This past weekend, I left sunny warm California and braved the cold New Jersey winter to visit my best friend and celebrate the impending arrival of her baby girl. Since I was bringing all of the decorations with me, I needed something that would survive being crammed into my carry-on bag. And to make it worthy of a cross country trip, I wanted something that would last beyond the shower and possibly be used as nursery decoration. My best friend loves birds so the bird fabric was a no-brainer. She also told me she was incorporating yellows and greens into the nursery, so I picked fabrics that I thought she would like and would complement the decor.
I followed the tutorial here with a few modifications. I originally wanted to do this "no sew" with Stitch Witchery but it was actually more of a hassle getting all of the seams to line up. I caved and borrowed my friend's sewing machine. To give the bunting flags a little more structure, I used fusible interfacing. I had wanted to use the zig-zag trim (pictured below) to attach the triangles, but it ended up looking sloppy and unfinished. So to create a cleaner edge, I switched back to the extra wide double fold bias tape.
