More bunting, this time with names

I  made this on the weekend for a baby shower. Luckily the future mum had already picked out the name and (obviously) knew the sex.

I used the boys vintage sheet that I found at the oppy last week with the ships, trains and cars on it.  Girls banners will be a whole lot easier than boys, there is just so much floral and pretty fabric around.

It turned out sew well (get it?) that I have decided to make these to order in my etsy shop. I may have a problem because as there is so much labour involved, I will have to price accordingly. Everything is handcut, the letters are handstitched, all the flags are stiffened and fully lined.  I may be making a rod for my own back, but I just can't compromise on the finish. (I supposed that is my ragtrade training) Plus, I fugure there are people out there doing the lower end of the may mean there is a market for this type of bunting? Who knows.

I will wait and see and give it a go. xxNick
