tute I found on Twirling Betty (blog eye candy - beware) for anyone else who cares to give it a go! The instructions look super-simple and the cool thing is that you can then use the bunting as decoration afterward! Brilliant!

I bought myself a little set of letter stamps from Typo (I've been eyeing them off for ages) to print Elliott's name onto the flags with; I think I'll use black paint rather than ink. Not sure whether I'll ust use one colour of fabric or perhaps a mix? Back with the results next week!


  1. Harper and Elliot's cakes are going to be similar! I love cake bunting!

  2. I adore birthday cake bunting! I can't wait to see what you come up with :)
